Our friend and neighbor Gabrielle has struggled with health issues her entire life. She is a selfless, cheerful, and kind young lady who has dealt with so much more than most teens. Help us SURPRISE her with a bedroom redesign for her 17th birthday! More ...

Our neighbor on Katherine Place, Gabrielle, has significant health challenges. She's been on a feeding tube for most of her life, and has had several surgeries to various parts of her digestive system. Doctors are kind of stumped on how to help her. The Donovans are currently waiting for an appointment at a children's hospital in Philly to see what else can be done. They are regularly at Hopkins and have been to Children's Hospital in Boston for consultations as well. 

Gabrielle is turning 17 on December 10, and several of the neighbors on Katherine Place are pooling funds to have our fellow neighbor Vickie Williams redecorate Gabrielle's bedroom. Vickie owns a home redesign company (Vickie's House to Home). The money we collect will be used to purchase furniture and decor items. Vickie and her staff will then volunteer their time to complete the redesign while Gabrielle is out of the house in early December, and we will surprise her with a big reveal on December 9 or 10! Any leftover funds after all the materials are purchased will be given to Gabrielle and her family to be used for a special treat of her choice (movies, shopping, etc.). Our goal for this project is $500 -- we really want to get her a headboard for her bed (she has never had one), a new chair for her night nurse, and maybe a lamp or some new bedding.

Please consider making a donation to this project. Help us bring some joy to a very special girl who has dealt with way more than her fair share of challenges so far. Thanks!
