  1. Kammy McKenna says:

    Hi, I am a freelance artist who just moved from the hustle and bustle of LA to my hometown in southern Illinois. I was shocked to see that a major monument to my childhood has fallen into despair. Our art deco single screen theater is falling apart and no one seems to know how to save it. It opened in 1941 and many of us would do anything to save it! It sold for auction in 2004 but was found to have extensive mold, so it has been left to sit. If you could use our theater as an episode or even a short series, our entire town would be forever grateful!

  7. Kristine moore says:

    I'm hoping that you might be able to help. My fiancée russell lehr was in a tragic diving accident while we were out on a hot day in July of 2014 with our children. The accident left him a Tetraplegic which means he can not feel or move anything from chest down. It has been incredibly rough. He had no health insurance and we are in the process of fighting to get him disability. He was in a trauma unit from July 2 till the first week in August then was transferred to Magee rehab in philadelphia. He was recently released to come home but was only here with us a few short days and is back in the hospital battling pneumonia. The hardest thing is about half a year before the accident he bought a home in as needed condition. Basically a fixer upper. It was abandoned and had leaks in pipes. Leaks in the roof, termite damage and the list goes on. He was starting on all this when the accident happened. Now on top of the house needing repairs we also need modifications done to it to accommodate him. Ramps, bathroom remodeled, lifts and it's hard because we don't have the money to do it. I have a 10 year old daughter and Russ has a 14 year old daughter and a 5 year old son. I'm trying to work just to get some of our utilities turned on. Almost everything was shut off because they couldn't be paid for. I hate to ask for anyone's help but this family truly needs it. I'm trying so hard to make things as normal as possible for this family but really need all the help I can get. We would forever be in your debt with anything that you could help with. Even if it were to just get our story out there then that would mean the world to me. I don't know how much time we will even have left with Russ but all I know is that I want to give him the happiest life possible. If you are interested in helping any way I can be reached. My name is Kristine Moore. Thank you for taking the time to hear my story and why this family could benefit from your shows help.

  11. The Tensfeld-Ruska Family says:

    As you noticed, there are two family names. It started with Cheryl Tensfeld, and Clyde Ruska, my dad. As long as he can remember, it has been a long road for him and his fiancee. Always moving from place to place to be with and help family members. There were times when they lived with no electricity or running water, but they still put others before themselves. About 2010, while living in Arizona, they found themselves again, Cheryl, her daughter Sara, and my dad, homeless while helping a cousin. May 18th, 2010 Cheryl was diagnosed with a massive blood clot in her left leg. Sara was told to find relatives to live with, because the doctors did not think Cheryl was going to make it through the night. They moved to Washington, and Cheryl was diagnosed with yet another blood clot in October. The home they moved into was left vacant for five years, yet there was something still missing. I, Jonathan Ruska, haven't seen my dad, Clyde, in over ten years. After I graduated high school in Colorado, we were finally reunited, and our home was complete.The following problems with our home are: 1) the roof leaks in three different rooms. 2) the furnace has not worked for two years, thus making us use multiple space heaters. Which in turn overload the electrical panel. Meaning if we need to do laundry, we must turn off the heaters. 3) Everytime we need to wash dishes or take a shower, we must go to the basement and reset the water heater. 4)The roof and floor to the back porch are rotting due to leakage. 5) It's a daily struggle to save what we know can be a beautiful home. Three of the four are disabled, thus making it a financial struggle to keep our home running. By watching your show, we have seen the miracles you guys perform. We are writing you because two nights ago after my dad said his prayers, it came to him to reach out for help, and ask for one more miracle. Please consider us Cheryl Tensfeld, Sara Tensfeld, Clyde Ruska, and Jonathan Ruska. God bless you all!

  12. Mykayla says:

They don't have the time or money to remodel or look for a new home. It would be greatly appreciated if you could help them out. Thank you so much!

