Extreme Makeover: Move that bus!Thousands gathered as ABC's hit reality show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition revealed a new home to the Sharrock family Saturday.
An episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” that was filmed in Rossville, Ga. in February is planned to air May 15 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
The episode, which features the Sharrock family, will be the season finale, capping off the show’s 8th year in production.
The show and its stars were in the area mid-February to build a new home for Michael, Cindy and Patrick Sharrock alongside local builder Vision Homes and thousands of volunteers.
Patrick, 9, has a rare genetic condition, commonly known as brittle bone disease, where even the slightest bump could cause his bones to snap. In his short life, Patrick has already had 59 broken bones.
The Sharrock’s new home is equipped with advantages specifically designed for Patrick, giving him a safe environment. It’s something the Sharrock’s previous 50-year-old home couldn’t provide.
Plans for a community-wide “Extreme Viewing Party” to take place on May 15 are underway by the Vision Homes and “Big Hearts” teams.
