MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – A Rutherford County teenager, now in remission after battling cancer, has been given a bedroom makeover.
The makeover was revealed to 14-year-old Bryson Randolph on Monday. Randolph had been battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, but is now in remission.
He and his parents were on hand for the big reveal at their home in Murfreesboro. Bryson said he loves the Los Angeles Lakers, so the room was decorated in a basketball theme.
"It means a new beginning," said Felicia Randolph. "Even looking at him now with that smile. He deserves it and for him it's everything."
To help with Randolph's recovery process, BrittiCares International and the Alterraun Verner Foundation sponsored the makeover for the teenager's brand new bedroom. The new space will help create hope, happiness and emotional healing for Bryson in the comfort of his own home.
"Thanks to all the people that put in all the work," said Bryson. "I really appreciate this."
Organizers said the goal was to fit Bryson's imagination.
Students in the Academy of Energy and Power at Maplewood are busy getting ready for next week's Project Expo and had the opportunity to show it off some of their projects to Tennessee Congressman Jim Cooper.
