Welcome Home Angel began with Tyler, an eleven-year-old battling his second bout with leukemia. The project began in 2008 and improvements were made while Tyler was away for medical treatment at Duke. His sister, Kaylee, also received a newly designed and decorated room. Following the completion of treatment, Tyler returned home to a completely revamped room that included a signed Tyler Hansbrough poster, signed jerseys and baseballs, and new television.
