MENTOR, Ohio – Dagian and Danielle Lee, or as their mom calls them Peanut and Butter, had a very special shopping trip Wednesday evening.
Sorry, but their 5-year-old sibling nicknamed Jelly had to stay home — after all this was a girls night out.
The twin 4 year olds shopped for a bedroom makeover thanks to The Make-A-Wish Foundation.
According to Krista Kirby Senior Wish Program Manager of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the foundation grants the wishes of children between the ages of 2-and-a-half and 18 years old who have life-threatening medical conditions.
“We hope to bring some hope, strength and joy into their life while they’re going through this very difficult time,” said Kirby.
Conjoined at birth, Dagian and Danielle each are missing a leg from their post-separation surgery and have special needs. A wish to have “a pretty place to play” may not seem like a big wish, but for two children who love to play games and read in the bedroom, it means the world.
Broyhill Furniture is teaming up with Make-A-Wish to grant 50 furniture and room-makeovers across the country over the next year. Levin Furniture will prepare and paint the room and do the delivery and installation of the furniture.
The Cleveland girls made the visit to the Mentor Avenue Levin store in style in a limo. Inside the store their mother Catherine Nickson along with Michael Howard carried the girls room to room letting them try beds, chairs and even try on a few hats.
The final choice wasn’t completely unexpected because little girls’ tastes usually run along the same lines.
“We knew they were probably going to lean toward, as a little girl would at 4 years old, we knew pretty much they were going to lean toward a white bedroom suite, very girlie,” said Marcelle Widmer sales representative for Broyhill and Levin Furniture.
The made over bedroom will be ready in mid-January.
