Help! Catastrophe (especially to kitchen) making evacuation necessary! Sign In/Join 
I am the primary caregiver for my husband a 100% service connected disabled betreran with MS who is now quadriplegic. We just experienced the worst homeowner catastrophe ever. An ice dam damaged the ceilings and walls of every room in our house and since yesterday I have had a crew doing remediation work and removing drywall, insulation and ceilings. I can see to the rafters but now with the freezing weather the water has stopped pouring into the kitchen. I'm currently out of work due to a work injury and we are living disability check to dicability check. We were in the prss of saving funds for remodel to the kitchen to make the home more accessible but its going insurance deductable and other expenses. My husband had to be evacuated due to uthe unsafe conditions here and I'm managing to stay take of our pets. I t would be such a blessing to have HGTV take an interest in our situation and surprise Mike with the accessible kitchen and remodeled bedroom.