  13. Susie Haley says:

    MURDERED! I am writing on behalf of my Uncle Vern and Aunt Deb. Their son Trent Mallory was murdered by his girlfriend on March 6, 2014. She was just found guilty of 1st degree murder on October 18, 2014. Trent has a 5 year old names Carson. My Uncle and Aunt were making plans for retirement, that has all changed now that they have a 5 year old boy to raise. Not only are they raising their own grandson but they are also raising HER (the murderer's) 6 year old son because she is going to prison. My Uncle and Aunt are the greatest people in the world. They live in an OLD 2 story farm house that costs a fortune to heat and is very run down. Normally, the upstairs is closed off but with the boys living there now the open stairs must be heated as well. They are in the process of putting in a new drain field as we speak because the system can't keep up with the extra laundry, baths, dishes, etc..
    They need help!!! Plain and simple. Not only are they grieving the loss of their only son but they are trying to cope with the fact of raising two young boys at retirement age. Please help them if you can.

    Sincerely, Susie a very caring niece. My heart is breaking for them. Thank You

  14. Kit Knight says:

    I have a friend/neighbor who deserves some help. Her whole life has been the sort that would cause anyone to feel like "why me", but never has. Abusive parents (emancipated at 16). She moved to New Orleans and married young. First son was born premature and has cerebral palsy, second one has immune order. After 1st son was born they found she had nasopharyngeal carcinoma and used both radiation and chemo at full force. She survived but with no help at all from her cheating husband. She moved across the street from me in N.O. so she could get her boys into a good school and be close by. I was always impressed by her upbeat personality and devotion to her kids (3). They started to have health problems and found stachybotrys. They moved out, lost the house relocated. She divorced horrible husband and received NO child support. She didn't push it because she wanted her kids to have the possibility of a relationship with him some day. He was so vindictive, she didn't want him to take it out on them. She also felt she had so much radiation/chemo damage, she wouldn't live to reach old age (40 yrs now). We moved to Covington at different times and she bought a house down the street from me. She took a job at the local high school so she could be there for her boys. Things were going well for her and she was happy. Then she was kicked in the throat by a special needs student.Drs misdiagnosed her for a long time. She now has a trach and a feeding tube.She and her boyfriend were renovating this large home and he left when she needed him. Now she I trying to finish the home. Living with sawdust is bad for her trach and she is overwhelmed. She also can no longer work and has to live on a very tight budget. She is trying to keep her boys in college. She is a very beautiful woman inside and out. With a son with a wheelchair (or support) and other with health problems, and her issues, she could use a stroke of good fortune.

    My Mom has been suffering to keep our house after My Dad, died in July,2007. My Moms health has been getting worse, she found out this past December,2013 that she has Osteoporosis besides her disc are deteriorating in her lower back, neck, with having other problems with her health. My Mom always kept our house so clean but she just can't do it anymore. Our house has so many problems walls and floors are cracking, besides needing walls painted, and carpet torn up. Bathroom has so many leaks from the plumbing, bathtub, my Mom can't even get in and out of it, anyway with her legs with the neuropathy that she has of not having the feeling in her legs all the time. Bedrooms are in need of carpet ripped out, walls need to be painted, ceiling needs to be fixed, because of the water coming in from the roof in all 3 bedrooms. Basement has flooded about 4 times in the past couple of years, carpet is dirty, I think there might be mold under the carpet, but, I am afraid to look, walls are with black like mold on them. There are probably more things that are wrong with our house but, I don't know for sure. Besides we might loose our home……. I Pray To God, Each And Every Day That We Don't Loose Our House and That Someone Will Help Us……..Please, Please Help Us…….Aaron Davis from KY

  18. Brenda Ramirez says:

    Hi, my name is Brenda Ramirez I live with my mom who is a single mother of seven children. Lesli who is 18, me who is 16, elias who is 9, Berenice who is 8, Ismael who is 6, and twin sisters who are 3. We are living in a shelter for about three years and can't get a home because of certain things. One my mom doesn't know how to speak inglesh so it's really hard for her to communicate with people who only speak inglesh and second she doesn't know how to read or write. Sometimes we don't have anything to eat and she would go down to her friends asking for food just to feed us. I can't stand seeing my mom struggling and crying in the night thinking about what she is going to give is to eat the next day if we don't have money. We practically live out off food stamps i im trying to get a part time job after school to at least bring in some money into our "home" to eat. I don't consider a shelter my home because I don't find peace in this place everytime I go to school I don't want to go home because all of our problems just stands there and waits for us. We started living in a shelter because of a situation that happen to me and my sister with our step father. From the moment that we started living in a shelter we don't find out way out. Nobody want to help us in any way to be able to move out of the shelter. I can't do this anymore I can't even invite friends over because people who live in the shelter could only enter and they will laugh at me knowing I'm living in a shelter. This place brings problems to our family my mom and sister are constantly fighting about trying to get a place that is not another shelter im afraid that because of this my sister could leave the house and not come back. We have been in so many shelters around New York we have verbs in the Bronx to Brooklyn then back to the bronx. I can't see my family suffer no more we have been going through so many struggles that I will love for you to help us not only me but to my mom that's so inspiring because she is racing seven kids and is still standing strong. Please abc help us get a home not only a home but a new beginning . Thank you
    Sincerely brenda

