A suburban family is no longer in dire housing straights after getting some help from a NBC show.
Oliphant and a team of professionals helped the Kosvarasti family with a full makeover of their Lisle home. Two of the Kosvarasti's boys have autism and a third survived an agressive form of cancer at the age of 2.
The boys -- now aged 9, 10 and 13 -- all shared the same bedroom, but the program shows how the garage was converted into an autism sensory room/bedroom, and the current bedroom was redesigned so the eldest boy could have a space of his own.
The family stayed at a local hotel while the work was being done, and the $60,000 cost of the renovation was donated.
The program airs Oct. 31st at 11 a.m. on NBC5. "George to the Rescue" and LXTV are owned by NBC Universal.
