Season 9

Episode 3Rucker Family

Ty and the team roll down to Madison, Georgia, to build a home for a young hero. Nine-year-old Anaiah Rucker is an athletic, thoughtful straight-A student with the dream of attending Harvard and becoming a doctor or lawyer. That dream was threatened on February 4, 2011, when Anaiah saved her five-year-old sister, Camry, by pushing her out of the path of an oncoming truck, and was struck herself, sustaining life-threatening injuries. A true hero, Anaiah is undaunted by these injuries. She has endured the amputation of her left leg and grueling rehab so she can continue playing sports, singing in her chorus, and studying hard. Happy to have her best friend and sister Camry safe and sound, Anaiah and her family are focused on becoming stronger than ever.

Beloved by all who know her, Anaiah has been showered with affection and support by the small community of Madison. The town has rallied around this heroine, helping her family however they can. Kids at school, community groups, and strangers from around the world have reached out to Anaiah with letters of encouragement and fundraising events, and celebrities Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres have told her story. Anaiah’s act of selfless courage clearly has struck a chord.

Although they have few resources, the Rucker family retains a positive, inspiring attitude. The only thing they need is a replacement of their decrepit and non-accessible house. Ty and the team set out to build them one so Camry, Anaiah, and also Andrea can keep pursuing their educational dreams.

The Rucker’s new kitchen includes KraftMaid Onyx cabinets with glass inserts. The laundry room features cabinets in Vintage Willow; in the family room/library, the finish is Chocolate. Biscotti with Cocoa Glaze is the star of the master bathroom, while Dove White with Bistro glass inserts brightens the girls’ bathroom.
