On the December 2nd episode of ABC's EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION entitled, "Walker Family," the makeover crew traveled to Springfield, Massachusetts to surprise the Walker family with the door knock that can change lives - a surprise visit from The Kardashian Sisters. The Walker family has been dealing with a huge loss. In 2009, eleven-year-old Carl Joseph-Walker Hoover committed suicide in his home, because he was being bullied at school with anti-gay taunts.

As the designers and crew rebuild the family's home, the Walkers are treated to a Hollywood vacation with a rally held in their honor by the Kardashian sisters along with singer and anti-bullying activist, Demi Lovato.  The moving two-part episode of EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION airs this FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2 (8:00-9:00 & 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

As the iconic "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" returned for the ninth season, deserving families in need of a newly rebuilt and decorated home are once again treated to the door knock that changes lives. Throughout the series, children have been an integral part of so many of the episodes, and this season children are the focus. Whether it's bringing to light the challenges of dwarfism faced by youngsters, the bond between a father and his paralyzed son, or the heroic eight-year-old who saved her younger sister from an oncoming truck -- but incurred life-threatening injuries of her own -- this season celebrates the power of children to transform their own lives and those of their communities.

And "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will continue to unite the families selected with their favorite entertainers, athletes, politicians and role models, this season including First Lady Michelle Obama, Glenn Close, Rihanna and Meredith Vieira, among others.

Ty Pennington heads up the team of designers in a race against the clock to turn people's wildest dreams into reality. Each episode is self-contained and features a project that would ordinarily take at least four months to achieve, involving a team of designers, contractors and several hundred volunteer workers who all have just seven days to totally rebuild and decorate an entire house -- every single room, plus the exterior and landscaping. The result should be a decorator's delight, if it can be done in time.

EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION airs Fridays on the ABC network
