Four years after a deaf couple form Michigan appeared on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, they are in danger of losing their home. The ABC show made renovations to their Detroit-area home that helped them better deal with their blind and autistic son. The broadcast set a ratings record for the show. After their appearance on the show, Larry was laid off and they remortgaged their home.
Now Judy and Larry Vardon face foreclosure. Their mortgage has nearly doubled while Larry fears losing his job in the auto industry because of trouble in the industry. At the same time, insurance doesn’t cover their son’s therapy, so medical bills are piling up.
