Poppy (5) from Wicklow is living with acute flaccid myelitis and wished to have her own disco-themed bedroom. Her bedroom makeover was specially designed to transform her environment to look less medical and more like a sanctuary for Poppy to move around in her wheelchair, enjoying her toys, music and lighting.

Poppy’s Mum, Jennifer told us, “We are honoured to be the 2,500th Make-A-Wish recipient and it means the world to us. The look of sheer delight on Poppy’s face says it all, Poppy adores her new look bedroom. When you’re living through an illness, you’re not thinking about whether a bedroom looks pretty, however now that I see the finished results, I know that Poppy now has an amazing space for her to call her own. The room is full of her favourite colours, positive vibes and imagination. We know that Poppy’s carers will love it too.”

This wish was made possible thanks to the generous support of Irish Murals, The Wardrobe Man, Forbo Flooring Systems, Kilcoole Flooring, EAST COAST Upholstery, Broomhall Estates, Meridian Media and Aerial.ie
