Jasmine gets a BIG surprise!
Jasmine, a nine year old from Sanford, FL and diagnosed
with Sickle-Cell disease, came home to find a Dream Come
True! She dreamed of a brand new bedroom, and she got it!
The Batchelor Foundation out of Miami sponsored this dream
of a new bed, dresser, night stand and TV! Our friends at
T.J.Maxx also wanted to help enhance Jamine's dream.
Employees from the stores througout Central Florida brought
bedding, curtains, decor and artwork to transform her
bedroom into a beautiful place for Jasmine to play and watch
her favorite TV shows and movies! A special thank you to
Wesh 2 News (NBC) and WKMG Local 6 News (CBS) for coming out
to cover this surprise makeover! When asked what she thought
of her new bedroom, Jasmine said she "had never felt like
this before, so happy!"

little while! Sam's precious smile will remain in our hearts
forever. Our thoughts are with his family during this
