Guiding Eyes Graduate Featured on ABC-TV's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition this coming Sunday, December 5 at 8 pm EST
Graduate Andre Anderson and his Guiding Eyes dog Valentine are featured on this Sunday's segment of the popular television program. Andre and his wife run a counseling program out of their home to help other people with vision impairments live independent lives. Because their house was in a state of utter decay - unsafe for their work, for themselves, and their two children - they applied to Extreme Makeover.
Sunday's program tells the story of Andre's journey and reveals the magnificent new home that the program's team built for his family. The home is fitted with new technology specially designed to make Andre's life easier and more productive.
"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" airs on ABC.
