AMERICAN FORK, Utah — Syndi Knowlton is an inspiration to many Utah parents. She and her husband Tom have three children with special needs. Aside from learning to manage complex family and medical situations, the Knowltons have made a point of sharing what they’ve learned with others through a non-profit organization, the Utah Kids Foundation

But recently, the Knowlton’s challenges have been piling up. Tom went through a period of unemployment while Syndi was faced with serious health problems of her own.

One of many parents they’ve helped through their foundation is Riley Bleyle. When Riley learned the Knowltons were worried about keeping up with the bills, and even threatened with the possibility of losing their home, she nominated them for a visit from the Fox 13 Dream Team.

Watch the video to see what happened.

If you know someone who could use a visit from the Dream Team, fill out the nomination form here. Tell us the story of the person you are nominating, as it might be told on TV, and suggest a gift that could make a difference in their life.
