  3. Jamal Jackson says:

    Hey Wassup? My Name is Jamal Jackson and I'm from Dallas Tx. My grandmother has been staying in her home for over 40 years where she raised all of her 10 kids and it has been a rough time for us. About 20 years ago the house caught on fire in the middle of the night due to a overheated plug. During this situation my grandfather (65 years old) was trying save everybody that he could. Once he got everybody out the house my cousin Preston was still in the house when my grandfather realized that he was in there he went back in to save him. Preston was a special kid and was afraid of the fire so he did not leave because of his fear which made my grandfather stay in there with him. After this terrible situation my grandmother was left to keep hold of her 10 kids and of over 50 of her Grandchildren. I also have an Uncle who had an stroke several years ago. In the matter of this his wife left him and took him to my grandmother (82 years old) house to stay. And as hard as it is for the family rite now, I hate to see them leaving in a house where the plumbing is completely ruined! There roaches everywhere! No air conditioning! & and many other problems to add on to house. Please help me out and my family and turn this house around!

  6. Nicole Roberts says:

    My name is Nicole Roberts I live in Phoenix,Arizona and I'm only 16 years old. I live with my dad,mom,and older brother and our house is horrible. I have never had a friend over because my house is so old that everything inside is literally falling apart and no matter how hard I try to clean, it still cant look good. My dad cant afford to fix up the house at all, neither can my mom since shes a brain injury survivor who barely has any money at all. We live in shame because of our house and we don't let anyone in ever. Its clean, but its just way too old and damaged. Everything breaks and the tile floors are coming up. There is way more to this house trust me. PLEASE HELP US. My mom and dad would really love this.

  7. Mary Vance says:

    Hello! I would like to nominate my sister and niece for an extreme homemaker. My sister is the music teacher at Hayti Elementary and High School. She spends the majority of her time doing good things for others. She bakes cakes for extra income and has given piano lessons after school. My niece lives with her Mom while trying to achieve her RN license. My sister Rebecca and niece Alison live in a 1930's style home. It is literally falling down around them. The roof leaks in around the chimney.(Which doesn't work). There is no heat source except two electric heaters. The bathroom is leaning so badly that the toilet water is at a slant. She has a hole in the hallway and master bedroom ceiling where a waterfall come through this winter as a result of extreme cold the water pipes burst. My sister does not like to stay at home because it stresses her out so badly. I have seen the wonderful ways you have helped others in desperate need. My sister is loved dearly by her students, staff, friends, church family, and especially her family. Please help my sister!

  12. Joetta says:

    My husband and I met in 2nd grade. Can't believe that one day he would be my husband…..I am now 43, my husband and I purchased our first home. We were aware that it needed a lot of work but were up to the challenge. Shortly after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Needless to say all projects on our home were stopped. After 3 rounds of chemo and 3 surgeries I am now diagnosed with brain damage or what they think is Parkinson's Disease. Different doctors have different opinions. We are a one family income because I do not have the ability to work. At one point we almost lost our house. We have a leak in the garage that has caused mold. The work this house needs is far too much to list. Through all my treatment my husband has been incredible. My son is now a United States Marine and was the only one that could help him. I really would love to show my husband how much I love and appreciate all that he has done for me. He is the greatest man I've ever known. Thank you for your consideration.

  15. Brittney says:

    Hey Ty and crew,

    My name is Brittney, I'm 21 years old, engaged and a stay at home mom to a ten month old little boy. We live with my dad and his house is in need of help in a bad way. He works 60+ hours a week and never has the extra money for the things he needs. The floor in our kitchen is gone and is just wood that's starting to go. There's soft spots all over the floors and I'm worried one day my dad is going to go through one of them due to him not being a little guy. All our bedroom doors have holes in them and the door frames are wasted. We have no heat or a/c so our winters are freezing and our summers are horribly hot. My dad being the great guy that he is has given up the master bedrooms in the house. My fiancée, son and I share one of them and my brother who doesn't even live here anymore has the other one. He comes and stays but not often. My dad has the smallest room in the house and doesn't have room for anything. Our spare bedroom is full of all the stuff we can't fit in our rooms due to the sizes of them. Our house is falling apart slowly but surely and we can't get the money to fix it. Just when we think we have enough to do one thing something comes up. My dad ended up in the hospital in December with gallstones and had to have his gallbladder removed. He's diabetic and overweight, so his health isn't the best but he still tries and does what he can. So if you could help us it'd be a blessing.

