00:00:06Mm-hmm.

00:01:22If you could have a special room, what would you have it like?
00:01:27I would have it like these little trip lights all over the door.

00:08:11A deep ache all over.
00:08:13I found out that connected to our muscles are nerves that send messages through the body.
00:08:18My doctor diagnosed it as fibromyalgia, thought to be the result of overactive nerves that cause chronic, widespread pain.
00:08:24Lyrica is believed to calm these nerves.

00:08:33[ Female Announcer ] Lyrica is not for everyone.
00:08:35Lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions.

00:08:52Common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain, and swelling of hands, legs, and feet.
00:08:56Don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica.
00:08:58Don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you.

00:53:35They had five beautiful kids, another one on the way, and after 12 years of marriage, maryann and david just bought their first house.
00:53:41We had just bought this house, just before our 13th anniversary, and, um, it was quite a celebration for us.
00:53:47We went out to eat, we celebrated, we-- we were so happy.
00:53:51The place needed a lot of work, but it was theirs, and david had big plans for it.
00:53:56He jumped right in, started renovating, hoping to turn this house into their dream home.
00:54:00People even laughed at us because, "wow, this house " but we were determined that we were gonna add rooms on to it and make it big enough.
00:54:08Because we were renting here in armada, and we wanted to stay in armada so that my husband could continue to be on the volunteer fire department.
00:54:15He loved the fire department.
00:54:16He loved serving the community, and he did not want to move.
00:54:20(Ty) THEN AFTER JUST A FEW WEEKS OF WORKING On the house, david got sick.
00:54:24He ended up getting flu-like symptoms that he thought would pass, but they didn't.
00:54:28On christmas eve, david lay down next to his wife in bed, and ended up going into convulsions.
00:54:34I was just looking at him and thinking, wake up, wake up!
00:54:37I shook him and said, "david, david," but his eyes were rolling, and I yelled out for my daughter to call 9-1-1.
00:55:06(Ty) SO THAT NIGHT, MARYANN LOST HER HUSBAND And her best friend.
00:55:11I loved him with everything, and I still do.
00:55:14(Ty) AND IT GETS WORSE.
00:55:15Doctors believe that david's death was caused by an allergic reaction to toxic mold in his house.
00:55:22(cries) I MISS TALKING TO HIM...
00:55:25(sobbing) And playing with him.
00:55:29Doctors told maryann that she needed to move her kids out of that house immediately so they wouldn't suffer the same as david.
00:55:37Well, that's exactly what she did.
00:55:38They packed up that day and moved out immediately.
00:55:41(Maryann) NOW I'M LOST. I DON'T KNOW WHAT Happened.
00:55:43I lost my husband, now I'm lost.
00:55:46I'm just dreaming that you would come, but if you can't, you can't.
00:55:50But if you can, I would be so happy and so blessed.
00:55:55We need to build these guys a comfortable house where we can get this family back on track, and they can start focusing on being a family together and looking toward the future.
00:56:03So right now, we're headed to sister sarah's house, they have no idea we're coming, and I cannot wait to see the face-- that's awesome.
00:56:10What do you say, can we help this family out? yes!
00:56:13Yes, we have to.
00:56:14Put it in here, people. let's make it happen.
00:56:15Are you with me?
00:56:17(designers) YES. THEN LET'S...
00:56:18(all) DO IT!
00:56:24 here we go.
00:56:26(Eduardo) WE SURPRISED THE FAMILY AT SARAH'S House-- sarah's maryann's sister-- because that's where the family was staying at the time.
00:56:33They had been staying with different friends, and at this point in time,they were there with their aunt.
00:56:38Good morning, gilliam family!
00:56:40Maryann, abigale, gabriel, ariel, peter, naomi, sister sarah-- wake up and come on out here.
00:56:46Abigale, how are you?
00:56:49Oh, my god.
00:56:50Hello! how are you guys?
00:56:53Hi.
00:56:53Hi, guys.
00:56:55Aah! thank you.
00:56:56Oh, I'm so happy.
00:56:58(Tanya) HER FACE WAS JUST LIKE-- You could not have come any sooner.
00:57:02We needed you.
00:57:04(Ty) YOU GUYS ARE A LITTLE SURPRISED, ARE You?
00:57:06Yes, thank you. I want to go home.
00:57:08I want to go home, and this is my ticket.
00:57:10I get to see my husband's dream come true right before my eyes, AND THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. (Tanya) THEIR DREAM Was to own a home, and the sad thing is that this dream of owning a home is what ultimately resulted in david's death.
00:57:21(Ty) WHEN YOU SEE SOMEBODY THIS YOUNG Losing the love of her life, you just wouldn't want that to happen to anyone, especially on christmas eve and especially someone with six kids.
00:57:29And you want to do anything you can to help.
00:57:31Well, I can promise you this, we're gonna make sure yoguys geto go home.
00:57:35We're gonna work at it all this week in memory of him, and finally give you that dream house that you guys always wanted.
00:57:41The cool thing is, is that while we're building you guys a house, YOU GUYS ARE GOING ON VACATION. (cheering) You wanna know where you're going? yes!
00:00:01She is a tough little girl. mm-hmm.

