Volunteers give bedroom makeover to Norfolk teen fighting cancer


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Volunteers with the Roc Solid Foundation and Gwaltney Foods gifted a teen who is fighting a form of kidney cancer with a bedroom makeover on Saturday.

13-year-old Destanie Lawson and her family went out on the town for the day while 30 volunteers transformed her room at home. 

When Lawson and her family returned, they found her room painted a bright teal with inspirational messages and beautiful decorations throughout.

“It takes a village to make this all happen and everybody works together and it’s for one cause, for this family to give them a day out to forget about their treatment and their diagnosis and love serve and care on them,” said Bryan Sellitti who volunteered.
