Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
It all began with a television producer’s phone call asking KraftMaid to help a deserving family in need of a fresh start. Seasons later, we are proud to remain the exclusive cabinetry provider of ABC’s award-winning program, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Episode 2Gomez Family
This week, the team heads to South Jordan, Utah, to meet a fun-loving little boy who dreams of becoming a professional soccer player. Jonah Gomez' love of life is not diminished by two blood disorders that have left him in need of a bone marrow transplant. His mother Jessica and younger sister Ellie have made every effort to help Jonah live life to the fullest. When he isn't practicing soccer, he's on the sidelines cheering for his favorite soccer team, Real Salt Lake, whose players have become his protective friends and supporters.
The Gomez family is beloved in their community, which has rallied around the family to help keep Jonah healthy while also spreading the word about the importance of bone marrow donorship. So far there has been no bone marrow match for Jonah. He faces a tougher challenge than most because he is of Latin descent, and statistically fewer minorities join the National Marrow Donor Program.
With all the medical bills, the family is grateful to live with Jessica's mother. But a house of their own would ease Jonah's daily oxygen treatments and give them some privacy. So Ty and the team set out to help relieve some of the family's burden by building them their own home, while raising awareness about the need for minority bone marrow donorship. The new house not only has plenty of room for the family, but also includes an income property Jessica can rent out to help pay off the medical bills.
The beautiful new main house features KraftMaid cabinetry in several rooms. In the kitchen and master bathroom, Malibu Slab (AW) cherry doors in Honey Spice are featured. Dove White cabinetry in the Malibu Slab (ML) door style is the star of the new laundry room. And in the apartment, Malibu Slab (ML) Maple Parchment cabinetry anchors the new kitchen.
