  • Heart Transplant Patient needs help!

    My wife needs a heart transplant and we are struggling financially because I am out of work. We live in my parent's house that was built in 1910 and is definitely in need of a make over. My wife is unable to walk up stairs and needs help with walking since suffering a mild stroke on 2/17/13. We would like to be considered for your show. 10
  • Please help my struggling family!

    Hi, my name is Brittany. I am 22 years old, I have 1 brother and 1 sister and they live with my parents. My parents recently kicked me out because I didn't have the money to give them. But I still love them and I hope that they have an opportunity to live a better life.

    10 years ago, my mom Marilyn married my step dad, Dave. We lived in Golden valley for a couple of years while we had a house being built here in Princeton, MN. Everything was fine until some financial problem occured. Since we have moved into the house in Princeton, we have been struggling to get by.

    We had 6 deaths in the family... my mom lost 4 brothers, a sister, and her mother. All of that emotional stress has caused a spiraling depression, and she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and when she had gotten a shot to treat it, the doctor damaged her sciatic nerve, causing more pain. With all of the physical and emotional pain, my mother has not been able to work. We took in most of the belongings of those we lost, so we have NO ROOM in our house for anything! it's so cluttered and so messy, we have no idea what to do with it all! My mom doesn't want to sell it because it all has so much sentimental value...

    Dave kicked it into overdrive and has started building his own business. He was a computer programmer for a while, and drove truck for a short while, and now he is working for his friend. We need a smaller house, or more room, or something!!! My little brother has nothing to do outside, he spends all day long inside with video games, which is not good! He needs to be outside exploring and building stuff and getting dirty! Dave needs a big, organized office for his work, Marilyn needs a room that she can relax in with her music (she loves classic rock like led zeppelin) and something theraputic that can help her get better! My sister is probably moving in with her boyfriend soon, so I don't think we need to do much with that. We just need all the help we can get. Despite the fact that they kicked me out for not having money, I still want to show them that I love them and that I appreciate all that they did for me. This would help them so so much!!
  • Disabled Vet's home ruined by contractor

    My husband is a disabled Navy Vet. We hired a contractor to work on our home. We took out a second mortgage to fund it. There were many major mistakes made. as part of the job we paid for a new roof for our home. It has been nearly 4 years and it still leaks. We continued to talk to the contractor and he made empty promises of "making it right" We are trusting people and believed he wanted to do right by us. My husband uses a cane to walk and has been on the roof many times to make some repairs to slow the leak. We eventually consulted an attorney. unfortunately the statute of limitations has passed. We do not have the money to fix our home. We have a very unique house and love it very much. At this point we are praying that nothing falls apart. Since that time I have become injured as well. We have no hope of being able to fix our home.

    My husband has started repairs to the interior of the house. Our bedroom and bathroom are torn up. Our basement had flooded and we removed all of the carpeting. As much as my husband would like to finish all of the projects in the house , he just can't. He was injured in a fire on a submarine. He saved a man's life and was given a medal in recognition of it. I am very proud to be his wife. I know it is difficult for him to look at all of the "construction " zones in our home while feeling helpless.

    We spent $1000. on an engineer to look at our home to list the is scarey.

    We have fought for every thing we have in life. We would be so grateful to be on a show to help us fix our dream home.
  • A Sterile Home for Gina

    Please I really need your help. My niece Gina has recently been diagnosed with MULTIPLE MYELOMA

  • we need help! :(

    hello, i am a sixteen year old girl. my dad started building a house for us to live in, but last year in august he got into a dirt bike accident. he shattered his femur and broke his jaw in three places. my eleven year old brother saw it the whole thing happened. he is in need of a knee replacement. when this occured he had surgery the next day after the day of the accident. he was rushed to the hospital. he is unable to build the house at this time. we were hoping to get in the house this summer but we are not able to now since he broke his leg. we are all sad that we wont be living in the house this summer, and im really hoping that you can help us. there is four of us in the family, me; a sixteeen year old, my brother who is eleven and my parents. we would love to be able to get the help from you guys. we would really appreciate the help, it would mean so much to us. if its possible, could you e-mail me back if you come upon this? its very important to my family and I. my mom has been so stressed out because of where we are living now. i dont like to see her like this. we started building the new house just up the road from where we live now. it was coming along nicely until my dad broke his leg. i was really really upset when that happened. i couldnt concentrate in school or anything. a new house would be the best present that i have ever gotten, and i couldn't ask for more. i think it would just make my mom so much happier. i'd rather have my mom happy then sad and stressed out, i've never seen her this down before. and we've lived in this house for about four years. i live with my grandmother, and we just want to move out.. so, if you come upon this, you please e-mail me:

  • Mother and disabled child need your extreme help.

