"EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION" HELPS A WOUNDED POLICE OFFICER WHOSE PUBLIC SERVICE HAS BEEN ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY

Country Star Trace Adkins Volunteers for "Get on the Bus" Campaign

On July 10, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" travels to Lancaster, Texas, to meet Carlton Marshall, who lost most of his mobility and all of his hearing after being shot while leading a Dallas Police Department SWAT team. Carlton and his wife, Susan, a homicide detective, will learn that their home will be rebuilt in seven days � solving rampant structural and accessibility issues and enabling the Marshalls to continue their long-time volunteer work with horseback riding therapy for children and adults with mental and physical challenges. The episode will air in the series' upcoming season.

Country Music sensation Trace Adkins will be the celebrity volunteer for this build.

About two years ago, Carlton was shot in the neck while serving a narcotics search warrant. Severe spinal cord damage was immediate, followed by hearing loss and a stroke. Today rehabilitation has restored some of Carlton's mobility, but he is still primarily confined to a wheelchair. Health issues also affect the Marshalls' young daughter, Jessica, who began having seizures about a month after Carlton was so severely wounded. The Marshall family, which also includes a young son, Joseph, must cope with these health problems in a house where snakes have infested the walls, attic, wiring and plumbing. Furthermore, the foundation of the house is sinking, and the septic system backs up on their lawn. Despite their myriad difficulties, Carlton and Susan's big hearts remain open to others as supporters of the nonprofit program TROT, Therapeutic Riding of Texas. The Marshalls hope to modify their horse barn and stables to host TROT sessions, which would also be helpful to Carlton.

While the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" team, local builder Cheldan Homes, workers and volunteers rebuild the Marshall home, the family will go on vacation to Disneyland. The design team for this episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers Paul DiMeo, Tracy Hutson and Ed Sanders. The series is produced by Endemol USA, a division of Endemol Holding. It is executive-produced by Anthony Dominici. David Goldberg is Chairman, Endemol North America. The location address is: The Marshall Family, 1648 Hash Rd. Lancaster, TX 75146.
