The Bochenek family was nothing but smiles last Saturday as all five kids received the bedrooms of their dreams from a local nonprofit that offers room makeovers to children suffering from life-threatening diseases.
After a year-long battle with bone cancer, 10-year-old Brianne "Breezy" Bochenek recently learned she was cancer-free. San Ramon-based nonprofit Special Spaces, which offers children who are fighting life-threatening diseases with dream room makeovers, selected her to be their tenth recipient.
Nearly 20 volunteers spent three days working on three rooms in which the five children share.
Breezy, who shares a room with her sister Brooklyn, got a "Hollywood glam" room, while their brother Brenen, 13, received a guitar-themed room. Siblings Bryce, 19, and Brittney, 18, both away at college, will get to relax in their beach-themed room when they return home.
Check out the photos above to see the kids' reactions to their beautiful rooms along with the volunteers that made it possilble.
