After spending almost a year in Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), Bradley Caraker was able to return home to see his newly renovated house which had been given a "make-over" with the help of many volunteers throughout his New Jersey community. Bradley's love of the ocean and memories of vacations with his family at the shore was the inspiration for this nautical mural in his and his brother Billy's bedroom. Tragically, Bradley lost his fight with Leukemia and succumbed to the disease only a few days after returning home in June of 2006. Though these were his last days, his family said that he was happy to be home, and they were happy to see his face light up with smiles as he marveled at the freshly painted walls around his bedroom.
