    I really need help, I usually don't ask for help, but, I live in a flat with my mother, my brother and my grandma, behind my uncles house. (The flat consists of one bedroom, which my grandmother sleeps in, a bathroom and a kitchen that goes into the lounge which my mother, my brother and I sleep My brother was born with cerebral palsy and slight autism, he was born with cataracts so he doesn't see well at all, he had operations on both his eyes, the second eye was not successful, he had an opertion on his achilles tendons. With his birth their was an oxygen shortage so he's got brain damage, his mental age is 7 and a neuroligist told us that we just have to cope with it. He plays video games 24/7, he doesn't go to school because he wasn't coping in any of the schools we put him in. 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. My mother is an artist, she doesn't have another job because she can't leave the house because she mostly takes care of my grandmother. I go to the college here, I'm studying to become a chef and I want to own my own restaurant some day.

  • The scamming contractor

    9.5
    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

    2.0
    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.

  • Sandy Hook Elementary School!!!!

    10
    I think it would be so awesome for you to really give it a thought to tear down the Sandy Hook Elem. School and rebuild them a new one. That would it would give the parents, Teachers and the community a better memory for them for years to come. And make their children feel safe for going to school. I'm a concerned parent and though I don't live there or anywhere close. I'm just reaching out for the community, parents and Teachers that live there. Thank You, Terri from Henderson, Nevada (SO PLEASE HELP THEM, SO THEY CAN MOVE ON FROM THIS HORRIBLE EVENT)
  • No better way of showing people how to BE people

    8.0
    Providing an example of how people can be more humane is the best way of spreading cheer I can think of. I'm currently in school learning screenwriting and making a lot of connections, but won't be finished for a couple of years. I'm a single mom with two kids and I'm disabled, but this isn't about me.



    This is about being unable to help my sister who lives in Blackfoot, Idaho. Her husband has been diagnosed with Parkinsons and is rapidly becoming less and less able to care for himself. My sister McKenzie is working two jobs, going to school, and paying all the bills by herself. Cory's progression is inevitably going to land him in a wheelchair, and with her gone so much, no one will be able to help care for him. (They have no one else living with them that can The worst part is their home is outdated and with the narrow hallway and sharp corners to get into the rooms from the hallway, a wheelchair simply will not be conducive to them surviving.



    Many of your shows have brought tears to my eyes and a few have caused me to downright cry. This couple will undoubtedly fall into the second category for most people. To know good people, who would appreciate it, need help makes a person do what they can. I'm doing that now. Please help this couple regain a new lease on life while McKenzie continues her education in the field of medicine and tries to care for her husband. They've already lost their livestock and will lose everything if he cannot maneuver their home.

    Ty, I heard a rumor that you may be considering a makeover for Sandy Hook Elementary School. I had immediate feelings of relief and hope. What an amazing thing to do for a community, but I think it would really have world wide effect, bringing hope to parents everywhere that communities can organize and change things for the better, especially with help. News of Sandy Hook is world wide now, and the need for a safe place for our children - our babies! - is so universal. I know this would be a big thing to do, but it does "take a village". May I come and help?

    I know you guys normally do makeovers for families and their homes but I would love for you to seriously consider making over the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. I have a 7 year old and I can not imagine the grief that the families are going through right now. And the thought that as a parent I would have to send my child back to that school as a constant reminder is devastating. Maybe you could even set a precedence on how to build a safer school. I know that it would be costly but look at the price that community paid. Just please consider it.

    Tonight's show, building for many American Veteran's was just AWESOME!!!! But, when it joyously announced having raised 1.1 million dollars to build homes for our Veterans, and just a week or two ago our nation raised 580 million dollars in the lottery, well. it just made me really sad!!! Why not set up a deal to where all Americans could be apart of this "Pass It Forward" deal for all our American men and women who need this same kind of Blessing??? Who wouldn't want to contribute a measly $2.00 per "Pass it Forward" ticket??? To give expecting nothing in return! What an awesome thing we could all do! Please give this fa nominal idea a huge consideration! We all owe our veterans a huge thanks, not to mention those that gave they're lives and left behind shattered lives, shattered dreams. We All can do better than a measly 1.1 Million, if we could just get "Greed" and "Self" out of the way. Personally I have faith in America !!! And GOD of course! After all we are "One Nation Under God!"

