Lorrie Browne Interiors Provides Kids Cancer Foundation Child with Bedroom Makeover

Wellington, FL – August 26, 2013 – Daniella Parra is a 12-year-old girl from Royal Palm Beach, FL who has been battling bone cancer for more than a year.  Parra and her family have endured a long and arduous journey. She has had numerous surgeries and must go for monthly hospital stays for chemotherapy treatments. Despite all she's been through, she is very upbeat, artistic, inquisitive and earns high grades in school.

The Kids Cancer Foundation, a local organization based in Royal Palm Beach that provides hope and support to young cancer patients and their families, had worked with Parra and her family throughout the course of her year-long cancer treatments.  So, when the Kids Cancer Foundation heard that a local interior design firm, Lorrie Browne Interiors, was looking for a child to be the beneficiary of a bedroom makeover, they nominated Parra.

Lorrie Browne and Tim Chance, the owners of Lorrie Browne Interiors in Wellington, are known for their spectacular interior design abilities, but they are also known for enriching the local community by often giving of their hearts, souls and time.  So, when the Kids Cancer Foundation suggested Parra and her family to the Lorrie Browne Interiors team it seemed like a good fit.  

“I have always wanted to create a wonderful bedroom for a child facing a serious illness,” explained Browne. “I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Daniella and her lovely family.”

In May, June and July, Browne and Chance designed and planned a room for Parra. “Daniella is such a bright and beautiful young lady and has been through a lot,” Browne continued. “In August she celebrated her twelfth birthday and her last chemo treatment, so it was a great time for her to receive a new room to enjoy as she moves forward and continues to grow up.” 

Lorrie Browne Interiors donated their design services and funded most of the project.  A number of local and national vendors participated in the effort by either donating or discounting their services to make the bedroom make-over possible.  They included: F. Schumacher Wallcoverings, EJ Schrader Beds, Cassie Kenski Photography, Home Depot, Benjamin Moore/Long Paint of Wellington, API Draper, Inc., Five Star Painting, and Wallpaper by Wendy, Kravet Fabric, RM Coco Fabric,, Alligator Art, Down Inc.,, Vesta Window Hardware, Mark Candreva Contracting and Scott Armand, Armand Professional Services.

Parra accepted her last cancer treatment in the hospital with remarkable courage.  When she returned from her hospital stay, Browne and Chance were on hand to unveil her new bedroom.

“OMG, I cannot believe this is my room!” said Parra when she saw how her room was transformed.

It's the perfect reflection of Parra, a nature lover who loves bright colors and feminine details.  The wall behind her bed features birds and butterflies wallpaper that is complimented by an ethereal blue everywhere else.  Bright touches of pink and blue are complemented by bold black and white accents.  In addition to a luxurious bed with a big down comforter, Browne added a desk where Parra will have plenty of space for artwork and of course schoolwork.The room is rounded out by personalized accessories and family photos.

Thanks to the generosity of Lorrie Browne Interiors and the support and involvement of numerous vendors, Parra has a brand-new bedroom to enjoy as she looks forward toward a bright future.
