This is so disgusting.
The Cerda family was featured on ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition after they asked the show to help them and their two daughters, who they said suffered from immunodeficiency disease.
In their appeal to the show, the family claimed that the girls illnesses were caused by toxins in their home due to mold. Their daughters were forced to wear masks and were even featured in a video posted by the Immune Deficiency Foundation (above).
Unfortunately, it seems that parents, Chuck and Terri Cerda, were a fraud and duped the show into believing they were a struggling couple trying to help their family.
After they were forced to put their house up for sale when they couldn't afford the home's increasing costs, the two girls were taken away from their parents for suspected child abuse and neglect.
After several tests and examinations, six different doctors testified that neither of the girls were sick. In fact, one of the doctors told a judge in the case against the parents that the girls were victims of medical child abuse.
Unbelievable. And so terribly tragic. We're just thankful that the girls are no longer in their parents' custody and can hopefully recover from this. Chuck and Terri should be behind bars.
