Sale of home to help fight breast cancer

In central Kentucky there are hundreds of homes for sale right now.

Recently one homebuilder in Jessamine county decided to build a home, but he wasn't looking to make a profit rather give back to a really good cause.

In this month's Talk Pink WKYT's Amber Philpott has the story of a house built with love and kindness as a way to fight breast cancer.

Some say a house becomes a home by the love that fills it!

If that is true, a soon to be finished new construction in Brannon Crossing in Nicholasville was literally built with love.

"We've had 51 businesses and individuals donate and make contributions to the house, mostly contractors," said Jeffrey Gale of Gale Custom Homes.

Jeffrey Gale is a homebuilder, his latest construction was built with purpose rather than profit.

"We have a personal affinity to breast cancer and so we decided to do it for the Susan G. Komen group," said Gale.

That's right a portion of the sale of the home will go to help find a cure for breast cancer.

Driving by you might get the hint when you see the pink dumpster, maybe even the pink portable toilet.

The house will be finished in a few weeks, and its already been sold!

The new owners will have all the bells and whistles, but its the front door that might have the most meaning.

"A lady that is suffering from breast cancer donated a stained glass door, I think that is really neat. She really saw that door and said I see the ribbons in there," said Gale.

Its house with a built in story, one that Jeffrey Gale got started, but so many others helped build in an effort to fight breast cancer.

"That we had all of these people come together and make a difference that's the story it really is," said Gale.

Gale and the new homeowners are planning a block party for later in June to celebrate.
