On September 25, the television program, Operation Build's "I'm Coming Home" will begin renovating the home of Gold Star mom, Susan McClamrock.
Susan and her family lost their beloved son, James, when he was killed in Iraq in 2010.
Since that time, Susan has endured several life-threatening illnesses, including a liver transplant that has made it difficult for her to climb the staircase to her bedroom.
The renovation to her home will relocate her bedroom to the first floor and will create a handicap accessible bathroom. Over 15 local and national vendors are coming together to make this renovation possible.
However, there are several items still needed to complete the task in the bathroom. Additionally, there is a "suprise" that the designer would like to add for the McClamrock family that requires some support from her friends.
The big reveal will take place on Friday, September 29th and the television program will air nationally later this year on the A&E Network.
I am asking my friends in the Tribute To The Troops community, along with Susan's many friends, to pull together to make this much needed renovation possible.
In addition to creating the new first floor bedroom and bath, the program will be shining a light on the invisible wounds that our Gold Star families endure daily. The show will feature Tribute To The Troops and our mission prominently and will tell the story of the impact that James's death has had on the family. It will also highlight the spirit of giving that Susan embodies as a board member of the North Carolina Tribute To The Troops chapter and the support that she faithfully offers to other Gold Star families.
Please help us with this goal. Together we can make this happen if we all give a little. Every donation counts. Do what you can to show your support.
The renovation takes place in less than two weeks so please act quickly!
