An amazing organization visited Cedar Rapids over the weekend to give a VERY deserving girl the bedroom of her dreams!

9-year-old Gracelyn Springer is one tough kid. Back in November of 2020, she was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma, and since then she's had quite the journey. According to Facebook, "she has endured chemo, radiation and has suffered permanent hair loss due to the radiation." But, Gracelyn is a fighter. Or a "Warrior Princess," as her mom calls her. The My Happy Place website says that she has been in remission for six months, and can officially be declared cancer-free after five years of clear scans!

Here's where My Happy Place comes in. The non-profit organization helps make a difference in the lives of kids battling illnesses by giving them a bedroom makeover. The goal is to provide them with a "fun, safe, and therapeutic environment where they can thrive and heal." Thanks to generous volunteers and plenty of donations, Gracelynn was on the receiving end of a makeover from My Happy Place over the weekend, and the results were amazing!

Gracelyn's mom says that she is Gracelyn is a bit of a girly-girl and a “fashionista,” so her new room is a reflection of that. Designer Shannon Huey gave her a canopy bed with fairy lights, a hanging chair, and an art center. After the big reveal on Sunday, Gracelynn told the crew, "thank you for making my dream come true!" Here are some photos from the event, courtesy of Northern Star Studios:
