But with TV host Nick and the team’s efforts, their home was redesigned with newly furnished rooms and more space for the girls’ dialysis machines so they could receive treatment at home.

Nick also recruited the help of Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen from television who was on hand to provide design expertise for the home renovation.
