Summer 2017 • Designer: Lisa Ball
Roman is a new addition to the Gracie’s Room family. He is 15 years old and lives in the Prior Lake/Shakopee area with his parents, older brother and younger sister. He loves horses, cooking and is taking a keen interest on his new room design with Pinterest boards and rustic/industrial design. Our designer, Lisa Ball is thrilled to be working hand in hand with Roman and coming up with a creative, inspirational room where Roman can relax, read and hang out with his friends/family while he gains strength after recently receiving a new heart.
Roman was born with a congenital heart defect that has required many surgeries and medications to maintain a relatively “normal” life, throughout his lifetime. In the summer of 2017 he developed a few complications which escalated his team of doctors to placing him on the heart transplant list.
Luckily for Roman his wait was brief and he is quickly recovering from a successful new heart transplant and will come home from the hospital later this fall to a new, fabulous room!
Please welcome Roman into our family of supporters and room recipients and keep him in your thoughts for strong and healthy recovery!
