  • HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    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

  • Hallo there from Iceland

    Even if I don't have my apartment or house, I just want to say how much I enjoy your doing for people .

    Each time I cry when I see the reaction from people who get help from you, it is absolute outstanding.

    I adore also your humor and it makes me happy to watch you all work.

    I send my best greetings from Reykjavik

  • School fire

    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

    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

    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.

    hi i am hoping to get your help with a disable woman who was hit by a drunk driver at age 6 here is her story it was air locally on KRDO new here in Colorado Springs.Co (KRDONews@krdo.com) http://dorotheabriers.causevox.com/ please in the name of Jesus if you can help you can reach us at anginitahilton@gmail.com God Bless you.

    Ive noticed how many families need your help and that this probably another review that might pass your way. My name is glarymir rivera im 27 years old, but its not me that need your help is for my wonderful parents, it has been the only home that we actually call home my parents dont want to get rid of it because we have had so many memories from good to bad. My dad is a long time veteran he is 55yrs old and works at the airport for several years as a maintenance driver and has recently got another job as an inspector for U.S cable because even though sounds good my parents are at financial point where they have even filed bankrupt. I love my parents so much they have done the impossible for all of us and everyone, but the problem is they dont have enough money to remodel their home to where they would be happy and satisfied especially my mom im afraid that one day the home that we all lived in would be demolished. ive never asked for anyones help and im not sure if this would be a waste of time but if this is really true and possible my GOD, what a blessing would it be for my parents.
  • Please build us a house for us in India

    Hi, my name is Ramya Mogili. I live in Andhra Pradesh, India. My family and I watch the Extreme Makeover- Home Edition everyday on BBC Entertainment. We love your show! You have made so many families happy. You made their dreams come true. It really is an encouragement for struggling families all around the world. My family is one such instance. You have really given us a chance to be excited about. My family comprises of four members. My dad, mom, my younger sister and myself. My dad was diagnosed with brain tumor in 2000 when we were living in the States. My dad was operated on and the doctors had to remove 25% of his brain which was affected. They had to leave in some tumor because when they tried to touch it, my dad was not able to speak or move the right part of his body. So they left some part of the tumor in his brain. The doctors advised him full rest. My dad had to resign from his job and we had to move back to India in 2002. By god's grace, he is doing great, although he is still on medication. A year and a half back, my dad was severely attacked my seizures, which he would have at least 7 times a day. The doctors increased his dose to drive the seizures away, which by god's grace have stopped, and he feels sleepy a lot. My mom is the only one who works. She works for a charitable organization. She was struggling to make ends meet, with buying dad's medications, paying school and college fees, etc. But God has been faithful to our family. We live in an old portion of a house, which is ours. Its pretty old and we don't have the money to renovate it. Our bathrooms don't have light, the electrical lines are faulty, we have frequent phase cuts because our lines are so faulty. Please help us. We really need your help. I finished my B.Tech (engineering), and I'm currently looking for a job. My sister is going to pursue B.D.S(Bachelor in Dental Sciences) and we need financial help. My mom's burdens would reduce so much if you guys help us. Please. Thank you.

  • Parents do know best

    My parents need a home make over. The live in very small run down house. For as long as I can remember they have always put themselves last in order to help out other people. They have given people money, places to stay, cars, food and/or much needed help in other ways. I feel so strongly that it is time someone helps them because they can't help themselves for helping other people. Gotta Love them,

  • find house to bring my disabled son & his family home to

    Hello to anyone who could help us.

    my son and I built a log cabin back in 1995. In 2005 he was diagnosed with MS and because SS Disability took so long to take effect, we almost lost the house to foreclosure and so we had to sell it (something that bothers him to this day because he cannot do those things anymore). They sold everything they had to move to a climate that was the same temp every day to see if it would help (that was to Hawaii) but it hasn't helped at all, as a matter of fact he is so much worse now. His arms and legs do not work anymore and has trouble eating. His is very depressed because he cannot provide for his family. His wife and daughter try very hard to take care of him by themselves, but it is getting physically hard for them to even get him out of the house. she also cannot find work because of having to be his sole caretaker. We are trying to get him back to NJ where we have plenty of family to help in his care. I (his mom)have been frantically searching to find them a home to rent, that is suitable to him having a wheelchair. I have alot of people who have donated furniture but we have no house for them yet. I work seven days a week to help support them. If you know anyone who could help me/us, i would be truly grateful. Their daughter (my grandaughter who is going to be 15 and a sophomore in September). All her friends from the grade school she attended before they moved, now attend a new high school (Cedar Creek) and thats the school district where i am looking for a home for them. They are desperate and I am at a loss. Even if you have any suggestions, i would be truly grateful. Thank you so much.

  • Please help.

