"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” Fulfills The Dying Wish Of A Father Who Wanted To Provide A Happy And Safe Home For His Wife And Their Special-Needs Children Adopted From China, In A Special Two Hour Episode
Legendary Singer Stevie Wonder Performs a Private Concert for the Family at their New Home
Loving father and husband George Kadzis, from Tallahassee, Florida, had been battling brain cancer. His one dying wish was to provide his wife and children with a safe home. In keeping with “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s” call to honor everyday heroes across America, the show informed the Kadzis family that their hurricane-damaged home would be rebuilt and modified in seven days to meet their special needs. Sadly, three days after the family received their new home, George succumbed to his cancer. The emotional two-hour episode airs SUNDAY, APRIL 12 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Extraordinary compassion led George Kadzis, a prison dentist, and his wife, Barbara, a lifelong teacher who herself was adopted, to open their hearts and home to special-needs children adopted from orphanages in China. The family faced major challenges in their cramped, hurricane-damaged home, which was especially difficult for daughter Melody to navigate, as she is blind. The other adopted brothers and sisters also face significant physical challenges: Julia is deaf, Martin’s right arm and hand are deformed, and Phoenix and Celeste are now having their cleft palates repaired. Aileen lost her birth father to cancer, and her birth mother fled after his death. Because Barbara and George Kadzis weren’t fluent in Chinese, and several of their adopted children could barely communicate in any fashion, the family turned to the universal language of music as an instrument to heal, communicate and transform. Chris, Barbara and George’s biological son, Martin, play the guitar and piano, Aileen plays the flute and Melody plays the zither, while sister Julia dances like she’s listening to every note -- except that she can’t hear.
Now Ty and the designers, local builder Myddelton Parker Builders, LLC and hundreds of volunteers and workers, will step in and rebuild the Kadzis home. In addition, legendary singer/songwriter Stevie Wonder stops by on reveal day and performs a private concert for the family.
The design team for this episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers Michael Moloney, Paige Hemmis and John Littlefield. The series is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. It’s executive-produced by Anthony Dominici. David Goldberg is Chairman, Endemol North America. “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” is broadcast with Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.
