An off-TV 'extreme'
By Jessica Spies, staff writer , Greece Post
In July 2006, Dean and Tammie Myslivecek endured a tragedy no parent should — their 16-year-old son, Daniel, died from metastatic melanoma, a form of skin cancer. Six months later, their daughter Abigal, now 11, was diagnosed with aplastic anemia, a condition in which the body stops producing enough new blood cells.“My heart broke when I found out about Abigal,” said Sandi Moneta, a friend of the family.
Moneta found a general contractor, Chili resident Bill Sauers (owner of Sunday Siders), who was willing to donate his time and work to help build a new home for the Mysliveceks and their three surviving children. Joining Sauers in the project are architect Al Arilotta, home builder Jamie Valerio of Perna Homes, Jeff Henchen of Landmark Builders, Frank Martin of Martin Construction, and Nick DeRisio of DeRisio Construction — to name a few.
