After spending 53 straight days in the hospital with their son, Brett and Alicia Raskey came home to find a surprise makeover on their home in Surprise, Arizona. Their neighbor, David Margau, lives across the street and wanted to lift the family’s spirits as they were dealing with their five-year-old son’s brain tumor.
The Raskeys love to barbecue and entertain by their backyard pool, so Margau spearheaded the project, which includes sprucing up the front and back yards, landscaping, a fire pit, and a brick island with a grill. And thanks to friends, neighbors, and 12 local businesses that donated time and materials, it was waiting for them when they returned home.
“We were touched to the deepest level,” Raskey says. “You feel so grateful and humbled knowing we have that support, and friends and family around us to help us through this tough time.”
