Jennifer Likness, 28, right, talks with one of her respiratory therapists as she receives a breathing treatment while visiting with her mom last week at the Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida. Likness has cystic fibrosis, a typically pediatric disease, and has been on a list for a double lung transplant for the past two and half years. After spending two to four weeks at a time since 1995 in the General Pediatric Wing of the Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida, she decided the hospital rooms needed a facelift to improve morale of patients. She started a fund called Jenn's Kids to help raise money for renovations. Lexey Swall/Staff
