FORT WORTH, Texas. -- A United States Marine is working to bring smiles to the faces of sick children and he's doing it one decorated room at a time.

Brielle Perry was born with Down syndrome and a heart defect. At 18 months old her parents learned she had leukemia. Chemo stole her pigtails and burned her face. Her family documented it all, posting videos of her fight online.

That's how generous strangers found her.

"We're put on this planet for a certain amount of time," Joshua Jones, Marine, said. "If we just take, take, take and we never give back, then we don't leave anything for other people to have."

Jones is based in Fort Worth, Texas. And he's started "Sunshine Spaces ... Room for Hope." Their mission is to decorate rooms for children who are sick.

Sunshine Spaces has raised 70 percent of its $5,000 goal. Those who would like to contribute can do by visiting room-for-hope.com.
