Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is over until the show airs on ABC in January. We found out that the selected family was Cowan-Brown family of Bunker Hill. Their daughter Kori, 12, was diagnosed with a congenital blood disease when she was six. Since spending time rooming with a young cancer patient in the hospital, Kori has raised over $35,000 for the American Cancer Society. Because of mold in her home, Kori has had to have several surgeries for growths in her sinuses, and other family members have suffered as well. Hallmark Homes and numerous volunteers have banded together to build this family a new home.
My role in all of this was to make sure all of the sponsors received recognition for their hard work and generous donations. I worked with D Ashley Design + Events to create the “Hall of Heroes.” Over fifty businesses sent me photographs, logos, and statements about why they wanted to help out with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I had less than a week to combine these elements into a poster for each business. Although each poster was not very difficult, the sheer quantity and time frame kept me working like crazy.
Thanks to Janel Bantz for the excellent photograph.
