Gorgeous Grace Cantrell was diagnosed with a very rare type of heart failure-restrictive cardiomyopathy shortly after her third birthday. After spending almost an entire year on the transplant list, Grace finally received her new heart on her fourth birthday, which was shortly after the New Year.
Grace now has a long road ahead of her in terms of physical and occupational therapy. To protect her immune system, Grace will also have limited exposure to people throughout this year. Enter Sunshine on a Ranney Day, an Atlanta based organization that Mohawk has partnered with this year, which provides room and home makeovers to children in need. After assessing Grace’s needs, Sunshine on a Ranney Day decided to transform Grace’s bedroom and her basement, turning the basement space into a classroom and a therapy suite to provide for all of her educational and therapeutic needs.
Mohawk was honored to provide the carpet for Grace’s room makeover. Our Dramatic Flair SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet in City Loft is the perfect foundation for Grace’s new therapy suite. As the toughest, easiest to clean carpet on the planet, our SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet is also super soft, which will help cushion Grace during playtime and occupational therapy.
On April 14, 2015, Grace and her family moved back into her new home. Here are some before and after images of the entire makeover.
We wish Grace a continued recovery! You can leave well wishes and messages of encouragement for Grace in our comment section.
