Misha is our chapter’s first Special Spaces child that we have had the privilege of providing a dream room makeover for. What a delight this family is. Misha has struggled with Leukemia and has been quite the warrior in his ongoing battle. Misha was so excited to have a new room as he spends a lot of time in it. He is all about sports, except for boxing, Super Mario Brothers, and cats. He loves to read and his favorite colors are green and blue. So Special Spaces partnered with the Home Depot to make Misha’s dream room come true!

Misha's Room Makeover

Many thanks goes out to Misha’s family for being so gracious and opening up their home to us. Brendan, Laura and Misha, you and the rest of your family are a very special and we all feel honored to know you all. Misha is a very sweet boy and we enjoyed being around his positive energy.

We would also like to give a huge thanks to Christine and Steve, along with the Home Depot team, who stepped up when we needed you most. We could not have done this makeover without your care and willingness to make things happen! We are blessed to be on your team! And to Leonor, Misha’s Special Spaces designer, thank you for designing exactly what Misha needed and delivering with grace. Thank you Julie Haener, Mike Mibach, Tony Hodrick, and Christiana Gastelu from KTVU Channel 2 News for your care in bringing Misha’s story with Special Spaces to your Bay Area Viewers.

There are a lot of people who rallied together to make Misha’s haven happen. We would like to thank the whole team and their companies who made this makeover possible. You all are so amazing and generous with your resources and time. Thank you!
