Review for Room for Joy, Mesa, AZ, USA
I was lucky enough to be chosen by Tory when I was 17, I had been sick with Ulcerative colitis since I was 9 years old, and had made a decision to have major surgery To remove my colon at 17. This was one of the hardest times of my life, things were pretty dark and then I met Tory and the room for joy team. They not only redid my entire room, they sent my family away for the weekend and I’ll never forget that time we had. At 23 now, everytime I think about what was done for me I’m overcome with gratitude and hope that there amazing people out there like room for joy. I went from spending 9 years sick in my room, a place with bad memories and that I didn’t want to return to after coming home from the hospital, to starting over fresh and new with a new space of my own, created by room for joy. The world is a better place because of room for joy, with one person they help at a time.
