About A Room To Heal

The Founding of A Room To Heal
Helping Children Smile, One Room At A Time

A Room to Heal is the "brain child' of two local mothers who wanted to make a difference in the Binghamton, NY area. One of the mothers learned first-hand what it means to have a seriously ill child when her son was diagnosed with leukemia. Thanks to a life-saving bone marrow transplant, her son is now leading a healthy, normal life. But both women felt passionate about the need for children to have a calming, peaceful and uplifting environment in order to heal. Their passion led them to create this organization to help families and the children who are suffering from critical illness. In 2006, A Room to Heal became incorporated and obtained its 501(c)3 non-profit status. It is run completely by volunteers and funded by donations, sponsors and fundraising events.
