Hamburg, PA – August 12, 2010 | The Extreme Home Makeover show of Berks County, PA is almost complete. The build started approximately on 7/28/2010 and should be completed on 8/04/2010.
Reason for the rebuild was the husband had just graduated with his PHD and was diagnosed with a brain tumor shortly after. His wife was pregnant at this time as well. After extensive surgeries, medical bills were into the hundreds of thousands for them. On the day of his child’s birth, the husband went out to feed the animals, collapsed, and died from a heart attack. The new family has struggled to survive ever since.
Matt Breyer (President of NADRA, PA Chapter) and John Breyer, of Breyer Construction, Reading, PA built the deck with the assistance of the Extreme Makeover Crew. The deck was put together in less than 18 hours and manpower was abundant. The deck was built out of Evergrain Decking and post sleeves which were donated by WOLF Distribution of Allentown, PA to help this great cause.
Matt stayed on site and also supervised the evening shift of volunteers for the project. Look for this show on the 2010-2011 season.
