Updated teen cancer room at Kosair Children's opens

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - There are not many things that can make you feel much better than ice cream. So my friends at Grater's were kind enough to join me Sept. 26 for a sundae party for the kids and staff at Kosair on floor 7 as I put the finishing touch on the teen cancer room in my efforts to spruce it up a bit.

It is the room where teens can go to hang out when they are stuck on the floor for days, sometimes weeks at a time.

With help from family and friends, we were able to give it a whole new look that we will unveil Thursday on WAVE 3.

Taryn Scampoli, a childlife therapist at Kosair Children's Hospital, said she has heard great feedback already and thinks the kids love the room.
