Purple Heart Marine Gilyeat and His Family on Extreme Makeover
Friday, January 18, 2008 -- "Gilyeat Family" --
The Gilyeat family from Kansas City, KS has received the surprising news that Ty and the gang will build them a new, renovated home in just seven days in a special two-hour episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 10 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Daniel Gilyeat is a decorated U.S. marine and a loving father to his children, having served not one but two tours in Iraq. During the second tour he volunteered for, he was out on a mission when a bomb hit his truck. He suffered major injuries and lost his left leg above the knee. In addition, his marriage ended and he suddenly became a single father. As with many soldiers, deployment had put a huge stress on his marriage. But despite these setbacks and personal battles, 25 days after losing his leg, Daniel was up and walking with a prosthetic leg, and inspiring other wounded soldiers by visiting them in the hospital and speaking with their families. He tries to create a normal environment for his children and to take proper care of them, but household chores are difficult because the house is not handicapped accessible; it's nearly impossible for him to get around, as all the floors are uneven and the doors are very narrow -- he often has to rely on a wheelchair. What's more, the laundry is in the basement. Daniel's trying to rebuild his life, and one of the things he desperately needs is a safe home where he can raise his kids.

Now it's up to Ty and the gang to give this American hero a place to do just that. While Ty and the designers, local builder Kevin Green Homes and hundreds of volunteers and workers are rebuilding their home, the Gilyeat family will go on vacation to the Universal Hilton in Los Angeles. And they're also in for a special treat when they're whisked off to San Diego for a concert and surprise meeting with "Hannah Montana's" Miley Cyrus.

The design team for this episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers Paige Hemmis, Eduardo Xol, John Littlefield and Rib Hillis. The series is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. It's executive-produced by Denise Cramsey. David Goldberg is the president of Endemol USA. "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" is broadcast with Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.

This episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will be available on ABC.com the day after airing on the network for users to watch online.
