    Hello to all of you! I want to thank you for helping make so families dreams come true. Now I am asking for someone to listen to my story, my name is Jacqueline Morales all my life my family have struggled to live in descent home, but we always end up being in home that are old and filled with roaches. We have had everything done to make these roaches go away ,but they won't. My mother has two jobs I have always known her to have that many jobs. My poor father died in May 2009.He has renal failure he suffered so much. He is in a better place. My mother has been threw a lot and its always seems like we have the baddest luck. Then something happen to me that I thought in a million years this would happen I fell in deep depression that made me stop working and can't seem to find a job to help my mom with the bills, even though my brother and sister moved in no one seems to help. We live in a house that has no kitchen at all or a floor everything here is horrible. Our boiler just broke everyday It seems more depressing than the next. Everywhere in the house seems so sad and broken that everyone seems to live only in there rooms. I have a nine year old daughter this is not a place for her to live in. we hate being stuck in the room. I hate having my daughter in this house.Is there anyone that can help us it will be you guys! Please help us live a better life that my mom and daughter can come home too. Thanks

  2. Charise Farmer says:

    Hi ABC FAMILY! My name is Charise Farmer and i am writing about a loving family that lives in Hastings, NE. The Vertin family has 3 children with a rare disease called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. There muscles become weaker and weaker until they can no longer use them. Max, 8 years old, is the oldest boy with this disease and they just got the measurements for his first wheelchair. A Duchenne MD says that the kids will be in a wheelchair around the time they are nine and will live to their twenties. They have good days and days where they get tired just walking to the mailbox. Betty and Jason Vertin didn't know the wife was a carrier until their fifth child was born. The Make-A-Wish foundation granted the oldest son, Max, a wish in which he wanted to be like IRON MAN, every boys dream right;). Betty, the mom, home schools the kids and is a full-time mom. I get the pleasure of babysitting them every once in a while to give her a break and i know they are going to have problems when it comes to having wheelchairs in the house. Right now the school area is their basement/movie room/playroom. The main floor of their house is a standard living room, kitchen/dining room, master bedroom & 2 additional bedrooms, and 1 bathroom. Everything else is down a flight of stairs. The hallway is about one wheelchair wide, can you imagine getting around with 3 wheelchairs? Nothing in that house is handicap accessible and Hastings doesn't have much to offer in that market. I have seen your show many times and i couldn't think of another family more deserving. They are constantly traveling via plane and/or car for doctors appointments in different states. I have news videos i could share to show you a little more about the family and their story. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a disease that has no cure. These boys (Max, Rowen, & Charlie) will melt your heart with their smile and i hope you can help these kids live a life they could only dream of.

  4. Dee says:

    Hi my name is dee. I have 2 children. I am cutrently living with my husband, my mom, and dad.. In June we will be having another family on our house. We will be having my brother john he has type 2 diabetes. There will be 3 more kids added to our household. My sister in law wil be having another baby. We have 6 rooms and one room is filled with mold.. Each one of us has a room except for the other 3 children that will be moving in. We are trying to help their kids because we know my brother won't be there for them.. And they need extra help because there will be another baby coming.
    We have a large chicken coop that's messed up and it's very hard for my dad to go down and close the gates because he is very sick..
    My mom is very old and she is working to help support my brothers family because they can't support themselves because my sister in law is pregnant and she can't work and also my brother has type 2 diabetes so he can't work either because he's very sick..
    Our home has lots of cockroaches and spiders.. We have been having them since our house was made. We can't do anything about them because they'res too much of them and we don't have money to pay to get rid of them.
    I am mostly the one that pays the bulls around here because the only people that are working in our house is my mom and I.. My husband broke his arm and it's very hard trying to find a job ..
    It would be a great big blessing if you guys would help us out.

  7. Trudi Hardman says:

    I am writing this hoping that you will consider my family for an Extreme Home Makeover. I married my husband 4 years ago and now we have 6 children and us living in a 3 bedroom home with 2 bathrooms. He had 3, I had 2, and we have 1 together. We have a 15, 14, 11, 11, 7, and 4 year old, all of which are boys except the 4 year old.
    Our current living situation means that one of the 11 year olds shares his bedroom with the 4 year old girl, the 15 and 14 year old share a room, and then the other two (11 & 7) sleep on a futon that is in the dining room. I love to have all of our family eat together but our dining room is so small that we barely fit around the table. We squeeze around a table that, when extended out, is suppose to sit no more then 6 people and our chairs are hitting the walls because the space is so limited. We spend a lot of time together playing games, attending sports activities the kids are involved in, and just being a family. Our living room is too small to even let everyone have a place to sit. We have seating for 6 right now which means that the 2 little ones usually end up on a lap or on the floor if we are hanging out in there.
    My husband was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 16 years old and has been living with an insulin pump since he was 23. In recent years he has been having to go to the hospital a lot more because his blood sugar gets out of control – even with proper diet and care – and it makes him extremely sick. We spend days in ICU every time that he is admitted to the hospital. The most recent time he went, 4 weeks ago, he had a blood sugar of 1026 when we arrived and it got up to 1470 before finally starting to come back down. Normal blood sugars are 70-120! While there, his blood pressure dropped dangerously low and he was almost totally non-coherent. It is a miracle that he didn't go into a coma because most people would before it ever reached that number. He is waiting on a new insulin pump that should improve his quality of life by being able to take his blood sugar and report it to the pump – allowing him to track it throughout the day and week.
    My husband and I are both school teachers and teach in economically challenged districts. Around 80% of our students are on free lunch. We both have a heart for kids! We love teaching but sometimes, especially in smaller towns, it just barely covers the bills that come with a family of 8. We also have hospital/medical bills that will probably NEVER be paid off because he didn't have insurance until August 2013.
    I would love to have a home that had room for everyone to have their own space. Shared bedrooms are ok but kids like a place to call their own. We don't have the space to do that now and we don't have the financial ability to provide it at this time. I would love to have a home where we can be together with plenty of room to eat together, cook together and play together.
    Thank you for considering our family for your home makeover show.

