From the outside, 11-year-old Holly is your average pre-teen. She loves Selena Gomez, make-up, cheerleading, and doing her nails like any girl her age. However; unlike most she has Neurofibromatosis. So, when Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina told Holly they would grant her one, true wish, it was no wonder that her wish was for a room makeover!
Holly decided she needed her own special space where she could “hide out” and do her own thing! For her new room, Holly requested purple walls, a desk with a vanity mirror, a rack for her nail polish, a poster of her idol, Taylor Swift, and a zebra print comforter for her bed! Once complete, the space was exactly what a girl Holly’s age deserved, and precisely what she had wished for.
When Holly finally saw her room completed, she loved it! She couldn't wait to sleep in her new bed and set up her new vanity. She finally had a space of her very own that truly screamed ‘Holly!’ Make-A-Wish provided Holly with a place where she could be anything she wanted, away from the routine hospital visits that had begun to take over her family’s life. Wishes like Holly’s couldn't be granted without the support of companies like the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
