HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - An 11-year-old girl recovering from a liver transplant got a brand new room Saturday thanks to a local charity.

Special Spaces Cincinnati is a non-profit organization that designs new bedrooms for children with life-threatening illnesses, based on the child's designs.

11-year-old Cassidy has Biliary Atresia, a disease that affects the liver. Cassidy received a liver transplant at Children's Hospital, and came back to a redesigned room in her Hamilton home.

"I feel so happy for Cassidy," said Jennifer Chamberlin, Director of Special Spaces Cincinnati. "She was just discharged from the hospital yesterday and now she able to go to bed in this brand new room tonight and feel so comfortable and so relaxed and be able to recover in a space that is truly designed for her and a lot of it by her."

Special Spaces says this is the fifth room that they have worked on.
