UPDATE: Community Rallies To Help 9/11 Volunteers Build Dream Home

When we first met Nick and Margaret Ursta they were stuck in a construction hell while Nick battles cancer. Things are definitely looking much brighter now, but there's still a long way to go.


Progress has been slow going for Nick and Margaret Ursta as they try to piece together their dream home and while Nick fights cancer. That is all about to change in a very big way, beginning with the new roof that's going on next week. In our previous story we told their story and how an anonymous donor man stepped up to cover the full cost.

Now two retired contractors are putting their skills to work inside the house. Marty Griffin introduces you to Kevin Anglum and Tony Napolitano:

The next amazing piece coming together will be centered in the basement. That's where the folks at TUDI Mechanical Systems will be putting in a brand new furnace and they're donating the entire system as part of their Heat For The Needy program.

More updates are coming on the Ursta family and progress on their home.
