A new happy place just in time for this family's Christmas.

CBH Homes partners with My Happy Place to makeover a CBH Homeowner’s bedroom while she fights stage 4 cancer.

Boise, Idaho, Dec. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CBH Homes received a request in early December to sponsor a bedroom makeover for a woman diagnosed with cancer and jumped at the opportunity. 

“We love to give back and support the community but this story really struck a chord with us.” said Corey Barton, President/Owner of CBH Homes. 

Bethany Zimmerman, the recipient of the My Happy Place bedroom makeover, received the news that she had esophageal cancer, in a matter of weeks, she was told ‘you have stage 4 metastatic cancer’. On top of that, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2013. With 2 children, a 17 year old son, 7 year old daughter and a wonderful husband, she’s fighting everyday to be there with them. 

"When Bethany was nominated and we heard her story, she had mentioned, ‘this is my fourth CBH home and I love it here’. We knew CBH needed to be involved." Said Sara Adams, President of My Happy Place Treasure Valley. "This program is about bringing a little bit of peace to those suffering. Due to Bethany’s health challenges, completing this room before the holidays was our top priority." 

Bethany had moved to what was their office as she could no longer take the stairs due to her MS and was sleeping on a twin bed with office supplies. My Happy Place came in and gave the room a makeover from paint, flooring, all new furniture including a queen size bed, an electric fireplace, and new family photos they had taken. 

“Everyone deserves a safe, comfortable place to call home,” said Barton, “we hope this brings joy to Bethany and her family and a Christmas to remember in their beautiful new bedroom.”
