Building Hope for Long Island
A Long Island cancer survivor is calling his neighbors’ efforts to reunite his family in a new house a dream come true.
For James Shaljian, his wife and four daughters, it was an emotional moment when their home of 20 years was torn down to make way for a new one.
Builders and volunteers announced in August that they would build a new home for the family, after the Shaljians were not chosen for ABC’s Extreme Makeover show.
A Long Island father with cancer who can’t live in his mold-riddled home in Mount Sinai will be getting a new house thanks to community builders and volunteers.
