WAYNE, N.J. –
GAF Materials Corporation will again be featured in an episode of the
long-running ABC network program, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” airing
Sunday, Jan. 16.
Ty Pennington and the Extreme Makeover crew will be building a
home more conducive to the medical needs of Zoë Simpson, a child who has
repeatedly beaten the medical odds in his two years of life. When Zoë was born,
parents Carmen and Jim Simpson were told that he had a deadly condition and was
given only 24 hours to live. The condition guaranteed blindness and doctors said
that should Zoë manage to survive longer, he would never be able to breathe on
his own, let alone walk or talk.
Amazing everyone and going against science, Zoë’s eyes and lungs both
healed and began to work on their own. He is now two years old and though he is
developmentally delayed, he continues to grow and live a happy life with his
brother Isaac and sister Katelyn. The family is so grateful for this miracle,
they have been paying it forward, constantly looking for ways to serve their
community and help others.
“It is so
rewarding to be able to make this contribution to a family who has been through
so much and who do so much for others,” said Ted Marcopolus, vice
president of marketing services at GAF.
“We are honored to have had the opportunity to participate in this
The home will feature GAF’s Timberline HD shingles, which
