The Heart Project for Natali

Webster, MA

With stage 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Nateli Barjolo faces obstacles no teenager should have to deal with. To celebrate this hero, the greater Webster community banded together to bring one of her dreams to life. As trips to local pools and bodies of water could prove dangerous to her weakened immune system, the teenager wanted nothing more than her own pool and patio. Cedar Wood Realty pitched in, contributing to the cause alongside numerous volunteers to bring this vision to life back in August of 2021. Check out the featured article to learn more about Nateli’s heroic journey.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Springfield, MA

Tragedy can often bring people together, uniting under a common goal. This can be said for the unfortunate passing of 11-year old Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover. Since this tragic event, Sirdearner Walker (his mother) has become a major advocate against bullying. Designers at Extreme Makeover: Home Edition took note of Walker’s powerful story and efforts, and went to work. With a team of over 100 volunteers and a 7-day build period, Walker’s home was overhauled and completely transformed. We are proud to have been a part of this beautiful story, serving alongside other dedicated volunteers.
