ALTA Good Deeds Foundation Helps Deliver Personalized Bedroom for 7-year-old Cancer Survivor

BedroomA grant from ALTA’s Good Deeds Foundation (AGDF) helped make a new bedroom for a young girl in Massachusetts a reality.

In March, the AGDF awarded a $6,000 grant to Room to Dream Foundation, which is dedicated to helping children with chronic illnesses. The Room to Dream Foundation recently stepped in using the AGDF donation to give Ellie, a 7-year-old cancer survivor, a new personalized bedroom.

For the past two years, Ellie has undergone a treatment plan for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a type of blood and bone cancer. She is now in remission.

The Room to Dream Foundation looks to create healing environments in bedrooms for children facing chronic illnesses. The remodel features two ways for Ellie to get into her bed—either by ladder or a rock wall.

The Room to Dream Foundation was one of 20 organizations that received $6,000 grants from the AGDF. To date, the AGDF has raised nearly $1 million and given $428,000 to 70 organizations.

The Foundation will announce its next round of grants during ALTA ONE, which will be held Oct. 11-14 in San Diego.
