The Flyers Wives charity group, in conjunction with the support group Michael's Way, is brightening the lives of Jose Toledo and his family during the holiday season.
Toledo, 17, an 11th grader at Community Academy of Philadelphia, is battling brain cancer, and he soon will undergo trial therapy at a Maryland hospital.
Chris McElwee, founder of Michael's Way, announced Monday that the Toledos were selected to have a "mini-makeover" of their Northeast Philadelphia home. The teen's bedroom and the family's kitchen will be redone.
"They could use a lift like this," McElwee said.
Fort Washington-based Michael's Way supports families of children with cancer.
