A WORTHY WINNER
A few months ago, Stoneset ran their very first StoneSet Mega Makeover competition. Stories were solicited from the community of families who would benefit from a StoneSet makeover. After pouring through many inspiring entries, the winner was chosen. Karen's story describes how StoneSet was able to not only give Karen a new driveway, but grant her the ability to stay in her beloved home for many years to come.
Mark and Cassandra came across Stoneset’s competition and immediately knew Mark's mother, Karen, would be a worthy recipient. Unbeknownst to her, they wrote in and shared her story.
In January of 2015, Karen's husband was diagnosed with mesothelioma (asbestos cancer). He quickly became very ill and was unable to take care of their home like he had always faithfully done. Sadly, in March of 2016, Karen's husband passed away of a heart attack while in the hospital. Leaving Karen alone in the home they had shared for thirty years, she was overwhelmed and unsure how she would be able to stay in her home.
Karen’s worries were increased when it come to the condition of the driveway. With a steep incline and dangerous cracks, she had fallen twice, receiving dangerous injuries. After these falls, Karen was unable to walk down her driveway without a fear of falling. She was seriously considering moving to a nursing home, which would force her to leave behind the home she loved.
After hearing Karen's story, StoneSet were convinced they could make a difference. StoneSet awarded Karen their Mega Makeover winner award and took on the project of repairing Karen's driveway. Working together, the team were able to complete it just in time for Christmas. Karen was completely overwhelmed upon seeing the finished product.
"It's amazing, it looks so beautiful,” she gushed. “I thought I was going to a nursing home, but with all this being done, I'm able to stay here with all the memories and possessions.”
StoneSet are honored to meet Karen and be a part her story. It was a privilege for the team to carry on her husband's memory by repairing her driveway, allowing her to stay in her home for many years to come.
