About Special Spaces

Special Spaces, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, creates dream bedrooms for children with cancer.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it can change their world:

  • The activities that they used to enjoy may look and feel different.
  • They may not be able to do the things they really love.
  • They don’t play soccer, ride bikes, go to prom, or attend school.
  • Children with cancer spend a lot of time away from others; time in the hospital, visiting different doctors, receiving painful treatments, feeling tired and nauseous, and oftentimes being isolated.

Special Spaces' goal is to provide these children with a special space where they can not only sleep, relax, and recover, but also play and enjoy just being kids. A custom bedroom designed just for them.

Whether they're dreaming of a princess castle, a butterfly bedroom, a pirate ship, or a sports theme, Special Spaces transforms kids' existing bedrooms into places that only they can imagine. A place for them just to be kids!
