A young woman fighting cancer, gets a new room that's built to heal.

Allyson Klein was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments.

But she now has a sanctuary where she can relax and feel better.

It's all thanks to A Room to Heal.

The non-profit organization outfitted the room with posters of her favorite bands, new furniture, a TV, a laptop.

Volunteers say after 6 weeks of planning, and a weekend of putting it all together. .

It was all worth it.

"It's super fun. It's extremely rewarding. It's fun to get together with all of the group, plan everything, buy everything. And then to put it all together it's crazy, but it's a ton of fun and the results are awesome," says Angela Kehoe, Interior Designer.

"Judging by her reaction, it was very very successful. I think she was very nervous walking into the room, she didn't know what to expect, but as her Aunt said, we really captured her, so that made us feel great," says Wend Neuberger from A Room to Heal.

For the past 4 years.. Room to Heal has lifted the spirits of children in the Southern Tier...who are fighting serious medical conditions, by turning their bedrooms into a healing haven.
