A 6-year-old cancer survivor got a big surprise when his newly made-over room was revealed. 

Six-year-old Haakyn, a big Vikings fan, had his room specially decorated just for him after finishing radiation treatment and having a tumor removed from one of his kidneys.


The project was helped out by Special Spaces, a volunteer organization that creates dream bedrooms for children with cancer at no cost to the families. 

Watch the video above for the full story.
