Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's Michael Moloney on The Gomez Family

This week we came together in South Jordan, Utah to help the Gomez family, a single mother Jessica and her children, Jonah and Ellie. Jonah is fighting two blood diseases, one of them being sickle cell, and for a seven-year-old boy it's really taxing and it wears him down.  He has to have oxygen all the time and he can't keep up with his friends.  So, it's important that he has a home where the air is clean, and that he has access to oxygen whenever he needs it. One day he will need a bone marrow transplant and it's really important that we find the match as soon as possible because you don't know when that day's going to come. read more

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's Michael Moloney on the Mattingly Family

This week Extreme is in Davis County, Kentucky to meet the Mattingly family — as well as Clint Black, our "Get On The Bus" celebrity volunteer.

Two years ago, Steve Mattingly was responding to a fire call at a neighborhood home, where he was asked to direct traffic around the site. Steve's wife Melissa was driving by the fire when disaster struck. Steve was hit full speed, by a car that didn't see him. An EMT herself, Melissa immediately got out of her car and ran to care for her husband. In the days following, Steven had suffered multiple injuries, brain damage and amnesia. To date, Steven has had seven surgeries to try to repair the damage. Thank God Melissa was there, she saved his life, she knew what to do. They both know what to do when they 're the first ones on the scene of an accident like that. He wasn't supposed to make it, but she made sure he did.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's Michael Moloney on the Hill Family

This week we're in Suffield, Connecticut to pay a visit to the Hill Family. Known to local admirers as the "family choir," the 13 Hill family members — William and Catherine along with their sons, daughters, nieces and nephews — have motivated friends and neighbors with their musical talents, academic achievements and selfless generosity. Cramped living conditions and sorely needed electrical, plumbing, roof and other home repairs have continued to take a backseat to helping those in need and providing a good education for the children. Five of the Hill siblings and cousins living at home are college students, and the family also scrimps and saves to provide medical treatment and care in their home for cousin Shamia, who received a kidney transplant from daughter Sonia... read more

Extreme Makeover Helps Keep Kids Together in New Home

This week finds us in Greene County, Mo. where Chris and Niki Hampton were happily living in a 792 sq. ft. house with their 9-year-old son Dakota and 6-year-old daughter Hannah (cramped but content). Then, the Hamptons got a phone call from Social Services. Niki's sister's four children had been taken by the state, and Chris and Niki had one hour to decide whether they could take in their nieces and nephews, or let them go to a foster family. They knew immediately that they had to take in Jacob, Lexi, Kira and Gage. Though they weren't sure how eight people could squeeze into the tiny one-bedroom, one-bathroom house, the Hamptons knew that they needed to take those kids in, or they would lose them into the system where they'd likely be separated. This week is about following through with their wish to keep those kids together, safe and create one big family unit.
