Portland, OR, July 29, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Portland-based flooring company Macadam Floor and Design recently donated materials to the Make A Wish Foundation. The materials, which included luxury vinyl plank and a staircase of carpet material, helped to fulfill a young cancer survivor’s wish for a “Kid Kave.”
The donation to Make A Wish Oregon helped to successfully transform one family’s home basement into a recreational “Kid Kave” for 15 year old Will, who battled osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer, for five years. Macadam Floor and Design promptly became involved in the “Kid Kave” project after Make A Wish Foundation contacted them for supplies, ultimately donating about 1000 square feet of flooring. Other companies who contributed to the completion of the “Kid Kave” include Glidden Paint, IKEA, and F.P. Crew.
Anthony Ivelia, owner at Macadam Floor and Design, stated, “I received a call from Make A Wish Foundation, asking if we were willing to help them complete a special project. Several months later, I was able to look at the job site as well as meet Will and his family. I’m proud that we were able to assist Make A Wish in granting this brave young man his Kid Kave. It’s great to hear that he got his wish and that he’s very happy with the results.”
The “Kid Kave,” a home recreational space for Will and his friends, includes the new flooring Portland-based Macadam Floor and Design donated to the project. The “Kid Kave” also has a new TV and reclining chairs, an Xbox, a pinball machine, a dartboard, and custom Boston Red Sox and Seahawks artwork to adorn the walls and add a personal touch.
Recently declared cancer-free by doctors after nine months of chemotherapy and surgery, Will and his family now consider the fulfilled wish a “victory celebration.”
