One local not-for profit organization is helping to change the life of a very deserving young woman.
Kaliann Brill is an intelligent and extremely positive 20-year-old. Recently, she took a break from her college schooling to focus on her health.
She has a rare genetic blood disorder and spends between eight and 12 hours a day on dialysis in her bedroom at home.
The Binghamton based non-profit organization, A Room To Heal, heard Kaliann’s story and chose her room for a makeover.
The once dark, cluttered and dreary bedroom is now a Harry Potter themed library with a twist of sophistication.
“I was just really excited because I’ve had the same room for so long and it was just so packed. I spend a lot of time in my room with my medical things, so it was just nice having a more positive and nice space to hang out and stuff,” Kaliann Brill said.
Kaliann’s favorite part of her new space is her new bed with a built in sliding desk. The project took about two weeks to complete and the cost was completely covered by the non-profit.
