Flood & Recovery Marable Family

$10,190 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 219 people in 32 months

My family and I have suffered some serious tragedy over the last couple weeks. We never thought we would be asking for help like this, over the last couple decades my wife and I have worked hard to drive our success without handouts. The flooding of our new home though, has changed the paradigm.
While our 1yr old son was recovering from his final corrective surgery, a freak rainfall flooded our neighborhood and our home.
My wife & our 2 girls were trapped by rising flooding and required boat rescue from our flooded home. This while our 1yr old was recovering in the PICU from surgery that didn't go as well as planned.


Now we have maxed out deductibles on our health ins for 2yrs in a row and face maxing out our flood ins deductibles. ZJ being in the picu has halted our income as we both balance caring for the girls and staying at the hospital for our youngest. My wife was taking a day off of hospital duty when the flood hit and was faced with her worst fear, drowning/water rising. She has never agreed to a cruise largely because of this fear. She faced waters rising and boat rescue like a true hero.
Any help will go towards deductibles 1st and then comforts for the 3 children.

Been a while since an update but I've got great news. Unfortunately the house could not be repaired as our insurance would not insure us at the same elevation. Raising a brick house is as costly as building new sooooo, we're building new. I'm happy to report we have architect plans which have just passed the city permit office. I'll attach some pics so yall can see just where we are.

We met the goal tonight!! A nice man named Roy decided to put in the remaining 1100.
Special thanks to adoreeliquid.com for over 1100, Mike Vapes, Phenom & my auntie Tracy all put 500 each. Premium vape supply, Southsidevaporiumal.com or Heavy Metal Vaper or Andrew as all his friends know him. My whole vape fam was on the list along with dozens I've never met.
No more raising the goal. I will keep the page open to post updates to the process. How the money helps and where it goes.
Again thank you to everyone I didn't get a chance to name. Especially those with little to give but still threw 5 or 10 in, I know too well, the value of a dollar highly depends on how many you have available. So a special thanks to those kind hearted folks.
With much love from my entire Family, we move forward with our spirits lifted and the knowledge that we were never alone, help was only waiting to be called on. Love all of you.

My wifes company has come through twice in a row to keep a roof over our heads. Hargrove Engineering is going above and beyond to take care of their coworkers. They even gave us gloves and trashbags to start the cleanup and I hear we may have a crew here this weekend to throw some muscles on to the effort. Not just us but at least 40 others affected by this disaster. We both went to meet the ins adjuster today. They were very cool and frank. Allstate has all of our policies and has been fair in fees and benefits of our accts.

Hello. I don't have any money to give but I can offer prayers and possibly send items to my friend Dominique in Mass to get your family. What are sizes for the kiddos? If I don't have any from my kiddos, I'll try to send a gift card or 2 to get them what they need. Best Kristen

I am so proud of my nephew and his family. They have had to face many difficulties and have done so with courage. Seeing all the people that stepped up to help them financially, emotionally and by getting the word out just warms my heart. Please keep sharing the gofundme page. It is going to be a long road but they are survivors and they will get through this with continued support. Love you guys!

Been a subscriber for about a year, and I enjoy your unique delivery of your videos. More importantely, when a friend is in need, true friends pick them up and support them in any way possible! No amount of money can replace your memorobelia lost, but your memories of each other can endure any amount of tragedy! Family is the one constant in life and it should be treated with dignitity and love! I hope your son recovers quickly and completely, and my small donation helps you your family rebuild new memories! Keep your head up, and best wishes to you and your family!