    Hi my name is Katie. I love watching your show .I shed a tear every time I watch it , hearing the stories and tragedies of the families and you guys helping families and making their lives easier. It makes me think of my mother and think that I wish I could help my mother in every way possible but that's not mother is 57 yrs old and just recently had a heart attack she also has high blood pressure,three either split disk or deteriorated disk in her back due to a car accident and from that her spine is not normal,but she doesn't let the pain she's in everyday stop her,because she knows she has to do what she can to make ends meet. She is an inspiration to me. Looking back on it I know as a child we put her through hell she was a single mother raising three girls and went without to give us what we wanted or needed and still to this day she still goes without,because her financial situation. She helps everyone that she can even though she is struggling herself and ask nothing in works a part time job and is on disability. She takes care of my 15 yr old niece my nephew also lives with her. She is about to lose her home that she has worked so hard for and I would love to just see her happy and worry free because she is everything to me ,don't know where I would be or what I would do without her..

    Hello,

    I am reaching out to Ty. Earlier this year, my mom was diagnosed with melanoma cancer. She is going through kemo right now and she cannot get around as well as she used to. She is very tired all of the time and I have no idea how else to help her. She gives a lot to the community and where she works. Also my aunt was diagnosed with cancer too. My grandmother has emphazima and my uncle has MS. I would really like to help out my aunt. She has to take care of my grandma all of the time because she is doing very poorly and just recently got out of the hospital. She also has to take care of my uncle with MS. My aunt is a hero for taking care of her loved ones before heself. Her house is not really suitable for them because my uncle can't get around in his wheelchair and i REALLY want to help them out for all they do!

    Thank you so much,

    Delaney Becker

  • School fire

    9.5
    My school just had a major fire. All of our text books all of our supplies were in the fire. Its really sad because it was the only the second day we started. We don't have anywhere to go right now. I really upset because I would never think of this happening. Luckily no one got hurt.
  • extremely unusual request for help with a nursing home

    10
    I dont even know if what im about to ask is possible, but its worth a shot.. I work for a very small nursing home in Blackstone Massachusettes. Its a very old building but very cute and home like rather than the usual hospital type setting most nursing homes have.. there a very nice porches on the first floor for the patients to go outside but there is no elevator in this building, so most of the patients on the second floor never get to go outside or go downstairs to activities in the dining room because they are in wheel chairs. i just feel like this is the last days of thier lives and theyy deserve to enjoy every aspect of it possible, even if it is only sitting in the sun watching the birds. If i had enough money to renovate this building myself to give these very special people a little more to enjoy in life than a closed in room, i would love nothing more than to do it. but unfortunatelly im a single mom with three kids and custody of my nephew so my free time and money is limited.. but all i can think about when im at work is how much id like to fix up this building for these wonderful elderly people who have all touched my heart in some way. i love decorating and i look around at simple things that could be done to make this such a nice place . just an elevator or an upper deck so they can all go outside, and maybe some new paint on the walls.. this is a long shot but hey miracles can happen right? either way.. THANK YOU FOR ALL THE LIVES YOUVE TOUCHED WITH WHAT YOU DO AND SHOWING US THAT THERE STILL ARE GOOD PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.

  • My Parents Need Help

    10
    My parents came to this country about 30 years ago to try and chase the American Dream. They became home owners and they also had a small business. However, a few years ago, they lost the business and had their home foreclosed. My attorney and I have been fighting for the last 5 years to keep them in their home and just last week we were finally able to work something out with the bank. However, my mother suffers from rheumatoid arthritis which is increasingly crippling her and my father has suffered massive heart attacks and has undergone series of heart surgeries. I have worked very hard to keep their house for them and how that I have accomplished that, I would like them to enjoy it. Their home is over 60 years old and falling apart. I've tried to keep it together, but it needs a serious lift. The dining room attached to the home is sinking and the kitchen is rotting from the outside in. The downstairs bathroom has become absolutely useless and the upstairs bathroom is well on it's way to the same condition. There is no insulation and there are cracks everywhere, not to mention the pest problem that they have also tried controlling. Please help. They are in desperate need of it and I can't help them anymore without completely drowning myself.



    Sincerely,

    Denise Bernard