    My name is Elle, and I clean peoples yards and haul stuff with my trailor. I was referred to clean a ladies yard. When I arrived, She introduced me to her mentally challenged son. Also, she has heart problems and she has no income. The lady (Emley) has lived at the house since she was 2, her father also died that year and she has 9 brothers and sisters. Her mother had filled the pool in so the

    children wouldn't drown. Emiley's mother is still alive at 95 and living with one of her daughters. Upon entering the home I couldn't believe my eyes. The home had barely had no furniture, the walls were falling apart, windows broken, the front door you can see the light on the top and bottom and everything is a disater. The kid has been begging his mom to dig up the pool and asking me if I was there to dig up the pool. Emiley, doesn't drive she has no car and rides a bicycle to the grocery store. She is constantly struggling but she seems to have good spirits.

    I have been working there for a couple of weeks. I've come to know Emiley and she is a very giving person. I think that your show is wonderful I watch it every week, I'm one of your biggest fans and it amazes me to see how happy you make people and how their lives had changed because of your show. Maybe you could help her and her son to have it eaiser. I have refused to take her money for the

    work, cried myself to sleep and dreamed about your show. That's when it occured to me that you and your show could perform miricles for Emiley and her son. I couldn't think of a more deserving person to help, that's why I wrote you this letter.

    `There is so much more that I could tell you but I think that you should see it with your own eyes (from my lips to GOD's ears). I hope this letter reaches you. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please feel free to contact me at the phone number or email address, I have provided below.

    Hello my name is Brittany, i'm 22 years old I live in Gastonia NC with my boyfriend and his mother. I am 6 months pregnant with my first child and our home needs a lot of fixing up to do. The kitchen floor is rotting and sinking in, the windows are busted and they don't fit in the frame, walls are falling apart, bathtub is going through the floor and the bathroom sink does not work, the rats and bugs have taken over. In the winter time it is freezing because of the cracks in the house we will have the heat all the way up to 80 degrees and it don't feel like the heat is on. In the summer time it is blazing and we don't have central air all we have is a fan and air conditioners and that does nothing.

  • The Roof is Caving In, Help!!!!

    I have friends of mine who's roof is caving in on them, and it's very scary. I'm scared for them and their children. Their roof was built and sits right on the walls and everything is cracking. They can't get help from anyone, not insurance, not the inspector, no one. This is so upsetting to be sleeping and in fear that their house will cave in on them. They need help, desparately!!!!
  • Review not a plea for help.

    You guys do a lot for a lot of people and I thank you from the bottom of my heart that you guys do things the way you do them. You bring out the best in people while making those involved and those watching get all choked up with good emotions. I can't recall one show that didn't make me cry happy tears.

    It's sad that you all get "Please Help" in this section when you should be getting ideas and opinions from your fans.

    So please keep up the good work and keep making people happy.

  • We need help

    Hi, my family of four was finally able to buy a house after my father in laws passing, as part of his last wishes. We fell in love with the house but realized there were some things that need fixed. Right away things started falling apart, and things have spiraled since then. My youngest daughter has Cerebral Palsey, the front steps need replaced, the basement has leaks, the back deck we had to rip out which has caused an eye sore, a large tree had to be removed causing the back yard to look horrible, and now the garage leaks water also. Any help we would appreciate.

My grandmother is 80 and is on the last level of Alzheimers, my grandpa used to look after her but now we have to because he died 5 years ago in 2007. My dad died 6 years ago in 2006, we were left with nothing. We lived this way for 8 years.

  • The scamming contractor

    My fiance's mother is a sixty year old has had no money to repair anything on her house since he died 14 years ago. She finally got enough to do three rooms and paid a local contractor 6600.00 to do so. He took the money, spent it, and didn't come back. She has been living with a path through her house for seven could use the help so a little paint, some cabinets, floors and windows to replace her broken ones. She is such a great person and always helps everyone I really wish we could get her some help for once.

  • Less stress in this mess

    I usually help out others, without thinking. This time I am the one needing help. My husband n I had purchased a fixer upper. We needed a stable home for my oldest daughter whom has autism n several other medical problems. I started to notice that bills weren't being paid n knew right away that my husband had started battling drug use all over again. I had to leave him, but not before it got to a dangerous level.

    Since I left we have tried so hard to rebuild. It just seems like there is more downs then ups. I had to quit my job due to a problem I developed with my legs n hips. I have dealt with PTSD the majority of my life, n never let it stop me. However I don't know how much more stress I can take. This house has asbestos inside n out. Knob n tubing wiring. So many things that are health hazards. I am doing my best to fix I know that I don't know what I am doing. If you know anyone that can help us, please please let us know.
