Scott and Kelly bought their Cedarburg home in 2007. Scott works for an area power company and Kelly is a teacher at a nearby school. They are parents to a wonderful son. Kelly was diagnosed with cancer shortly after they purchased their home. A few long years of battling with this cancer has taken its toll on Kelly's physical well-being; to the point at which a single stair has become a mountain for Kelly.
The family's home is a quaint two-story that was originally built in the late 1800's. The first floor of the house is a wonderful public space with the kitchen on one half and a spacious living room on the other. However, there is no bathroom on the first floor. For Kelly, this became a serious problem.
Scott and Kelly had traveled down every avenue they could think of to somehow get a bathroom on the first floor. Every approach was a dead end. The couple did not give up hope, though, and sought counsel from Pastor Suhr of Christ Church in Mequon, who reached out to members in his congregation for insight. One was willing to help out with what materials he had available and some of his time, and another said he would see what he could do and asked to meet with Kelly and Scott in person to get a better idea of what they were looking for.

This project will give Kelly her pre-cancer life back and is a testament of how faith, hope, and great people can come together to help others in their communities.
