Ty and the team travel to Springfield, Massachusetts to surprise the Walker family--mom Sirdeaner, her daughters Dominique and Gloria and her son Charles. Aunt Barbara is also part of the family, as is grandmother Dorkas Ineta Walker. But one very special person is no longer there.
On April 6, 2009, 11-year-old Carl Walker took his own life after being relentlessly bullied at school. Carl's family has focused their energies on helping others. They have turned this tragic event into something positive by lobbying for new state and federal laws against bullying.
The 3rd floor of the Walker home is where Carl took his own life. As a result, the family cannot bear the sadness of being on that floor. They need a new home that would meet their current needs yet also honor Carl in a positive way. Know anyone who can help?