00:00:27(Tanya) WE'RE HERE FOR SIEHERA, BUT WE REALLY Want to do something great for kevin and kyle.
00:00:31They're sweet little boys that have had to endure a lot.
00:00:33And they've really been scared for their sister, and it's time for them just to get something fun.
00:00:37If you could have a special room, what would you have it like?
00:00:43I would have it like these little trip lights all over the door.
00:00:47Sort of like a-- and then you need to scan your eye.
00:00:50What?
00:00:51 and stuff, and, uh, and booby traps. booby traps.
00:00:55And then they got this radar to see where they go.
00:00:58He likes to, you know, have little secret places and night vision and walkie-talkies and I thought, that's it.
00:01:04This kid's gotta have a spy room.
00:01:06So this is your room, dude? yep.
00:01:08So, buddy, you like to fish, huh? mm-hmm.

00:01:17No way. really?
00:01:18Kevin is a good kid.
00:01:20Helovesthe outdoors, and heloves,in his heart of hearts, fishing.
00:01:26Those times when you get to be with your dad, do you just-- mostly during hunting season.
00:01:31Yeah? I go with him a lot.
00:01:33Siehera's not the only one who's had to deal with this.
00:01:36The entire family, in their own ways, I didn't want to let him down.
00:01:42Give me some. let's do it.
00:01:43So this is your room? mm-hmm.
00:01:45So they've made this kind of airtight for you, have they?
00:01:48They've been trying. they've been trying?
00:01:50.. that's an air purifier?
00:01:52So that I can get fresh air.
00:01:54Because of her health condition, they've tried to keep pollutants out of her room, tried to give her a-- somewhat a healthy room.
00:02:00So you spend a lot of time in here?
00:02:02 most of-- most of the day, I do, actually, playing guitar and listening to music.
00:02:07You play guitar? mm-hmm.
00:02:09Well, I see you got a green day poster up there.

00:03:20That's a lot for a 12-year-old girl.

00:03:44I didn't want to say like-- like, "god, just " but like, I wanted-- I wanted them to put me back to sleep, pretty much.
00:03:52Because you were in so much pain?
00:03:54Just until the pain went away.

00:26:19Okay, mom not only cooks at work, she also cooks at home.
00:26:23 she's a pro.
00:26:25So I went shopping with michael at sears 'cause mom is a professional cook, so we need to find her some really professional gear.
00:26:32Pots. pans.
00:26:33We got the pots and pans, but now we gotta get a stove.

00:42:55He put such a smile on her face.
00:42:58Mm.
00:42:59When "extreme makeover: home edition" continues.
00:46:21I know the one thing you do like to do is to hang out in your room play music and write songs, right? mm-hmm.
00:46:28I've been working on your room all week, and I'm hoping it's a place you can do just that.
00:46:32I just want you to know I think you're a special little girl, all right? okay.
00:46:36So, um, check out your room.

