SKIATOOK, Okla. — A room full of his favorites.

On Thursday, "Rooms With a Heart" surprised Grady with a bedroom makeover.

Grady, who is 14, was born with Prune Belly Syndrome and uses a power chair to get around.

His family tells us that he wasn't able to use his chair in his Skiatook home because the doorways were too narrow.

His dad says the makeover will now give Grady some new independence.

"His reaction was priceless," dad Ty Harper said. "He's never had a room that was fit just for him. Of course, he was surprised and excited, and I think he's going to be real happy with it."

Rooms With a Heart is a nonprofit that helps customize rooms for children with critical illnesses in the Tulsa area.
