BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Messages of love and support went on the floor of the 2016 St. Jude Dream Home in Biloxi Tuesday. Dream Home builders and St. Jude supporters celebrated the home with a floor signing.
The approximately 3,400 square foot, five bedroom, three bathroom home valued at $350,000 is off of Cedar Lake Road in the Malpass West subdivision. Construction will be complete by the beginning of March and those helping to build the home said it is a labor of love. "I went and visited the hospital about three months ago. Every time I'm here uh, the little kids keep appearing in my eyes. So that is what I'm doing it for," said Ken Lanahan with Elliott Homes.
Money raised from the Dream Home Giveaway helps St. Jude Children's Research Hospital help children and their families battle cancer. Andrea Courville with St. Jude said, "No family receives a bill from treatment, travel, or food. Because all we want a family to worry about is helping their child live. And it's programs like the Dream Home and the amount of money that it raises that helps keep that possible for those families.
