The Family Home Overhaul Teams Helps Remove Barriers for Family Devastated by an Accident

Brian and Claire met on cruise ship, married, and had two kids. But then one Christmas season Brian fell off a ladder while doing the decorative outdoor lights, losing the use of his legs from the waist down. It was a devastating accident, but one that this couple turned into something positive. Together they now raise as much money and awareness for spinal cord injuries as possible. From marathons and golf tournaments, to many community events in between, their work is more than inspiring. Unfortunately, they still had plenty of challenges-especially at home. While they had moved to a more accessible house following the accident, the layout didn’t allow Brian to cook or worse, go upstairs to help bathe and tuck in his kids, who are 2 and 7. Enter Cheryl Hickey and the Family Home Overhaul team. Hickey, along with designer Mia Parres and contractors Dave Kenney and Joey Fletcher, delivered this family the gorgeous and accessible renovation that they not only deserved, but so desperately needed.
