Episode Summary

EDIT
Broadbent Family
AIRED:
A courageous mother, Patricia Broadbent, has helped three of her adopted children and many others face AIDS with hope, teaching them that life is here for the living. Her own recent bout with cancer has only enforced that belief. In an episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition -- How'd They Do That?," more of their touching story will be told, as well as the remarkable process of their home renovation in North Las Vegas. Patricia, a longtime advocate for children and a former social worker, has given birth to one child and adopted six others in her lifetime, three of whom still live at home -- Hydeia, 20, Shana, 16, and Trisha, 12. All three of these girls contracted AIDS from their birth mothers and are now living with the virus. When the disease took center stage in both her life and the world's in the late 1980s, Patricia became an advocate for AIDS awareness and acceptance. Since she was six years old, Hydeia, who never viewed her AIDS status as a death sentence, has also rallied to bring understanding and assistance to those touched by HIV/AIDS. Today she is an internationally recognized AIDS activist. As with all of the intense remodeling projects that "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" undertakes, there is a great deal that goes on that does not make it into the final broadcast. Now viewers can see all of that and more, including: -Where team leader Ty Pennington got his inspiration for the "secret room" he built for Patricia, whose only dream was to have a house she'd feel proud of to pass on to her beloved children. -How designer Paul DiMeo built two unique music-themed bedrooms - a hip-hop themed room for Hydeia, and a classical-themed room for Shana. -How designer Preston Sharp created a sanctuary where the family can bond over art projects. -Builder KB Home's additional contribution of landscaping all of the homes on the Broadbents' street and cul-de-sac. The design team for this episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition -- How'd They Do That?" features Ty Pennington, Paul DiMeo, Michael Moloney, Constance Ramos and Preston Sharp.moreless