  8. Melissa Ramos says:

    Hello my name is Melissa Ramos, I am not writing to you for myself but for a good friend Toniann and her two boys Tyler and Nicholas who live in Centereach New York Long Island. Ages two and three years old. Brother who were born with a rare disease called spinal muscular atrophy. As you can imagine just for any adult this is hard to live with day to day as you would be faced with unimaginable struggles that you and I take for granted on a daily basis. What I am asking for is for you to give these two beautiful baby boy brothers the chance to have an easy day for once and help them & their parents out on raising them and help build them a handicap accessible home to grow up and live in and make loving memories as the mother is trying to do for them now. Toniann, their mother, is the most unselfish caring loving giving person you will ever meet in your lifetime. Please I am begging you help this family out and please let them win this and make their homes handicap accessible for these two loving boys thank you very much. You would be making a HUGE difference in these boys lives. Thank you.

  9. Rachquel Jones says:

    On April 7 2014 I lost my mom Allison Green. She left behind 5 beautiful kids. She had back surgery that resulted in a unsuccessful surgery Her health declined that resulted in her death. My mom died unexpectedely at the age of 48. She struggled to maintain her home. Our home need repairs and other cost. She left a graduating senior and 2 adult children at her home and grandkids.It would be nice if we could save her home and remember her legacy. Not only that she raised 5 beautiful children on her own. My lil brother is the last to graduate on june 13 2014. We as a family want to make her proud of us.W would love to have a home that her 5 kids and grandkids could have a home to go to. She was a wonderful lady that is truly going to be missed.

  10. Shauna Young says:

    I don't want to through a pity party, but we need help and considering my desperate situation, I was wondering if you could help us. I'm a married woman with 4 children. I've had 3 cancer operations in the last year and have pushed myself to be the greatest I can be. My husband had a very successful business that suddenly crashed. We have a house in nh that's paid off but it's too small for our family. Our other home is in New Bedford and not only do we have a large mortgage, but this city is a dive and I can't take my children outside for a walk without crossing dozens of syringes. My mom is blind and I'd like to have an in law for her. We also have a daughter that we sponsor an are involved in the fresh air for children foundation. My hope and vision is to create a magical, playful, whimsical home environment for everyone to fit, including the many kids I support and care for. I know this is a rather short synopsis, but I'm desperate and as embarrassing as this is to reach out to you, it's my only hope. Sincerely Shauna Young

  13. Tasha Spivey says:

    Hi… I am Tasha R. Spivey I live in a small town named Itta Bena,MS . I have six children & I am currently living with my mother. I had to move in with her because of the lack of jobs in our area I wasn't able to take care of my children alone. I have had odd jobs but nothing last for very long. my mom house is built on bad soil & it is sinking in the ground. Every time there is heavy rainfall the water comes up through the floors & we have to dip water out of the house. My Kaylee has asthma & very bad allergies also my mom has very bad allergies & I know that the walls in the house has mold from the water & it keeps Kaylee flared up. The house has a large crack running straight through it & the plumbing also backs up regularly. I have tried & tried but this house is all we got & its falling apart on us. My oldest son has joined the National Guard cause he says that he wants to help families in their time of need. He always put others first just like his mommy. I volunteer & help the kids out at our local high school we live in such a rural area and money is so very little here. I try to raise my kids to follow their dreams and be all they can be and I feel like I have failed them but deep down I know they know that I love them with all my heart. My mom is getting older & I know she wants her own space the house is so crowded with us. ABC help us get out of this water… Sincerely Ms. Tasha Spivey…

  16. Lisa Olson says:

    Two years ago I ended up on life support and can no longer work. I am disabled and live in a small apartment. I cannot have a surgery until i find a home without stairs. I have always opened my home to teenagers in need of a home and feed them when they are hungry. I have a dream of having a home with enough space for troubled kids. There is such a need. But I lack the space to help. My health is in desperate need for surgery. I can only dream of a home that i will never have.

