Zoe Foreman is like most other Hoover eight year olds, passionate about school, soccer and playing with her friends. However, after recent unexplained weight loss and numerous headaches, Foreman was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. It is a chronic disease that she will most likely have to manage with medication and injections for the rest of her life.
It was after this recent diagnosis that her family contacted the Kid’s Wish Network, a nonprofit that grants wishes to children with debilitating illnesses. Foreman’s wish was for a bedroom makeover. In her request she said, “My wish is to be surrounded by butterflies, peace symbols ,and the colors pink and purple.”
The Kid’s Wish Network contacted local interior designer Lacey Carroll of Lacey Carroll Interiors. Carroll then reached out to other business partners to make the bedroom dream a reality. Helping make the wish come true were the following local businesses: Jones-Warren Construction (painting and flooring), Uppercase Living (lettering on wall), Bedzzz Express and Royal Bedding, Ideal Furniture, Superior Furnishings, Standard Furniture, Bellacor, Country Curtains, Janify (cleaning), Panoramic Business Solutions, Life Style Organizing Services, Preserve Face & Body, Fusion One Marketing, Two Men And a Truck, ADM Construction and Harry Gulledge.
