“The Rucker Family”

Fifth grader Anaiah Rucker risked her life to save her younger sister Camry, by pushing her sister out of an oncoming truck’s path, and getting struck instead. Anaiah sustained life-threatening injuries, including a leg amputation that has left her wheel-chair bound. Undaunted she dreams of playing sports again. The EM:HE design team has just seven days to build the Rucker family a new home that is ADA-accessible and obstacle free. In the meantime, the Ruckers visit Walt Disney World and Anaiah receives a surprise visit from Orlando Magic player Dwight Howard and Paralympic Sitting Volleyball team member Katie Holloway.
