  • Address to mail a letter

    Does anyone know the mailing address to send letters, to the Extreme MakeOver, Home Edition, when asking if they can help a family in need? Posting on line is just not the way I can do this. I know of a family, in need, & posting where anyone can read, I just feel wouldn't be the right thing to do. Or if anyone knows of any other way to send a letter, even by email or private message, this would be helpful. I should have wrote long ago, but I was praying things would get better, for the family who are in need, but they are in more need of 'home improvement', then ever before. Thank you!
  • I wish.....

    My name is Siobahn "Bonnie" Miller. I am a 31-year-old woman who is a divorcee. I am in the Army National Guard. I live with my mom,dad, sister and nephew in a 3-bedroom home. Their names are Mark, Ann, Brianne, and Landon Watson.. When I was in basic training, we found out that my mother, who has always been our glue, has cancer. Last week, one of the spots they found, turned out to be Melanoma. It is the worst stage of skin cancer. We have lived in our house for 14 years, survived 4 grandchildren, my divorce, a nasty custody battle, rats eating through the electrical lines, my mom's medical bills and medication and numerous other things that would normally devistate anyone's family. My dad has been the sole bread winner for soo many years because my mom can't work. I joined the military for two reasons: Patriotism, and the most important, to help my family. The bank has decided that my family is a liability to them and forclosed on their mortgage. They have to move by June. I am not asking for help for me or my sister, but my parents put all four of us through a private school while working two full-time jobs, attended basketball, valleyball, soccer games and numerous plays and cheerleading peps. All they asked of us was that we would try to remember the values they fought so hard to instill in us. My parents were Navy sailors. I thought it would only be right that I try to follow. I am only 4'10 and wasn't supposed to get into the military. By week two of Basic, my name was known all over Post as the soldier to watch. I was given the highest honor from the post Commander on graduation day. My mom is mine and my sister's best friend. They should be in a house with a healthier atmosphere, no rats, and enough room for all of them to be comfortable. The most important thing they deserve, is a space where Mom and Dad can escape and seriously relax.....ignore the worry of cancer even for a few minutes and just go back to being them. I am asking for help for the two people in my life who never turned away from us. I am asking for my parents. Please, Ty. Please, help my parents........If you can help, please call 843-801-0362
  • Help give my family our life back

    To begin I am a wife and a mother. We had a normal life, 2 good jobs, a house, 2 cars in a nice neighborhood. I was like super mom, I played with all the kids in the neighborhood, we had a pool that everyone came to swim in, I coached my daughters softball team, everything was about family and community. Then tragedy struck. Where I was working I had been being sexually assualted by my boss. I did not know what to do, it was like being tortured in every way possible. After time a few other woman that worked there and he was doing it to decided to go forward and report it, and I did the same. When I had to sit there and explain all that happened to me, I had a complete meltdown. For months I could barely get out of bed. I tryed to stay at my job, but there was retaliation there and I could not take it, so I had to leave. Within a few months things were just falling apart. I was suffering from Post traumatic stress syndrome, severe depression, dissassociation syndrome. In time loss began, we lost our home, our cars, everything. It has really damaged my daughter also, she has grown into a shell, that cannot be broken. I had opened a case against the man that did this to me and the agency I worked for through human rights, but after a year and a week before trial they informed me that the most they could go for is 20 thousand dollars. It was to late to pursue other avenues, so I ended up settling for 15 thousand dollars, which really didnt even cover my medical and medications. I took what I could and bought a run down trailer on a crappy piece of property, and that is where we live. I feel like I have let down my whole family, and I feel like it is all my fault. Our home needs alot of work and we just cannot afford it. I do not leave the house much because of my depression and fears. I gained over 100 pounds since all of this and my psychiatrist says its because I want to make myself unapproachable. I believe that is right. We have lost everything in our life and I would be so grateful if you could find it in your heart to help us get some of our life back. We also have 5 dogs, 4 that we had rescued over the years. Our animals are our life and since we had to leave where we were, it is not fair to them to have such little space. They are part of our family and we love them very much. I just want my and our life back. I want my daughter to be happy again. I want her to have a space that she can be happy in again. Please help us. We do not want much, even if you could just makeover our trailer into a space to be proud of. Anything would be great. Please get back to us as soon as possible. God bless you for what you do, and know how thankful all these families are.

  • Deserving Family!

