12:00pm � EHM 2005A (#205A) � �Vardon Family Part 1� - When Stefan Vardon, 14, wrote a heartwarming school essay about his deaf parents and his blind and autistic 12-year-old brother, he had no idea that it would lead to the team from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition showing up at his family's Oak Park, Michigan home. In two back-to-back episodes, the design team transformed the Vardons' ordinary 980-square-foot house into a dream home outfitted with the latest communications and safety devices for people with hearing loss.

1:00pm � EHM 2006B (#205B) � �Vardon Family Part 2� � Please see above.

2:00pm � EHM 1011 (#112) � �Cadigan-Scott Family� � In June 2003 Diane died as a result of heart problems. Mark died 16 days later of a heart attack. Their eight kids were left to grieve a double, unbelievable loss. The two oldest siblings moved back home and took legal guardianship of their brothers and sisters, which enabled the family to stay together. To assist the Cadigan-Scott family in this new phase of their lives, community support was marshaled from local police officers, firefighters, teachers, church members, business owners and others who wanted to help the kids fix up their run-down, 1400-square-foot house.

3:00pm � EHM 2007 (#219) � �Leslie Family� � Just days before Christmas in 2003, Robin received the life-altering news that her oldest son, Merlin, and husband Doug had been killed instantly in a car crash. Robin takes one day at a time and knows that life must go on for her and her three young boys -- Spencer, six, and three-year-old twins Brent and Brandon. Though she's committed to finding a way to finish an unfinished and rundown house, it was Doug who was the handy one, and on a school guidance counselor's salary and sadly Robin can't afford to hire anyone to do the work for her.

4:00pm � EHM 2008 (#203) � �Pope Family� �Shelby Pope was just six years old when she learned seven years ago that she had polymorphic light eruption, also known as sun poisoning. Now, Shelby is in junior high school and, except for attending a night camp for people with her condition; she usually stays in her tiny bedroom with the windows covered. Her parents have tried to make renovations, but they don�t have the financial resources to do such things as tinting all of the windows of the house or of the family car.

5:00pm � EHM 2009 (#209) � �Elcano Family� � Glen and Jennifer Elcano were living their dream. They used to spend practically 24 hours a day together running and operating their small family farm in Bakersfield, California. Then, one fateful day, Glen was driving home from making a delivery to another local farm when a car pulled out in front of him. He was killed instantly in the accident. Now Jennifer and her two young children are barely managing the farm on their own. She and the kids have hardly had time to mourn Glen's death, much less to keep the farm running or make repairs to their small 100-year-old dilapidated farmhouse.

6:00pm � EHM 2010 (#204) �Grinnan Family� � Hannah Grinnan was just 11 days old when she underwent organ transplant surgery. Shortly thereafter, Hannah began to reject her heart. The only way to save her was to be near a facility that could handle her emergency conditions. Loma Linda University Medical Center had the best heart center for children, so the family made the difficult decision to move to Redlands, California. At the time, their other children Mary, 22, Bill Jr., 20, Catie, 17, Gabe, 11, Sara, eight, and seven-year-old Clare had to take on adult responsibilities and care for each other while their parents held vigil in the hospital. With several limitations, today Hannah is a relatively healthy six-year-old who likes to do all the things that a youngster her age should enjoy.

7:00 pm � EHM 2011 (#207) �Mackey Family� - For the past 25 years, Consuela Mackey has tirelessly helped those living with disabilities by providing them with job training, individualized training in personal care and education on workplace etiquette.Since she has devoted most of her life to helping others, it was long overdue for something extremely nice to be done for her.
