Room of Hope – Providing Spaces To Heal

Through my work with Columbia Business Times I recently had the opportunity to work with their sister company, Columbia Home and the Room of Hope. Room of Hope is a project made possible by a partnership between interior designer, Sherry Hockman, Columbia Home Magazine, and University of Missouri Healthcare where Sherry is able to go in and transform a room of a seriously ill patient in the mid-Missouri area.

The first Room of Hope Project I was asked to be a part of was for Jaclyn and her two twin boys this past January. Jaclyn and her boys all suffer from a number of medical issues and I got to see first hand how something as simple as transforming a bedroom can really make a difference! Check out their story:

For the April/May issue of Columbia Home I produced this Room of Hope video telling the story of Brynna Eads. What I found to be so awesome was how the entire community came together to help Sherry Hockman (normally it is Sherry and one or two of her friends helping) as there were over 15 people helping transform Brynna’s room to make it fit for a princess!

I cannot say enough good things about Sherry Hockman and what she does for Room of Hope. As you can see from the videos, it really does make a difference for those selected. Can’t wait to produce the next one!