    Hello my name is Whitney. As most kids that go off to college, I picked a college 3 hours away from home. I don't get to go home to often and I am realize how much my family has went through and how much they give to me. My mom got Cancer when she was around 24 and my Dad got in a car accident when he was 25. My Dad is a farmer and he has one arm, as you can image it was a big change to do everything he has to do with just one arm. You can see the strength my parents have had to have to get through these problems. It doesn't stop at that. My Dad would do anything to help a stranger and my mom would give everything she could away to help a total stranger. They are really good people. My sister at age 23 is going through a divorce, so she moved home with two kids. The oldest is 3 and the other is 2. My mother has always had 2 or 3 jobs raising 3 kids and she never once missed a game. She works every chance she gets still to put me and my brother through college. She always tells us that she wants us to get that education so we don't have to work 2 or 3 jobs and can enjoy our families. My mom is really my role model in life. She doesn't just stop at working all the time for us, she helps with my sisters kids every chance she gets. I swear that lady never sleeps or takes any time to herself. I just wish I could give her a nice house to come home to after a long of work. As you can image my house is a old farm house. I don't think the bathroom/shower upstairs has been fix for 3 years now and you can't use the upstairs shower since it leeks really bad. It has gotten so bad that it is rotting out the ceiling in the living room downstairs. There isn't enough room for my sister and her two kids, let alone if me and my brother when come home for school breaks. Right now my sister sleeps with her kids in the same room. I feel like my parents don't deserve this living situation. They are hard working and giving people that seem to never get ahead in life. I just wish I could give them the home that they deserve. I didn't even mention how our barn is falling apart for the last 3 years and either just isn't much of anything to do. My dad loves to work on four wheelers and things like that, but I haven't seen him get to enjoy that for the longest time. I just feel like a new home and barn would help easy the situation at home.The tension from living all together is so high. It really makes everything so hard to deal with. When I come home it isn't that happy home I remember. It seems my dad and mom and sister fight all the time just about nothing. Please help me save my family. I don't like to air my problems on people, so this is a lot for me to ask for your help. I ask please for my whole family.

  • My Grandmother needs your help!

    Hello, My name is Lorissa I'm 16 years old. My Grandmother, Mother of three children. Two of her kids are very far away, therefore My dad is left to take care of her because her husband passed away.He fought his battle at home for awhile, but as soon as he got sent to the hospital he passed away within a week, July 30,2011. At Veteran Medical Affairs Hospital.

    He died of lung cancer, he fought a hard battle. My Grandpa was a hardworking man. He served his country in the United States Coast Guard for 4 years. While working as a manager at the 7-11 convience store in Maryland. After he met my grandmother, they moved to North East. There my grandpa worked at Meadow Brook Dairy for 20 plus years. retiring in 2002. He owned at operated The White Diner on Main st. in North East. He also managed lawn maintence for 35 years for Dave Thornton Rental and Real Estate. As a hardworker he was, he also was a volunteer fireman with Fuller Hose North East for 20 years. He joined the department in 1970 and severed for 5 years, completeing all essential firefighting training. He recomminted to service in 1996, and decided to take a path of Fire Police. Serving 3 terms of secretary, 1 term as assistaint secertary, and one term as a lieutenant and a Fire Police Captain. Helped managing the annual "Cherry Fest". he served as a chairman for the past 12 years. Jack was voted Outstanding Fireman by his peers in 2004, and in 2008. He recently got an award for "Fireman of the year" serving in 2 diffrent Fire Deparments. Fuller Hose company #1, and Cresent Hose company #2. They chose him for his service to North East community,country, and setting an example and blazing a trail in the firefighter's postion. When he won that award he was fighting the battle of cancer for awhile. He was put in the hospital soon after this happened cancer struck him hard, within a week he had passed. My grandmother is now alone, keeping a 2 story house by herself as cluttered as it is, it is rather dirty. She also has babysitted her whole life, while babysitting 6 kids at a time 5 days a week gives her stress with all the other things that she has to take responibilty for. She is still babysitting kids till this day, she likes to keep herself busy. The kids don't really have anywhere to play. the back yeard is small, and has a creek, with a hill and no fence. Which makes my grandma worry everytime they go outside. they love riding bikes, but its hard because theres no room. there's barley any room in her kitchen for all the kids to eat. he kitchen is rather cluttered. she shoves her dishes in her stove. her fridge is so messy. she has 3 fridges for all her food. Her stove is rather old, which is sad because she loves to cook in her spare time. she has bugs in her house too, she always had a ant problem which is rather gross. My grandpa tried fixing it but nothing ever worked. Her bathroom is small. her she has an upstairs filled with junk from her kids when they were younger. she wants to redo her whole house, but it will take alot of work. Her panty you can barley walk in, and her basement is tough to get into cause of all the junk in the pantry. She's been asking my dad to help her clean out her whole house and repaint and move things around. My dad has enough stress taking care of his own family. Please consider my Grandmother for Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Thank You (: -Her Granddaughter Lorissa Yohe
  • My Aunt Needs Your Help

