Make-A-Wish: Trevor’s Dream Game Room!

Make-A-Wish: Trevor’s Dream Game Room!

A few months ago, The Sound Room was approached by Make-A-Wish to help create a dream game room for Trevor. Trevor was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as a baby. His family had little knowledge about the disease, and as a family, they have been doing everything they can to learn, understand and deal with the disease. Since a young age, Trevor has been hospitalized multiple times due to complications from the disease. He also has to complete 2 hours of breathing treatments each day just to stay healthy. Trevor doesn’t let any of this get in his way of being a young, active boy. He makes time for what he loves, including playing sports and spending time with friends. Trevor’s says that even thought he has this disease, he should be treated the same way as everyone else. He is a brave kid who isn’t going to let anyone, or anything, get him down. It was Trevor’s wish to have a game room in his basement to relax and hang out with his friends. Make-A-Wish teamed up with The Sound Room to help create the ultimate personalized game room, just in time for Trevor’s 16th birthday! It was a race around the clock to get this project completed in time, but seeing the smile on Trevor’s face made it worth it. Trevor, his little sister Macy and his friends now have a complete gaming experience right in their home, with booming sound from the Sony HTXT1 Soundbar, and they can easily control all the electronics in the basement with a URC MX-780 Universal Remote Control. Trevor is a huge...
