"EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION" HONORS THE HALL FAMILY'S COURAGE AND HEART WHEN THEY DELIVER A NEW HOME IN WICHITA, KS

The "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" team descends on Wichita, Kansas to deliver a new home to the Hall family. The family of six was hit hard by tragedy on June 26, 2010 when a car accident left dad, Carl, paralyzed from the shoulders down. Unfortunately Carl's condition made it impossible for him to continue in their bi-level home, which contained door frames that were not wheelchair accessible and dangerous stairs that made it impossible to move in and around the house. As a result, the family was forced to leave the home and move to a rented condo. This week the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" designers will give Carl back some independence and a new home to rehab in so that his family can move past this tragedy and into a brighter, healthier future.

The Hall family represent a slice of Americana. Carl married his high school sweetheart, Stacey, and together they created the ultimate team. Megan (16), Maddie (14), Logan (11), and McLaine (9) all followed in dad's footsteps by participating in team sports and enjoying mom's perfect cheer from the sidelines. Despite the recent car accident, Carl has not lost his fighting spirit. Instead of asking why me?, he meets each challenge head on and asks what's next? The community has helped the Halls' with numerous fundraisers; however Carl's condition is costly and continues to put unimaginable financial pressure on the family. As he faces the toughest challenge of his life with sheer force of will and determination, "Extreme Makeover" will give this All-American athlete, who embodies the rarest kind of inspiration and gratitude, the best playing field possible for his greatest performance yet.

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is on deck and ready to hit this one out of the park for the Hall family's "It Ain't Over 'til It's Over" episode. Along with community volunteers and Bob Cook Homes, team leader Ty Pennington, designers Paul DiMeo, Paige Hemmis and Jillian Harris will rebuild their home so that this team can get back on track and focus on the road to recovery.

The location address is: 11026 West Hollywood Court, Wichita, KS.

The series is produced by Endemol USA, of Endemol Holding, and executive-produced by Brady Connell & George Verschoor. David Goldberg is Chairman, Endemol North America.
