Past Projects

Current Project: Ramirez Family

The recipients of our 2014 home renovation project are Ramon Ramirez and his wife Noemi.

In 2010 Ramon was diagnosed with a disease so rare that it has not been given a formal name by the medical community. With symptoms similar to Parkinson’s Disease, Ramon’s condition has degenerated to the point where he has great difficulty moving and is almost speechless.

Noemi, Ramon’s wife, has worked incredibly hard to preserve what she can of Ramon’s way of life. Yet this task has become more difficult each day. Living in a split level home, the Ramirez’s continually face challenging mobility issues for Ramon. Hearts and Hammers plans to transform their lives by installing ramps outside and lifts inside as well as modifying the bathroom. Noemi will no longer have to carry Ramon by herself to simply move him from room to room or to gain access to outside.

Current Project: Peter Howard

The recipients of our inaugural home renovation project are Peter Howard and his wife Debbie Howard.

Peter and Debbie have been Calgary residents for over 18 years, and have been married for over 40 years. Peter was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis shortly after moving to Calgary. Debbie herself has been in and out of hospitals for much of the past 9 years due to a devastating car accident. Debbie has currently been making a remarkable recovery, and is nearly ready to come home.

However, due to Peter's own disabilities and accessibility issues in their home, Debbie may be forced to move into an assisted living facility, further separating this committed couple. Both Peter and Debbie are committed to living together as independently as possible for as long as possible. The proposed renovation by Hearts and Hammers will make their home more wheelchair-friendly and allow them to live there more easily.