  16. Katherine Donovan says:

    My name Katherine Donovan and I am asking for help for my parents. My mom is unable to work ad my dad is a disabled vet who was in Iraq. the outside of the house has asbestos and it is to small for me to take care of them and my two year old son. please if you can help the would be great. thanks for considering my family.

  17. Rachel Johnson says:

    I would like to nominate my parents, Raleigh and Deb Johnson. All my life my parents have gone above and beyond for myself and others, even when they did not necessarily have the means themselves. My dad has had diabetes for as long as I can remember. He began to develop complications just over ten years ago. It began with vascular issues leading to necrotic vessels and ultimately the amputation of both legs below the knee. His kidneys also became non-functional requiring him to go to dialysis three times a week. At the epicenter of the decline of his health and increase of medical bills my parents lost their dream home. Thankfully my mother had a rental property they could fall back on, they have lived there for over five years. However,the 1970's house trailer is in need of complete overhaul, we have patched the roof and made repairs to the floors and tried to make it as handicap accessible as possible. My mother has been doing what she can here and there for work, but primarily cares for my father and elderly grandparents. In addition, my parents have also become my 16-year-old nephews legal guardian. There is so much I want and wish I could do for all the things my parents have done for me. To have the help of Extreme House Makeover would be one of the greatest blessings. Thank you for taking time to read our story and consider us.

  18. Agatha Thiessen says:

    Hi, my name is Agatha.
    I started to write a long paragraph explaining why my mother should be on the show this year, but honestly, I just want her to have the house she has always dreamt if having….she works 13 hour days to support my 3 younger siblings, and I know she will never be able to afford to do all the things she wants to do to her house.
    There's so much more detail to the story, but it would take a while to type it all.
    Anyways, I hope you consider her.
    Thank you for your time.

  19. Angela Wise says:

    This is very difficult for me to do. I am writing asking help for my brother who is suffering from Severe MS. He lives in a trailer in Knoxville, Tennesse. Randy has been in and out of nursing homes for the last two years, now the next time he might have to stay because his home is not handicap accessible. While he was in a nursing home someone broke in and stole almost everything he had. His heating and cooling unit was taken his dog that are his world ran away and he came back from a nursing home to find this. Randy also is a veteran, and because he did not serve during a war he is unable to live at a VA. he is also on 54 years of age. I am asking for help to make what time he has left enjoyable, he would love to be able to do for himself like he use to. He is a awesome person with one neighbor that has helped fix meals and make sure he is ok. His trailer need a new floor, new kitchen so he can work in it from a wheelchair. maybe a new bedroom that he could get to and transfer to his bed by himself easier. I live in Michigan and my heart aches that I can not be there to help and support him. We are adopted and have lost our parents years ago and now have each other. I have been blessed with a awesome husband and daughters and now a son-in-law. I am going in late August to see what I might be able to fix but I would love to see him receive help. He has two dogs and two cats that mean more than life to him and is what has given him the strength to go home from the nursing homes. We are hoping this touches you heart and maybe you can help.

