Extreme Makeover

Show Summary

Extreme Makeover follows the stories of the lucky individuals who are chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be given a truly "Cinderella-like" experience: a real life fairy tale in which their wishes come true, not just by changing their looks, but their lives and destinies. This magic is conjured through the skills of an "Extreme Team," including the nation's top plastic surgeons, eye surgeons and cosmetic dentists, along with a talented team of hair and makeup artists, stylists, and personal trainers, led by an on-camera Extreme Makeover expert. This season will feature more "news you can use" tips about fashion, hair and makeup for the home viewers also, so they, too, can experience a little bit of the show's magic. Each self-contained episode features two people, seen first in their "before" phase, then as they undergo their various procedures, and finally, in a climactic unveiling - the "after" -when the candidates reveal their new selves to their families and friends.

      HI Ty, I have watched you for years and I have always been so touched by your kindness for others. I know you reach out to special needs children and this is why I am writing this letter to you in hopes it will reach you by some miracle this is at least my 8th letter to you, but this time i am sending it to you on the wings of an angle and his name is Isaiah.



      Isaiah is my grandson, he is a special needs little man... he was born with mitts, all his fingers where fused together, he has had some surgeries to separate them at shiners children's hospital, he also has skin lacing, heart problems, kidney and lung problems, autism, focal seizures, and non verbal. Isaiah has to be in a temp of 68 -72 or he passes out. I am writing you in hopes you can help me build a indoor play ground for him, I am not asking you to pay for it but to design and build it, I have managed to save a little money up over the past couple of years, i have 4,700 I know its not a lot but its all I have, this summer was so sad that I just cried when i walked into my little mans bdrm and he was looking out the window at his sisters and the little boys next to me playing on the swing-set and he was crying, i asked him what was wrong and he singed to me that he wanted to go out side and play, I just held him and cried with him and told him it was to hot for him outside but we could play inside, how do you tell a 5 year old he can not play out side when the other kids are.



      i own my home and was thinking there must be away to build a indoor play ground for him, the house is 2500 sq feet and i have a large garage maybe i could use that or i have a very large bdrm I am willing to give up.



      i lost my husband a few years ago and have raised my 5 girls on my own with out any help until 4 years ago when a car ran a stop sing at 57 miles per hour and t boned me and I had to have my leg until then i always had 2 or 3 jobs and due to the surgeries i am still unable to work but i have managed to put a little money to the side for a new van but i think this is more important right now, if you could find it in your busy life to help us i would be forever grateful to you.



      from a grand mothers heart. 815 -719-9918

      My Lead Technician at work is a Disbeled Veteran who is the primary breadwinner in her home has a small child /4yrs at home and another child that is a College Student.

      We work on a Military Installation supporting our troops daily. My Lead is dealing with and has overcome many adversities during her Military career as well as after the Military. Because she has a tight schedule and is constantly and always committed to one task or another at work and at home, she has allowed herself to move out of the Fashion light! She wears jeans, khakis, t-shirts, hard toe shoes for the most part daily. She very rarely gets to go out to enjoy herself with her mate or with the girls for a nite out of fun! Normally, her hair styles are just basic with little to the imagination. I would like to see her get a chance to get all dolled up and strut her stuff on a nite or some nites out occasionally. I believe and feel that anyone who receives your Extreme makeover has allowed themselves to explore some of the many facets that are and have been hidden. If you could allow my Lead to receive one of your makeovers, I believ this would not only boost her confidence in her daily walk, but would allow her to experience some of the joys that have been missing in her life for many years. I feel this opportunity would also bring new adventures and attractions in her personal relationships. This Veteran is also a spokeperson for the Source America and the Ability One Programs for Disabled Persons and Disabled Veterans providing Disabled Veterans and Disabled persons the opportunities to obtain and maintain gainful employment. She also makes visits on Capital Hill / before Congress. This would do wonders in the advancement of this Veteran in her Professional and Personal Life!!! Please Help! Thank you

    • Kauffmans need help for Little Marcuslee

      10
      I know of a family that needs help and no matter how hard I try brick walls keep getting in the way. Our first thought was to build them a home and setup a go fund me account under Marcuslee and so far no luck. I have contacted everyone and tv personality I know for help. We are hoping maybe you can pull a few strings and help us build Marcus Lee and his family a home. They have the plans and a lot that they can trade for. We know we could build it from bottom to top for two hundred thousand with materials and us doing most of the labor. But we need help. We cannot even start without help. At this point we are at a loss and need your help. Please visit a houseformarcuslee, prayersformarcuslee and marcuslee on facebook and read his story and also visit the go fund me site marcus lee. It tells the story, our goals and ideas. Please help us as just to give you an idea of what the Kauffmans have endured they lost their farm due to medical bills a couple years after getting hit by a tornado. Marcus as I write this is at St Louis Childrens Hospital in PICU due to pneumonia, a rash, trachieitis and Rhino Virus. Please call Darlene at 417 356 0140 the Mom after you read the story and see how you can help. Just getting the word out will help as well to raise funds. Please help this familymoreless
