The challenge is on, as the EM: HE team, builders and volunteers work twice as hard to get not one but two homes move-in ready in just seven days.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition travels to Davidson County, NC – with celebrity volunteers Jewel & Ty Murray — to meet Tricia Creasey, a beloved teacher who is battling stage-four cancer while her husband struggles to keep their home livable for their family. The Creaseys bought their home as a fixer-upper, but the necessary repairs and renovations have taken a back seat to Tricia’s medical care. Numerous structural problems such as holes in the floor, walls and roof — where animals can get in — cracks in the foundation, lack of insulation, and extensive water damage from a leaking roof create additional, everyday obstacles and hazards for Tricia and the entire family. Now it’s up to Ty and the gang to build William, 40, Tricia, 37, Brittany, 12, Makenzie, 5, and Makayla, 5, a new home that will not only be a safe place for Tricia to battle her cancer, but provide a place for family, friends and the community to gather and offer support.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition traveled to Buffalo, New York – with music star and celebrity volunteer, Ashanti — to meet Delores Powell, a Jamaican immigrant and community activist whose home is barely livable. Moving here 22 years ago, Delores worked hard to support herself and her growing family, but the accomplishment was overshadowed by the abusive nature of her relationship with her ex-husband. In 2002, after reaching her limit, Delores picked up her children and moved to Buffalo, NY, in search of affordable housing. They rented an apartment for a year before finding a six bedroom “fixer upper.” Delores struck a deal with the seller personally, but unfortunately the seller failed to disclose that the house was on the city’s demolition list. Delores, 49, and her children Joel, 18, Gabrielle, 16, Deborah, 15, and Anschel, 10, began building scaffolding, hanging drywall, installing windows, and countless other repairs. But even after five and a half years of work, the family’s home is unlivable. Now it’s up to Ty and the design team to build Delores and her family the strong, safe home that will support this family and their dreams.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, with celebrity volunteer six time Grammy award winner volunteer Mary J. Blige, traveled to Erie, PA to meet the indomitable Clara Ward, who has cast the adversity of her health and surroundings aside to run a nonprofit youth development and family center from her home. Having experienced a childhood of hardship, Clara vowed to make a difference for the next generation, and neither modest means nor the challenges of Myostenio Gradi, a degenerative muscular disease, have stopped her. For decades Clara has put her personal needs second to feeding, clothing and nurturing children in her home, organizing charitable drives, arranging field trips, tutoring, giving cooking lessons and much more. But the rampant disrepair of her crumbling two-story home increasingly threatens the life-long mission that means so much to her and the people in her neighborhood. Furthermore, the house lacks the wheelchair accessibility she needs, requiring her to stay with her daughter and head back and forth each day.
