Release from ABC Entertainment:
The “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” team descends on Wichita, Kan., to deliver a new home to the Hall family. The family of six was hit hard by tragedy on June 26, 2010, when a car accident left dad, Carl, paralyzed from the shoulders down.
Unfortunately, Carl’s condition made it impossible for him to continue on in their bi-level home, which contained door frames that were not wheelchair-accessible and dangerous stairs that made it impossible to move in and around the house. As a result, the family was forced to leave their home and move to a rented condo. This week the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” designers will give Carl back some independence and a new home to rehab in so that his family can move past this tragedy, onto a brighter, healthier future.
The Hall family represents a slice of Americana. Carl married his high school sweetheart, Stacey, and together they created the ultimate team. Megan (16), Maddie (14), Logan (11) and McLaine (9) all followed in dad’s footsteps by participating in team sports and enjoying mom’s perfect cheer from the sidelines.
“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” is on deck and ready to hit this one out of the park for the Hall family’s “It Ain’t Over ‘til It’s Over” episode. Along with community volunteers and Bob Cook Homes, team leader Ty Pennington, designers Paul DiMeo, Paige Hemmis and Jillian Harris will rebuild their home so that this team can get back on track and focus on the road to recovery.