00:46:51My room is totally the best room in the house.
00:46:54It's got guitars everywhere, and I love to play guitars.
00:46:58I think I'll make tons of music in that room.
00:47:01It's a nice place for me to just sit aroundall by myself-- nobody bug me--it'll be pretty awesome.
00:47:07Oh, my goodness, siehera.
00:47:10Isn't it awesome?
00:47:12Green day and guitars.

00:47:20Siehera!
00:47:21(gasps) YOU HAVE AN AUTOGRAPHED BASS FROM... (laughs) Gibson sent me something very, very special for siehera.
00:47:27It's a hand-signed guitar by billie joe armstrong from green day, which just happens to be her favorite band.
00:47:32 thank you so much.
00:47:35(Nila laughs) YOU LIKE IT?
00:47:36.. guitar!
00:47:38I know. how'd you do that?
00:47:40It's cool to know, though, that for a girl who can't sometimes leave her room because of health issues, she's got a place where she can chill out and have a lot of fun and do what she loves to do.
00:47:50And, um, if she writes any songs like the one I heard her write, I know they're gonna be good ones.
00:47:55That's so cool!
00:47:56It feels so good in the hands.
00:47:58That was such a moment for me, to see her in her room.
00:48:01He put such a smile on her face.
00:48:04Mm.
00:48:05I love my room! whoo!
00:48:06(laughs) OKAY. I'M SO GLAD YOU LOVE YOUR Room.
00:48:09 here's the thing though, there's one more thing that I want to show you.
00:48:13And I think you're gonna dig it 'cause it's pretty sweet.
00:48:16 yeah, come on.
00:48:19Follow me.

00:48:27 eduardo did such a great job.
00:48:31Oh, my.
00:48:31Now check it out--now I think you can tell by the shape-- siehera, this is your heart garden. oh!
00:48:36And the twists and turns, uh, symbolize-- well, what you've had to go through to get here.
00:48:42And then there's a special place just for you right in the center.
00:48:45In the middle of the heart, there was a stool for me to sit in, and there was a guitar beside it.
00:48:49So why don't you sit down and play a little guitar?
00:48:52This is, after all, your heart-shaped garden.
00:48:55I think she's really gonna love that garden, being able to sit and play her guitar and to feel that this is her spot.
00:49:01 you're so awesome.
00:49:04Thank you, ty. you made her smile.
00:49:06I made her smile? you made her smile.
00:49:08That's all that matters, isn't it?
00:49:10MM-HMM. (sobs) It was at that moment that she wanted to hug me and say thanks.
00:49:15And, um, and you realized when you looked around-- you saw a smile on dad's face that hadn't been there in a long time, and you saw the kids just elated with joy, and you saw siehera, so happy that she got a healthy house that she could live in-- it was really a-a beautiful moment.
00:49:32..
00:49:34These guys are amazing. you guys did awesome.
00:49:35Thank you. yes, I love it. hey, you're welcome.
00:49:37Siehera told me how much she loved her garden.
00:49:40Just like siehera's life, this garden's gonna grow, and hopefully together, they'll grow to live a long and happy life.
00:49:45Hi, sweetheart. you look beautiful.
00:49:48Thank you.
00:49:48We can't make siehera better.
00:49:50But at least she's gonna have a solid home that's clean and pure.
00:49:53It just makes all of us feel like we're leaving them I guess there's just one last thing to say.
00:49:59Welcome home, thibodeau family. welcome home.

00:50:33(all laugh) (Nila) THERE'S NO WAY TO TELL PEOPLE What you feel about what they've done.
00:50:38And it sounds so inadequate to say thank you.
00:50:42It sounds so small for what you feel.
00:50:47Thank you is all you can say.
00:50:49(Ty) OH, THIS IS GOING HIGH.