    My name is Amber I am 17 years old and my great aunt sadie needs your help. A few years ago she adopted her granddaughter Casey, after a life of abuse from her mother Casey was finally safe. But my Aunt didn't stop there. Casey's younger sister Raychel was in a foster home where she was beaten to the point of almost death, after my Aunt Sadie found out she took Raychel out of that foster home and to the doctor. What they found wasn't good and shocked us all. Because of all of the abuse that Raychel suffered through had caused a tumor to form on her brain. Raychel had to have brain sergury and was in a comma for months, when she finally came out of it she couldn't talk or walk. She was bound to a wheelchair for months and she had to relearn how to talk. But she is doing so much better now. She can walk with a cane and she can't stop talking, she is a bundle of joy and a real life mirakle. However my aunt and cousins live in a tiny two bedroom trailor with an addition for Raychel. The house is very small and hard so Raychel to move around in when she uses her wheelchair. My Aunt is retired and my Uncle works nights at a plant. They don't make alot of money so they can't afford to fix up the house or get a bigger one. My aunt has gone above and beyond what she should have to do and feel that she deserves a newer and bigger home, I also think that have a bigger house will be great for Raychel's progress and recovery. I hope you guys do to. Please e-mail at prissykitty_12@yahoo.com, if you think the same.

    Thank you,

My mum has to boil up the kettle just to make the bath hot and even then it isn't that deep. My mum has many disabilities in her hand and she struggles to cook or doing parts of the house work. My mum would be thrilled and over joyed if you could come to Italy, Sicily to fix our house and mostly fix our hearts.

  • its too late for us, but not our community!!!!

    Ty I wrote to your show years ago asking for your help! No one has ever replied, now my husband is close to retirement from the Marines, the bank will probably get my house and we will have to go, but you have to help do something about the hospitals in this area PLEASE!!!!

    My mom died from Cancer, I have had it, I am an RN, I work with both children and adults, in the Oncology field, ER, and Recovery room. I am getting ready to start a new contract as a travel nurse at Kaiser In LA because the hospitals in this area are so bad I wont and cant work in them. They have tried or so they say for years to build/open newer, larger more up to date/better run facilities in the area but something ALWAYS blocks it or it takes YEARS to complete. I have had many doctors tell me if I finished my nurse Practitioner they would open an oncology clinic out here and have me run it with my family, you see I have a 27 year old partially disabled son, his 2 children and their mother live with me, she is training to be a med assistant, and my son has been doing counter/ and books etc for years, my husband a special op marine also has been an instructor, office personel and warehouseman and supply, I also have my 18 year old son, 14 yr old daughter, and my sons friend living with us. But what I am begging you to do is please take a look and see if maybe someway you can help to improve the medical facilities available to people in this area. as I said it is too late for us as the bank wont work with us we have tried to hire 3 different people now and yet they refuse to lower anything, they just keep taking houses away in this area, even though we have been here since 2004, and of course bought way high and now the house is worth less than half of what we owe wells fargo will not budge. My husband and I as well as our children will continue to do community service and help our fellow marines in need until such time as they drag us from this house, but we truly beg you to consider seeing if there is something you can do to maybe open a small clinic close by. I have many friends that have said they will volunteer time as well along with us to help care for the people at least part of the time. I thank you for your time and thank you all for all the wonderful things you have done for so many deserving people. You are all truly wonderful big hearted and talented people. Take care Aloha, Toni and family

