DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., March 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Military Makeover with Montel airing on Lifetime Television, and long-term partner and 2021 Title Sponsor, MyComputerCareer, are about to change the life of Staff Sergeant (SSG) Daniel Burgess, Ret. and his family: wife, Genette and daughters, Gracie and Kaylee. On Friday, March 12th at 7:30 AM ET/PT, viewers will first witness the Burgess family’s home renovation and how it revolutionizes their day-to-day life with more accessibility, space and personalization for each family member.
Military Makeover follows the story of the Burgess family who have experienced a long and difficult journey with Daniel’s recovery as he lost his right leg, sustained significant brain trauma and several other injuries while deployed in Afghanistan. A fan of both WWE wrestling and Lacey Evans, his daughter, Gracie, reached out to the Military Makeover host and professional WWE wrestler to be a part of the show and change their life forever. With the help of the Military Makeover team and MyComputerCareer, the show will transform their home in Cape Coral, FL, known as the Purple Heart City due to the number of wounded veterans living there.
“The renovation of our home means so much more to us than new furniture and a new look. It’s about having a place to come together as a family. In our case, new and improved accessibility features were essential for me to get around my home and these renovations have made that possible,” said Daniel Burgess. “We can’t be more grateful to the MM team and MyComputerCareer who have dedicated their time to support me and my family, and created incredible spaces for learning for our children. We look forward to making more memories in our beautiful home.”
Military Makeover viewers can watch from demolition to reveal day, while inspired by the stories behind how each family turned their hardships into recovery.
“With the help of our gracious sponsor, we make dreams become reality for those who have risked so much for our country,” said Montel Williams, Host of Military Makeover. “Meeting Daniel Burgess and his loved ones served as a reminder that nothing is more important than family.”
