Sydni Pecevich (center), 8, has been cancer-free for seven years. Workers are retrofitting her South Boston home for free to accommodate her.
Cancer left Sydni with disabilities including her inability to speak and dependency on a wheelchair and feeding tube.
Personal care assistant Lynette Perry carried Sydni into her family’s home, which does not have a disabled ramp.
Cathy Jerome reads her daughter a book Sydni received for her birthday at their South Boston home.
