We’re back in Panama City Beach, Florida with the Patron family. This Gold Star widow’s home is in desperate need of a makeover, after it was destroyed by Hurricane Michael.

Before anything else, learn about this season’s family: The Patrons.

On August 6, 2011, Cody Patron’s world came crashing down. She received word that after serving more than a decade in the Marine Corps, her husband, Sergeant Daniel J. Patron, was killed in Sangin Valley, Afghanistan. Tragedy struck again in October 2018 when the Patron home was destroyed by the catastrophic Hurricane Michael, which made landfall as an unprecedented Category 5 and destroyed much of the Florida Panhandle region.

After sustaining devastating water and wind damage, Cody’s home in Panama City Beach is barely livable. The first step in helping Cody and her daughter, Layla, start anew is giving the family home the renovation it so desperately needs.

One of our newest partners, Cummins, is ready to install the home’s new generator. The Home Depot is on-site as well, supplying enough PPG Paint for every room, along with Tarkett, responsible for the home’s brand-new floors.

Meanwhile, Cody Patron’s daughter, Layla, is about to go on her first plane ride. She’s off to Virginia for a shopping spree, courtesy of our partner, Simon.

For a comforting taste of home, a good snack makes a big difference. That’s where Hero Jerky comes in.

Plus, WWE Superstar Lacey Evans is teaming up with the cast of Military Makeover with Montel to give back to our veterans and their families. Learn more!
