Family Surprised by Home Makeover


FORRESTON (WIFR) -- Since discovering she had breast cancer just a few months ago, a Forreston woman has had to go through a lot, but on Thursday she and her family got a big surprise.

Kelli and Jeremy Kappes and their three daughters were very shocked when walking into their newly renovated home after returning from an "all expenses paid" vacation.

Kelli was diagnosed with cancer in February and has since had surgery to remove a tumor. Her work Gates Auto Body and Jeremy's job Fairway Ford Lincoln worked together to send the family to the Wisconsin Dells and help pay for the materials for the makeover.

The family is holding a benefit April 26th at Christy's Bar in Freeport. All of the proceeds will go towards the unexpected medical expenses.
