On Sunday October 17 on ABC, Extreme Makeover Home Edition will rebuild the home of the Urban family of Hamburg, Pennsylvania with the help of the newest member of the design team, Leigh Anne Tuohy, as well as supermodel Christie Brinkley. Read on for a sneak peek at the episode…
Trisha Urban is a single mother living in Hamburg, Pennsylvania, who lost her husband to a heart attack just as their child was about to be born. In Sunday’s episode, Trisha, who now works to support the American Heart Association, is visited by Ty Pennington and the Extreme Makeover Home Edition team, who with the help of supermodel Christie Brinkley and design team member Leigh Anne Tuohy, will rebuild the 300 year-old log cabin and farm that Trisha and her husband had been planning to transform into their dream home.
Trisha met her husband Andy while in college. They married and were expecting their first child, while also working to transform their new property into their perfect home, but it wasn’t to be.Â Andy, who was born with a congenital heart defect, passed away of a heart attack while Trisha was in labor.
Since then, Trisha has been raising their daughter, and has also raised thousands of dollars for the American Heart Association so that Andy’s death is not in vain. She also works as a hospice nurse so others can benefit from the insight of her experience.
Extreme Makeover Home Edition sent Trisha and her daughter Cora to Walt Disney World while the rebuild was being completed.Â The design team for the episode consists of Ty Pennington, Leigh Anne Tuohy, Paul DiMeo, and Tracy Hutson. Berks County Home Builders Association ran the project.
