In June 2003 Diane died as a result of heart problems. Mark died 16 days later of a heart attack. Their eight kids were left to grieve a double, unbelievable loss. The two oldest siblings moved back home and took legal guardianship of their brothers and sisters, which enabled the family to stay together. Otherwise the kids would have ended up in foster care. To assist the Cadigan-Scott family in this new phase of their lives, community support was marshaled from local police officers, firefighters, teachers, church members, business owners and others who wanted to help the kids fix up their run-down, 1400-square-foot house. But money was scarce. During the week that the home was being made over by Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Ty Pennington performed a free one-man concert where he played and sang guitar. The other design team members and production crew also got up on stage to join in the fun. The community came out in force for the show and raised thousands of dollars that are being used to help the family in a variety of ways.