  17. Joy Conti says:

    Hello to all of you heaven-sent people helping other(TY, and his whole Extreme Makeover Show),
    My name is Joy I am a mother of 2 and a grandmother of 7 one of 7 the youngest I have been raising since a few weeks old he is 5 now and in kindergarten. Joey is ADHD and has a extreme case he takes medication to help him function a little in school. I am disabled I have COPD and I am on oxygen plus breathing treatments and inhalers. I almost died last February with Blood clots in my lungs. I live in a home that is full of black mold. The house Joey and I live in was built in the 1965 a small 2 bed 1 bath home in need of major repair to roof and inside where the roof and AC has leaked to cause mold. After reading some of the stories maybe I shouldn't be asking for help but the problem is I live on such a fixed income $831.00 monthly,$ 400.00 going to rent right off the bat then I so to say rob Peter to pay Paul I extend the electric to pay the water or I skip the water to pay the electric the stress is also weighing on me. We can not keep living in this mold that will get worse with rainy season coming. I can not afford to move there is no where that I can find for $400.00 a month. I have tried all agencies there are to many people waiting that there are no longer waiting list or for habitat for humanity I don't make enough money. I am really asking for your help because I don't know where to turn and I don't want my grandson to developed any other health problems because I cant afford better living conditions for him. Thank You Extreme Make Over for any help you can to do for Joey and I.

  18. lesa ann says:

    I am asking for my home to be next on extreme makeover! Why? We bought this home after my fiancees ex suddenly gave him custody of their 2 kids. We needed space. Amish lived here prior to us…we hired people to fix electric an water,only for it to be incorrect! We added 2 rooms one for our bedroom the other to put a Woodstove in. As we were trying to get it together I was diagnosed with breast cancer! We have spent the past 3 years dealing with my cancer. My fiance lost his job I've been unable to work house is totally unfinished, depressing! During all my cancer treatments an surgeries not once has anyone offered to help finish house! Thru my journey I have realized how much you need an how little there is to help. Thus the birth of 'birds of a feather' a group to help along the journey. We have taken a paper route an orgami owl to make money we donate 10 per cent to the group. I just wish we had the money an help to fix our home !!!!

  19. Mindy Braithwait says:

    Early 2005, both my parents left their home in Elm Creek Ne to move to Columbus NE to take care of their Mothers. My grandma (my mothers mom) has alzheimers and my mom is the only child. My dads mothers' mind was amazing she was just getting older and needed some help. My dad was on disability so he had a hard time doing somethings that is also when my mom would help. My brother and I resided in Kearney NE. My brother didn't for long as he was in the Army. After my dads mom got sick and wasn't doing good, I decided to up and leave my apt (had lived there 8yrs) and be with my family in Columbus. as of feb. 2011 my grandma had passed. My dad still resided in her house but he had a very hard time losing her as he took care of her for so long and just felt lost without her. Then June of 2011 my father passed. After his mothers death he had failed with his health but also had a rough go at it at the VA hospital in Omaha NE. We fought so hard for this man and we just couldn't get any answers from doctors, nurses,etc. I had set up a nursing home stay for him in Columbus do to he was doing well and was suppose to come back home for rehabilitation, next morning he was on life support and later passed away. That was a Friday, had funeral Tuesday and then family decided it was time to get everything moved out of grandma and dads house to sell house. In a matter of little time our house over at my moms moms was filled with two of everything. Then in that situation you mourn so much you cant and don't want to get rid of anything. A few weeks later the basement floods, we have no money, no experience with this problem and a basement full of beds, dressers, clothes etc. Its not liveable at all. The upstairs is ok but just not enough room for us 3 girls. Now as of March 13, 2014 my brother had an aortic dissection and stroke at the age of 32. He survived (bless the lord almighty)He had the 5hr surgery in Norfolk NE. The Doctor came out to talk to my mom and I and said "the rest is up to the Lord and your son/brother." My mom and I lived in that hospital. He has had a very tough go at it, we didn't want him to go to the VA hospital for recovery do to what my father went through but he had to since that was paid for. We were there every night. Watching like a hawk and living there to be sure he was ok. His blood pressure was up and down, his behaviors were crazy do to the frontal lobe stroke. he also had no movement of left leg and left arm/hand. He is now in Madonna Rehab. Center and is doing amazing. He is back to his normal self. Still a little weak on his left side. Mainly his arm and hand still, but able to walk. Next concern is VA will only pay for a few weeks at this rehab center. We want to bring him home instead of him going to a VA nursing home where we feel he will fail. Even though he is the toughest person I know, (2 terms in Iraq, huricanes, Nebraska floods etc.) he just deserves better. Our home (like I told you earlier) is in no shape or form for anyone let alone someone who has a disability. God has truly blessed us already, but this opportunity would be heaven sent as well. Thank you, The Braithwait Family

  21. Katrina Gardner says:

    This morning my dad had an electrical fire in his home burning out the master bedroom as well as other damage. Unfortunately, he couldn't afford insurance so he has to try and repair all the damage by himself. Please can someone help him, he's on a fixed income because he doesn't work and can't do this alone. I know you probably get tons of emails like this but just seeing his face broke my heart because I can't do as much as I'd like to.