    Thank you for reading

  21. Jennifer Madeira says:

    Hi my name is Jennifer and I am 24 years old. When I was 13 years old my family became a foster family and we have had fosters kids since then, up until 2009 when we made the decision to adopt three children. The oldest was a 10 year old boy, then a 5yr old girl, and the youngest of the three siblings a toddler who we took in right from the hospital. This now made us a family of 9! I am the oldest, I have an 18 and 17 year old sister as well and a 22 years old brother. Years ago my dad was let go from his job due to new management and the fact that he made too much money. Since then he has struggled to find a good job that pays him enough to provide for such a large family and our home. The job loss was very unexpected and we were not prepared for this. It was been a great hardship and has taken its toll on the entire family and my father feels like a failure. I have never met a more hardworking caring man in my life; he had always been here and has always done whatever he could for us. He is an amazing father and I wish I could help him. As the years went my parents grew apart until they finally split last September. My mom moved out and took the youngest two. Mary and Kayden (the youngest 2) are still here majority of the week because we babysit them and they stay here every other weekend. We do not even have enough bedrooms in the house either. Mary stays in my one sister’s room when she is here and Kayden stays in my one brother’s room. Mary is now 10yrs old and had had many issues that we began to notice when she first came to live with us. She had been to many doctors, therapists, and neurologists and we can’t seem to get an exact diagnosis. She has been diagnosed as being mentally retarded, she has ADHD, she PTSD. She also had a disorder called Landau-Kleffner Syndrome which causes her to have seizures, and she has great difficulty understanding and using our spoken language. This can be sudden and gradual; can last for a few weeks to months. There can be progress and relapses as well and there is no cure for this disorder. She has to be in special classes and has to have a therapist come to our home every week. She sees a total of three therapists each week and has to take medication multiple times a day. Our mother has really been a close part of our lives and has never really had a great or close relationship with any of us. Myself, my boyfriend, my two brothers, and two sisters still live in our 20yr old house with my father. Due to the struggle over the years and my mom leaving us we have fallen far behind in our mortgage and have not been able to keep up with the maintenance of the home. On top of that myself and my oldest brother are both in college and we have loans that we need to pay back and that have also affected our financial situation. We have been to the point where we just about had to file bankruptcy and foreclose our home. We are in desperate need of help with our home so that we are able to stay here and not have to move. This is such a great home and just needs some time and work. We have so many memories here and have grown up here. It's an amazing house with so much potential in a great area. We would absolutely be devastated to have to give the home back to the bank. We cannot afford a new home especially one big enough for all of us. We would all greatly appreciate being considered for this show and to be helped. For years and years it just seems like its always one thing after another and we cannot catch a break. We have been put through the ringer as a family and just need to start getting things back on track and back to normal. At this point we are praying for a miracle!!! Thank you.
    The house needs: A new roof, new windows, new shutters, new light fixtures, it has original bathroom fixtures, and has original carpets, the basements flooded and has never been redone, there is a slab of cement off the back room where we were going to make an addition before everything happened, basically the entire interior of the home needs a remodel and to be updated.

  22. Joe Looper says:

    I am contacting you on behalf of my wife's brother and his wife. He is in his mid seventies. His wife is mid sixty. Both have continuing health issues and very limited income, They are unable to work and live on his ss disability income. The house they occupy is a fifty something year old single wide trailer home. It has so many issue it is almost uninhabitable. He is very proud and tries to keep the place presentable. The kitchen cabinets are falling apart. the bathroom toilet has the flooring almost gone. They take care of two small grand kids while the parents work in the local fruit industry. At this point there is little or no possibility for improvement in gthe situation. We live in a primarily low income area of fruit growing land in Douglas County Washington between two small agriculture orentiated towns. Any consideration would be a god sent gift never to be forgoten.

  23. Gabrielle says:

    My grandmother is 64 and for the second time has lost a husband she now takes care of my baby cousins my nieces and nephews. She is such a loving strong women she always has open arms and doors to my family anyone in need she is the first in line to help. I believe a bigger home for her and the family would've great she deserves that much.

