BOCA RATON, Fla. -- A brave 8-year-old boy will soon receive a special gift from a local organization.

"Special Spaces Boca Raton" has selected Joshua as its next bedroom makeover recipient.

Joshua Barbenell was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of bone cancer.

Due to the severity of the disease, Joshua's right leg was amputated.

He is known to be a very compassionate young man, more concerned about others than himself.

In November, "Special Spaces" will transform Joshua's bedroom into the bedroom of his dreams.
