NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - A Lexington family has been chosen to receive a new home by the show, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."
Brian and Audra Skaggs were greeted at their front door Monday morning by team leader Ty Pennington and other members of the show's design team. Ideal Homes of Norman will lead hundreds of
volunteers during the one-week project.
The Skaggs' 3-year-old son, Jhett, was born with a medical condition that required a heart transplant when he was 10 months old. His recovery includes several daily medications and monthly trips to a specialist in Houston for check-ups.
The family's home has problems with mold, rotting and termites that show organizers say pose a risk to Jhett's weakened immune system.
