Dream Bedroom Makeovers
for Kids with Cancer
A childhood cancer diagnosis changes every aspect of a child’s life. Attending doctor’s appointments, visiting the hospital, and receiving treatments and surgeries all contribute to kids being out of their comfort zone.
In recognition of its Childhood Cancer Program’s 10-year anniversary, Northwestern Mutual, through its Foundation, collaborated with Special Spaces to surprise 10 children across the U.S. affected by childhood cancer with dream bedroom makeovers.
Throughout the month of September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Northwestern Mutual and dedicated volunteers from the company’s local financial offices surprised children in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Dubuque, Iowa, Buffalo, New York, Chicago, Illinois and Chattanooga, Tennessee with dream bedroom makeovers. Here are some of the special spaces created.
“Every child deserves a special place at home to call their own, and it is especially invaluable for children with cancer to have a place where they can escape their worries and regain their strength.”
