My Happy Haven had the pleasure of traveling to Osage to meet our newest bedroom recipient, Theresa Grein. Theresa was nominated by her sister in law, Deb, who felt after all Theresa has been through, a bedroom facelift would really lift her spirits and give her something positive and exciting to look forward to. Theresa's bedroom Reveal is scheduled for Sun. morning, Feb 11th @ 11am.
"I'm Theresa Grein . I live in Osage with my husband, Larry, and we have 2 sons, Jon and Justin North, and I am extremely excited to be a first-time Grandma in August! I am employed with Casey's General Stores and have been with them for nearly 10 years now.
On July 10, 2017, I was diagnosed with Small Cell Carcinoma cancer, Stage 4. I started my treatment at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. When we decided to get a second opinion, my son researched Cancer Treatment Center of America in Zion, IL, and I have entrusted them with my care ever since. Thank you My Happy Haven for offering me this wonderful opportunity."
DEB CARMODY (sister-in-law who nominated Theresa): "Theresa is not just my sister-in-law, but a great friend. She is very selfless, always putting others needs above her own. Even after getting her cancer diagnosis, she has remained upbeat and is a real inspiration to her family and those around her. I feel she is very deserving of the bedroom makeover. The cancer and affects of chemo has taken its toll on her and she'll be needing to rest more. Being the kind and loving person that she is, I know that this act of kindness has touched her heart more than anyone knows.
