OAKLAND, N.J. — An Oakland mother battling ALS will have a newly-remodeled and handicap-accessible bathroom, thanks to NBC's "George to the Rescue."

On Friday, the network will reveal the renovations to Donna Myhre, 41, who is wheelchair-bound.

Montvale's Fieldstone Middle School math teacher was diagnosed four years ago, a month after becoming pregnant with her daughter, Mikayla.

"We were so shocked to be selected," Myhre told Daily Voice. "A true miracle. Our hope is that the bathroom will make tasks like bathing, brushing teeth and more easier.

"It is getting harder to perform these tasks without assistance," she added, "but hopefully with the changes, I can regain some independence."
