Earlier this year, we shared the story of 9-year-old Anaiah Rucker who suffered life-threatening injuries pushing her 5-year-old sister, Camry, out of the path of an oncoming truck (READ HERE). The Rucker Family was featured on Sunday’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and was given a new home made more accessible for Anaiah, which includes a water park in the backyard that even Anaiah can visit in her waterproof wheelchair, as well as a basketball net.
NBA superstar Dwight Howard was on hand for the build and said he was so inspired by the family that his foundation would donate $50,000 for their needs. You can check out a tour of the Rucker Family’s new home below, and view the full episode online.
