A big thank you to all that have supported and cared for us at RoomsThatRock4Chemo. Each one of you makes an amazing difference and together we will create lovely, soothing and hopeful chemotherapy rooms everywhere including our 2012 Sponsors, Serenity MedSpa, Home Depot/Philadelphia, The Beverly Fund, The SkyFactory, DaliDecals and Cutting Edge Stencils. We are grateful for all the help, support and encouragment we have received this year, and look forward to a new year where at least 8 x 8 facilities will be turned into rooms that rock 4 chemo.

As Susan G Komen told her sister Nan, “Something has to be done with these rooms!”

We agree!

Wishing you and yours a Happy, Hopeful, Warm and Healthy Holiday Season and New Year!

Nancy Ballard
