Relief for Kandi and John (Almeda fire victims)

***Please, I ask that you respect my aunts request for space and privacy during this time. She is already quite overwhelmed from loss, so overwhelming her with phone calls is not ideal (as of now, she is doing fine, physically). If you have questions please contact myself (Tawnya) (707) [phone redacted] or Tauryn (707) [phone redacted]. Thank you***

Hi everyone, it is very unfortunate that I have to break the news that my Aunt Kandi has been a victim of the fires happening in Oregon (the fire specially known as the Alameda fire). Her entire neighborhood burned to the ground as the fire swept through Talent up towards Medford, leaving almost nothing behind. Unfortunately she was at work at the time of the evacuation and was not allowed back home to aide her fiance in evacuating their home. Her fiance was only able to evacuate their three dogs (having to unfortunately leave behind their two cats, Miss May and JuJu, as well as their bunny, Strawberry - and though she has yet been able to go back to where her house once stood, she is certain her two cats and bunny have perished in their home. This Go Fund Me is simply to help in any way shape or form with what they are currently going through. Having lost everything, it's quite hard to form a number, but anything will help at this time.

I will update as soon as I can as to what her currents needs are (hotels, food, pet care, gas, clothes, etc that will surely be needed). The status of her job is unknown right now due to not knowing what all has been burned by the fires raging in Medford. Please keep my aunt and her fiance in your thoughts and prayers as this is such a difficult time for them.

Thank you, Tawnya and Tauryn
