Sanitaria Springs, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Two brothers with a terminal illness got a gift on Sunday to help them heal.

Kalen Kulas and Kyan Kulas are just three and two years old, but suffer from Spinal Muscular Atrophy. The illness affects their mobility and has no proven treatment.

Despite this, the two brothers are always smiling. On Sunday, their smiles grew bigger as nonprofit organization A Room to Heal re-did their entire bedroom.

They painted, gave them new bedding, and an art space. The makeover would not have been complete without lots of toys.

"They're so happy and so excited and it makes such a big difference," said volunteer Michael Grasso. "It just lights up my week."

A Room to Heal has touched 50 families in Broome County, giving sick children a place to play, relax, and enjoy each day.

"I'm blown away by everything they did in such a short period of time and out of the goodness of their heart," said Sierra Kulas, the boy's mother.

A Room to Heal even put in a set of parallel bars to help the boys with physical therapy.
