HGTV's Dream Home Winner 2010

She lost her home during Hurricane Katrina.  But 63-year-old Myra Lewis refused to give up.  She's used to fighting the odds.   As the mother of a special needs kid, Lewis was told when her autistic son was just five, that he wouldn't be able to learn.  He's a gifted artist now, and finishing up his Associates Degree in Fine Arts.  Despite the hardships that the New Orleans native has had to deal with, Lewis, a self-described homebody, thinks she is one of the luckiest people alive.   She's the winner of this year's HGTV Dream Home Giveaway, worth $2 million.  Along with the beautiful, Pueblo-style home near Santa Fe, New Mexico, the prize package includes a new GMC Terrain, and $500,00.

Lewis, a former science teacher and Peace Corps volunteer is joining us on CNN Newsroom Saturday at 4pm Eastern.  Tune in to learn what she did that helped her get the home of her dreams.   Share your thoughts, and we'll share some of them on the show.
