Glenn Close has requested that we make you aware of this important television program which will be aired on Friday November 4, 2011:
I want to share with you the exciting news that Bring Change 2 Mind will be featured on tomorrow’s episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
I had the honor and great pleasure of working with Ty Pennington and his team of incredible designers to build a new home for my friends Staff Sergeant Allen Hill (Ret.), his wife, Gina, his sons, Makale and Dreyson, and his service dog, Frankie.
Before you tune in to tomorrow’s show, Friday, November 4th, at 8/7c on ABC, please spread the word about our appearance on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to your family and friends.

Staff Sergeant Hill proudly served our country in Operation Iraqi Freedom. While on duty he was nearly killed by a roadside bomb, and now he lives with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Watch tomorrow’s episode so you can hear Allen’s inspiring story – and to learn about the terrible challenges of living with PTSD and of the important work Bring Change 2 Mind is doing to end the stigma surrounding mental illness.
I am honored to know Allen, a true American hero, and to have had the chance to be one of the thousands of volunteers who helped bring him home to his wife and children. Together we had the opportunity to work with him to raise awareness about the toxic stigma that so often impedes the healing of our invisibly wounded warriors and those living with mental illness.
I hope you will join me in watching tomorrow night.
