Season 7 American Idol, David Cook is set to appear on an upcoming episode of the ABC TV show, Extreme Makeover, Home Edition. The air date is yet to be determined.
David will be joining Ty Pennington and the Extreme Makeover team to re-build a house for a Miami, Indiana family suffering from “sick” house. According to this item, the team will be in Indiana today to meet the family:
Today, Ty Pennington and his team travel to Miami County, Ind., to meet the Cowan-Brown family. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will rebuild the home of Andy and Heather Cowan, factory workers who struggle to support their four children Ryan, 16, Trevor, 13, Mason, 8, and daughter Kori, 12, who is battling a congenital blood disease.
David and the team, which includes a local builder and a slew of community volunteers will rebuild the Cowan-Brown home while the family vacations in Disney World.
Twelve-year old Kori, the family member who is battling a blood disease, has raised over $35, 000 dollars for the American Cancer society, inspired by another little girl she met during a hospital stay. There’s your David Cook connection right there. David has raised thousands of dollars for cancer research, in honor of his brother Adam, who died of Brain cancer earlier this year.
Kori has suffered the growth of polyps in her nasal cavity and behind her eyes, a painful condition that has resulted in 17 operations. Doctors believe Kori’s disease has worsened due to environmental issues in the home that include an extreme mold infestation. One of the boys is now living with his biological father to avoid becoming ill.
David Cook is not the first Idol to appear on the show this season. Kellie Pickler filmed a segment, which is set to air on Sunday November 7 on ABC. There’s no air date yet for the David Cook appearance.
