Meet Grant, our fifth bedroom transformation recipient! Grant is a 13-year-old boy from Georgetown, South Carolina. Grant recently came down with a cough, and he was sent to the Medical University of South Carolina after doctors found a mass in his chest. Grant was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoma on August 31, 2015. He will be undergoing treatment for the next two-and-a-half years; the first six months being the most rigorous. Grant is unable to leave the hospital (whenever he has a fever) until his counts are high enough to fight infections on his own. He has been in and out of the hospital frequently due to a persistent cold.
Grant loves to hunt, fish, and play golf. As a result of his treatment, he will not have the energy to do the things he loves – such as go outside and hang out with friends. Grant’s family and friends describe him as having an awesome sense of humor. Since his diagnosis, he has been a source of strength for his family. Grant is extremely driven in school, having been on the honor roll since third grade! Every day his attitude is awesome, and his faith is strong.
The Designing Dreams team enjoyed working with Grant and his family in January of 2016. Over the next couple of years, Grant will be spending a lot of time in his room. We were so excited to give him a space to escape to! #TeamGrant