    My name is Rilee I am 14, I have two sisters, Myranda 11, Raegan 17. We were raised by our mother, Stephanie Sweek she is 38 and struggling to find a job in our small county. We currently have a place to live as of a week ago. But its not permanent. In June of 2010 my mom had a Grandmal Seziure, Semptember 22nd of 2010 she had Viral Meningitis, February of 2011 she had Mastoiditis, and finally last night, January 10th, she suffered another grandmal seziure. Also April 25th of 2011 I had back surgery because I suffer from scoliosis. I was in the hospital for 5 days in the bend pedeatric unit with 2 rods and 26 screws straightening out my spine. My mom had to stay in the hospital with me and then for two more weeks in the Ronald McDonald house. This whole time my sisters were staying with my grandma at our house 130 miles away. Our town has a population of 2,338 people and i was not able to have surgery at our small, basic hospital. So we had to stay in Bend for three weeks total. The whole time my mom is trying to cope and deal with this mostly by herself. She was also struggling to pay the bills and get my sisters and grandma food for our house so they could eat. When I finally got home I had three months of recovery time to go. In June my big sister who was 16 at the time was sneaking out and going to parties without my mother's consent. She was trying to take care of me, control Raegans behavior and give enough attention to my 11 year old sister with little help. Raegan ended up moving to her friends house because she didn't like the rules. It was very hard on all of us and we were worried about her. Then in September we got evicted from our house and had to move to my grandparents. It wasn't working out so we moved out to our aunts house hoping that my mom could find a job and get back on her feet. On December 12th 2011 we moved to Prairie City and got a house with her boyfriend. He bailed on us and we are now living at my cousins house back in John Day. We are getting moved into a new house with my uncle that he owns and he and my mom are going to split the bills. This is not a permanent arangement though and we need help. Right now the only way we are surviving is on 100 dollars of child support and limited food stamps. thank you.
  • Inspirational story for single parents? fulltime working single mom with 2 children with autism/aspergers. I have no Family that lives close to me.

    I was told by Childrens Psychologist that i am an Inspiration to all single parents that work. While sitting in the doctors office with my two children, there case manager( for autistic/aspergers children) came in to the doctors office & was asking questions. I told her my story & she asked me if I could rent an apartment plus take care of my House, I started crying, I said to my son we will apply for home extreme make over. Heres my story:

    I am a single parent raising two children with disabilities my son was diagnosed with severe autistim, he is now high functional autistic. My daughter was diagnosed with aspergers.I have worked full time raising my two children on my own ( relationship did not work out & father is not in the picture at all). I bought my house on my own in 1999, I kept working so my children have a home to call there own. I have no family close to me they are all over an hour a way and have severe health problems. Why working full time (8-4) when I get home from work there is a TSS workers & behavioral specialist come to the house. I have try to do my own repairs to my home fixing floors & painting, while doing yard work, & outside maintenance, the stone foundation is starting to crumble, I have used cement to try to fix it.. Electric is bad, we have black mold on the ceiling & cement floor. The kids have not slept in there rooms for 6 years they sleep in living room due to electric, and it gets very cold in there bedrooms. The heaters work but i have old stone rooms underneath there bedrooms, I have insulated the ceiling in the stone room, the septic is blocked & running down the drive way, I have spent money on chemicals to open the drain field & I have had it pumped recently still blocked .Recently I have been blacking out in my house I found out I have severe hypoglycemia, with diet & medicine I am doing better. I have had termites but could not afford the termite service. I have had my trees cut down around the property, that has helped. Since my roof leaks. I have had people fall through the roof in canning room & on the top floor of the garage, my insurance will not cover this. My daughter had a hair analylst to see what vitamins she was lacking to help with her behaviors with aspergers (psychologist suggested this) & the nutrionalist called me desperately & said she had high arsenic levels, its like she was playing in it .I had DEP, enviromentalist tested ground & water, & they think it is coming from the addition that was put on the house. But the DEP had no suggestions or help are available. The gentleman died of cancer that put the addition on he used wood from train companies back in the 1960's. I am alone, I am scared, I make to much to get help but I live pay check to pay check. We have helped donate gifts to people and children with special needs . It makes my children so happy to give to others.We as a family took in pugs retrained them to find them good loving homes for free. Recentlymy childrens school heard about what we have done & would like my son & my daughter to train dogs for special needs & the blind for service dogs, my children would love to do this to give back, we work great as a family helping animals. But my house is literally falling apart. I cant do this till my house is safer. I only have 9 years to have it paid off. Any suggestions ? Please. tesinger@verizon.net