I grew up with a family of 13 siblings. 9 girls and 4 boys, we are not blood siblings but that does not make it any different from the love we have for each other. My dad is currently retired from the army and has raised us all on his only paycheck. He was suppose to retire out in Hawaii but when he got the news from our family in utah of my grandma passing, away, he was brought to tears and he needed to come back to utah. When we got to utah my uncle (father brother) told my father he can no longer take care of my grandma house. My father bought this house for my grandparents and siblings back in the 70's when he brought em to America. This house has had all of his 15siblings and kids living under this roof. With this house it had alot of memories of us family. We've been trying to fix this house up so many times but it always has another problem. With this house it has been refinanced so many times by greedy people who ran with the money and left my dad to fix himself with the little money he has. I remembered the first time we moved back to the house, we had to clean the basement and had so many beer bottles with urine inside, I could not let my father clean alone due to his heart problem so me and my siblings all helped him clean it. We also had to fix the roof and no one came to help but me and my siblings with my father because we could nt afford for someone else to do it. My dad has been having lots of heart problems. The first time he had a heart attack was when he was in training fir the army jumping out a helicopter and then another due to all the stress. My mother is also diabetic and has bad asthma. With my father he has the most biggest heart that it can barely fit in his chest. He is always willing to give and help with what little we have. Sometimes I would get really mad at him because we are struggling with house and he does not make em pay for the services he gives but yet always tells us "count your blessings for the lord is watching and he will give for those who serve in his name". So please help my father and my family.

    Hi I am 44 year old father of three, grandfather of two. I have been disabled due to diabetes, arthritis, coronary artery disease, and heart attacks. I was a volunteer fire fighter in the community where I live and one night after being called to a wild land fire, I suffered my second heart attack. I went to the hospital to be told I would have to have a 6 way bypass. During the surgery I suffered complications which resulted in the loss of my left leg above the knee. The diabetes caused slow healing of some open wounds that kept me from getting my leg right away, but I was eager to walk, so when I finally got the leg, I immediately started therapy to learn to walk again. About mid way through the therapy I suffered another heart attack. Two of the vessels that were bypassed did not take. I was told to hold off on the therapy until I could get the surgery needed to open the vessels. The surgery was successful but during recovery I had a muscle spasm that caused me to move which dislodged the clot in the vein they went into and it caused a hematoma. Now I am waiting for that to disperse so I can try walking again. I live in a 14×80 singlewide mobile home that I can walk up to wall and almost poke my finger through to the outside. I have several holes in the floor, and I cant get to one bedroom and bathroom because the doorways are too small. My bathroom was somewhat remodeled to make it accessible, but I have no privacy except the bedroom door. I could use help to fix the holes, insulate the walls, and make it more handicap accessible. I thank you for your consideration. David Flynn of Flippin Arkansas

    Hi my name is Kimberly. I want to tell you about my little family. I'm a mother to a 1 year old and a 2 month old. I have an amazing husband who has to stay home to watch the babies so I could work. We were in the moore oklahoma tornado last year (it hit my job the first day I had came back to work after having my son) and so I was car less and my lease ended at my apartment. So my husband's grandfather had let us rent a house. It was completely trashed when we got here. We cleaned it up and tried to paint to make it look decent. But we only have 1 small room. So we have to all fit in our room. We don't have a closet so we keep our clothes in several baskets. WE don't have gas in the house so we have to drive to my mother in laws house to shower. I work very hard to keep this house livable, however it's getting hard for us since we have 2 babies and just 1 small room. I try to help feed people in need and clothe them with every extra clothes I know I would never wear and with food I buy because it's on sale but wouldn't eat it. I just want to be able to feel safe with my 1 year old running around in the house and not have to worry about him getting hurt. Our flooring is only 1/2 done. I don't have a stove or oven. We have to use a toaster oven.We don't have all our windows so we have to put boards over them. And with only having me work we can't afford to buy such a big house. I would greatly appreciate any help. Please consider us. I really do feel that my family has been put through our hard times to get to better times. And I'm praying that it would be soon. Thank you
