When 7-year-old Tara Kubena returned to East Bernard, Texas, she and her family walked into a new home transformed by "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" that included donated cleaning products and services pooled by The Housekeeping Channel.

Since the age of two, identical twins Tara and Sara Kubena have undergone several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation for the same form of childhood leukemia. After both sisters' leukemia was in remission, they could finally go to school and play with other children, after years of isolation to protect their vulnerable immune systems. Tara's leukemia, however, recently relapsed, and she received a bone marrow transplant, her best chance for survival.

To support long-term housekeeping for the family, The Housekeeping Channel tapped its partner and advertising base to donate products and services from companies including:

  • Filterstream
  • IQAir
  • Mary Moppins
  • Procter & Gamble
  • ProTeam

"Supplying the Kubenas with cleaning and indoor environment products was essential to bringing Tara Kubena home, a seven-year-old who has virtually no immune system," Diane Korman, the show's coordinating producer, said. "We are grateful beyond words for the support of The Housekeeping Channel for making this important donation happen."