    My names kalea. I'm 16 years old and Recently my grandpa passed from leukemia. He had also had lung cancer that spread into his liver and all over his bones until it finally hit his brain. When i found out how sick he was i moved in with my grandma and my uncle. My uncle was in a wreck about 7 maybe 8 years ago. He was paralyzed from his waist down and it can be kind of hard for him to get around. Its very hard trying to find a house that's handicap accessible. we only have 1 ramp. and it can sometimes be difficult to use. we live in a little 3 bedroom trailer and its very old. My grandma, Anita is 58 years old. she has problems in her neck where she has to get shots in her neck. and its difficult to find a good house with medical bills for my uncle, grandma, and recent hospital bills for my grandpa. And with me going to college in 2 years it will just be worse for them living by themselves. i really want them to have something that can last them the rest of their lives not having to worry about hospital and medical bills and everything else. we live on quite a few acres of land that my grandpa inherited when his mother died.. which is my great grandma. but without my grandpa there's no one to keep everything up. thank you for listening. i greatly appreciate the opportunity for this

    I am so hoping someone can help us here in South Africa? My son who is now 6 was very sick when he was 1 onwards. He had childhood interstitial lung disease. He spent most of his time in hospital, having biopsies and living on oxygen. Our whole family went through a hell of a lot, including my now 13yr old son. We live in a 100 square meter house which needs so much work done. Many windows are cracked, Cords lying all over. The house hasn't been painted in 10 years and the window sills are cracking and our kitchen is falling apart. We are really battling, this month I can't even pay school fees. We never go out to eat, to movies but spend our life in our little house. I would really appreciate any help if you do have any contacts in South Africa. Please ABC

  31. Theresa Yates says:

    Hi my name is Theresa Yates,I am writing to you on behalf of my sister and brother-in-law.Their names are Sherry and Leon Bonds.They live in Florence,Alabama.They are very good people that are always helping others,but never them selves.They are both disabled and have very little money to fix their home. Through the years they have raised over a dozen children,3 of their own,3 that they have adopted and numerous other children that they have taken in. The most recent child they adopted has been in the last year,and she also has medical problems that they deal with every day.It takes a toll on them emotionally as well as financially.Also in the last few months they have taken in our mother who is 85 and has frontal lobe dementia.I know this sounds like it can't be true but it is.They truly do put others before them selves,and I would so love for them to have something for themselves without them feeling like they are not worthy of someone caring what condition their home is in. They have never done any of this to be rewarded or praised.They just do because of the love they have for others.I truly hope you will consider them as worthy of help.Thank you for your time. Sincerely Theresa Yates

  32. Diana Cooper says:

    I'm writing to you about my uncle and his family from Brookings, Oregon. My uncle has a nine year old son that was recently diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, which is cancer of the brain and spine. He has had a tumor removed and will be undergoing chemo and radiation therapy for the next year. The main issue is that the house they are living in is not considered to ba as sterile as it would have to be in order for him to spend this year at home. My uncle is very hard-working and has been a mechanic in this small town for quite some time now. He is a generous and kind man who would help anyone, and always seems to be in a good mood. They have another child that lives in the home as well. My aunt and uncle are determined to have him home during the treatments as they want to spend as much time as they can with him in case, God forbid, it doesn't go well. They are trying to get enough funding together to at least redo his room, but then he will be completely confined to his room even if they are able to get it done. There is much to do and none of us want him to have to live in the hospital. They also have to travel quite a ways for the treatments and it isn't covered by their insurance. Needless to say, they are in desperate need and no parent should ever have to see their child go through this, let alone be in no position to make his life comfortable while he is going through this. I'm reaching out for help, and I know that no matter what happens it is God's will. Thank you sincerely for reading, as I'm sure every story touches your hearts as it does mine.

