Will needs a motorized scooter to help him move around since he can't sta... (more)nd or walk on his own. His older brother and sister Abby and Matthew even don't except birthday gifts. Instead they want whatever money that would be spent on presents, donated towards SMA. This family realized they needed to make improvements to the home since it's very hard for Will to get around. In the renovation process, some of the outside wall fell on Heidi's father. He's okay thankfully, but after that happend, they realized EM:HE could be there only hope.Now Ty and his team built a farm style home completely accessible for WIll and his scooter. Now he has freedom to move around the home by himself, with includes his new lift to the next floor. Also for the family who is completely obsessed with Boston Red Sox baseball, the team built them a baseball diamond in the backyard and a remote operated scoreboard.
