brothers, James, Jacob, and Jordan, from being split up and sent to
foster care. They took them in to their already cramped house they lived
in with their two children, Mason and Walker. With a stretched budget
and no hope of moving into a larger house, the Suggs family was
struggling to accommodate the expanded family of seven in the small
house Derrick Suggs inherited from his grandfather when they got the
miracle they never expected. ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
surprised the Suggs family with a huge crew of volunteers ready to build
the home of their dreams. The Century, LLC. boxing and MMA equipment
