David Cook rolled up his sleeves to help Ty Pennington and the team build a house for the Cowan family in this week’s episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
The connection here was 12 year old Kori, who, despite having a debilitating blood disorder, still finds time to raise money for the fight against cancer. Many of you know that David’s 37 year old brother, Adam, died of brain tumor in May ’09.
David choked up a couple of times as he talks about how close the cause is to his heart.
Well, it’s Extreme Makeover! Tears all around as the family gets their brand new house, free of mold, bacteria and dust. The mold in the old house was severely affecting Kori’s already compromised immune system.
After the show aired Sunday night, David tweeted, “Thanks to everyone for watching EM:HE tonight. I was honored to be a part and the Cowan-Browns deserve all that and more. irokfoundation.com”