  33. Farah Saeed says:

    I have watched your show for as long as it has been on the air. My mother in law to be is renting to own a two bedroom one bath house. My fiancé, myself and his two children are currently living with her until my fiancé can pass his state boards for Nursing. We have tried to do some remodeling our
    selves but fell short due to financial difficulties. My mother in law has worked endlessly since her teens, raising three boys while working 2 and 3 job just to pay the bills. We are struggling to keep the lights and water on each month and just have given up on finishing the remodeling and repairs. My fiance, an Iraq war vet can't even take the time to study for his state boards for worrying over bills and how we will make it til the next day.

    Hello my name is Haley Kistler and I am 14 years old. I have ne'er been able to bring my friends to my house because I am so ashamed of it. We have always been a very poor family. My dad left my mom and he moved to Kentucky and left us here in this horrible house. it doesn't have central air or heat so in the winter we freeze to death it we're not two pair of pants and wrapped up in a blanket. and in the summer it is so boiling hot that I'd rather stay outside because the inside of the house is hotter. our house is very old and we don't have any money or any choice to fix it. my house is very far from my school. we have rats, snakes, roaches, spiders, you name it. we have it. our house stinks of mold because there is so much moisture and it just turns to mold. a while back, my father was going to renovate the house but he ne'er finished and the kitchen is cover in sheet rock. he made the stairs and they don't even have a rail on them and it is an extreme hazard. we have wood floors in our bathroom and laundry room and my mom has already had her foot fall through the floor while doing laundry. I hate living like this and I can't take it anymore. just to use the bathroom we have to turn on the blow dryer to heat ourself up while using the toilet. this family has been through enough and we still have to deal with this. I know that you probably aren't even going to see this but if you do pick us for your show we would be so blessed and thankful you don't even know. so please I'm begging you. I will pray every single night. thank you, Haley Kistler. P.S. my mom doesn't know I did this so I kind of want to be a surprise!! PLEASE.

    Dear Ty hi my name is Kedric Brissette I am a home owner and have build a mech. shop from word of mouth , and i would like to tell you a little story …my first son was born with c.f. which finally took his life at 23 he had a great life as much as i could give him what a blessing he was through those years he taught me what life was all about and how i should live it even when his mom and me had gone our own ways what a son it was 7 years Oct 13 that we said our good by..as the years past i got into buisness with my dad started a shop that i now run and hope to own some day. then i found my wife she had a 6 month old son at the time so small so cute we got married and had to more kids a daughter and another son 9 years has gone by and still to this day all of are love is strong then the older child Gavin started getting head pain ,double vision ,now this is a child that has never been sick never mist a day of school which he loves took him in first they said it was a ear infection then they said he had a double ear infection we are like look there is something going on with this kid and it is not a infection then we finally got a M.R.I. at that point 6 months later they all start to freak out life fighted him to Portland Oregon we live in this small town Harbor Oregon 7 hrs away they tell us he has a tummer on the back of his brain. So at this point as you may know our family's life has just changed we find out that he has Medulloblastoma and that he has to go through six weeks of radiation then two weeks of chemo and then two weeks rest then back to the radiation and the chemo this will continue for a year or more ( he is only 9 years old ) we live in a 30 year oil mobile home that is so falling apart in all ways, right now i have started to make him a clean room which has used up all i have to to this and now my other son which is four has to sleep with me for our home was only a three bedroom my 7year old daughter has her own room which it took me two years to build out of the master bathroom first time i ever did a remodel wow! anyway Ty my town has given us awesome support just look at my face book page (Kedric Brissette jr) but our needs are out weighing the support the biggest worry i have is getting this house ready so he has a safe and supper clean place to go when he is not at the hosp.i hope and pray you really do read these and some how i have touched your heart as my son has touched ours and many others who have grown to know him i only have untill Dec. 12 2014 to have this done or almost done at least i will have his room ready. We have never asked for anything. We have supported the town with all we have when some one needed something to help them because of needs we where there…thank you Ty for all that you have done for this world .It needs more like you …(kedric Brissette )