    My name is sydney. I have a 2 sisters and a brother. im 14 my oldest sister is 21 and my other sister is 18. me and brother are irish twins im only 360 days older than him, hes 13. my mother is in her late 30's and my dad i think in mid 40's. my dad has a day drop during the week and does side jobs as well for heating and air cond. my mom has three jobs. she has 2 night jobs and 1 day job that gos from about 6 in the morning to about 6 in the afternoon. my mom gets every othere weekend off and gets occasional days during the week off her night job so she can at least sleep a little bit. my oldest sister is working towards the same job my mom has and thats a nurse. shes still in school and has a bad back which has taken her out of work for a while. we live in a in a house that is very old. were not allowed to stay in the basement for long because the mold makes it hard to breathe after a while and the roof is falling apart as well. im alllergic to bees but mostly wasps and all year round (not much winter) wasps find there way inside which terrifies me because if i get stung i have to use an epi pen which means i have to stab myseelf in the leg and ive never had to use it and i never want to. my mom has bee working so hard for years to try to pay for the bills and everything but mostly to get a new house. shes been trying to save enough money for redoing the house. the one thing thats probably stopping her the most is her shoulder. about 4 years ago she got in a motorcycle accident and i believe her shoulder was ran over. the docter she had before told her her shoulder was fine but as the years went on she had gotten severe artheritis and now another doctor has told her that its gottin to the point were she cant do sergury on it. it hurts her alot and i hate seeing my mom pushing her self too hard when she's also in pain. and me and my 18 year old sister have costed her alot in medical bills. my sister has had to go to the doctors because of many illnesses and i have for my ribs because they're deformed and move alot. it feels like theyre piercing through my skin and alot of times it feels like a cramp that will never go away and sometimes makes it hard to breathe and lay down but in acouple years when i stop growing ill be able to get surgery to fix it. as much as i want it i know it will cost my mom alot of money which means shell have to save even more. and all i really want is for my mom to be able to take a break and actually hang out with her friends and get the sleep she needs and not working 24/7. please help if you can, thank you!

  • We need a blessing

    I am writing this letter to tell you about someone that is a mother , mother in law , grandmother and my mentor . This person that I'm talking about has tooken in so many strangers , family members , homeless people and animals this person I am talking about is my mothers mom her name is Helen Berry she will feed you , counsel you , give you a place to stay , there is so many things she's done that it won't fit on one page. As of today my nana takes care of me and my three siblings 16,10,7,2 because my mom is on life support icu in hill crest medical center in Tulsa Oklahoma and my grandmother came to retrieve us from the hospital to take us back with us to live with her in a one bathroom three bedroom house nd there are already three children and two adults that are already living in this house which is in poor conditions , she drives back and fourth to Tulsa to check on my mother , also before this happend her eldest sister and five adults and one child stayed there because they were homeless who recently her sister died in which multiple families stayed there with my grandma. Before that she took care of my great great grandfather until he died. She tries to make what little income she makes stretch. Her health is not good now due to high blood pressure , arthritis , and other things . I think she will continue to help people until she takes her last breath. She still continues to persevere on no matter what her health is she will help. I know she deserves a home makeover . This will really make her happy and show her how much I trully appreciate all the things shes done for me and others. And maybe with this new house she can finally take us to Disney world like she promised us.....sincerely Jamaica Owens 405-795-8204 or 405-528-1641
  • Moving Forward but never forgetting

    Hello, my name is Maria. I am 27 years old & have 5 beautiful children & a awesome husband that is very supportive of all my family has been thru. I am asking for help for my family because I would like to truely have a home for my children & my parents could be comfortable in a also a fresh start in the rememberance of the losses we just recently faced. Well her I go alittle bit about us && our family & why I ask for your help. We live in a small town not to far from corpus christi,tx. My parents, my niece, myself, my children & my parents. Our home is a 4 bedroom for 10 of us with not enough space but we make the best of it. My parents are disabled my mother has lost several toes due to being a diabetic & is not able to walk alone or even cook for herself & not having a tub or shower to accomidate her needs. She has trouble walking in her walker & often trios over herself. Things are really rough for her & well as us. Cause when your parents suffer you as a child suffer.My father has always been a hardworkingman to provide for his family until he got carpal tunal syndrome & had an operatation on both hands that did not help him in anyway. He survived beeing in a coma for a month or long having a trache & feeding tube for about 6 months. My parents have always struggled & learned to keep moving forward no matter how hard life is. This past december my nephew passed away after commiting suicide in the backyard of our house & my 5 yr old daughter found him hanging from a rope as she looked out the back door early december 16th a day after his birthday. We often look in the living room of our house hoping to see him like we use to before but we face reality & know he is has gone. During the preprations of my nephews funeral service my older sister grew ill & we could not get her to see the doctor til after her sons services my nephew. she finally went in ths day after the burial && never came back home we remember everthing we talked about for christmas & planned for her return home with in the next couple of days && she never made it home she passed away 8 days after my nephew did. We have lost so much the house where we could all share laughs, love && even just family dinners into a house of pain, hurt & tears. I would love for this house to be our home again a home of remebrance to our family, our nephew, our sister & to the love we use to feel in this house. To hear the laughter of our family once again & learn to move forward past the hurt & pain thank you. I would really love to hear from you_E

  • Thanks allot !!

    I am Minakshi from Bangalore India.

    I am here just to say thanks allot to you all who are doing such a great job through this TV Show and helping who are really in need of your help.

    I am watching this show since 6 months and feel in each episode that one day I will also try to do such kind of things in my life for at least few people.

    I lost my father when I was only 20yes old when I was in final year of my graduation and in this situation I stared working to get money to fulfill my family's need. My father was an honest officer of postal dept. He passed away in 2002 due to bone cancer.after my father me and my younger sister started taking care of my family of 8 members .After 6 years I thought we both have to get marry and ask my elder brother to take care of our family and found a role in my office for him. We found one nice person for my younger sister and she got married then I thought about myself and found a decent person through matrimony site. we were in love for almost 1 and half years and finally got married with both family's agreement. unfortunately within four days of our marriage I came to know that he is suffering from blood cancer and within 15 days we got admitted in hospital and after one and three months when I returned from hospital I was alone. But I decided not to go back to my or his home town and start a normal life again as my love took promise from me to stare a new life after him. I struggled and now I am on my feet and trying to help my family who are strangling to live a normal life due to financial problem.

    I have written this long story only to tell that I have gone through lot and understand the situation of those people who are going through different different type of difficulties . you people are there to help them as they are in need of you. I can understand whatever you people are doing for them. Really you people are doing great job.

    congratulation and thanks allot .
