Hargraves/Harvey Relief Fund

My testimony can be seen via public Facebook live video under my name. But for those who can't view, I will give you the short version without all the tears...Back on March 12th of this year, I woke up blind in three fourths of my left eye with no previous health issues what so ever. After numerous tests I was diagnosed with MS on St. Patrick's Day March 17th of 2017. After MRI after MRI and more extensive testing, it was confirmed on August 27th by my neurologist and treatments begin on September 28th. On that same day my health issue was confirmed, we Proud Houstonians suffered the wrath of Hurricane Harvey in which my family lost our house and cars to the mercy of the water. Myself, my 11 year old son which is my shadow, his mother, and my sons boxer Derby waded through the waist high water to safety and are currently rebuilding anew along with many others in the Houston and surrounding areas. Currently in a hotel and awaiting an apartment for the next few months while we rebuild our house. Thankfully we are one of the few with homeowners and flood insurance and the stress and emotional rollercoaster of it all is still great...I thank God for the blessings he gives me and my family daily, whether big or small, and I ALWAYS keep a SMILE on my face knowing no matter what obstacles you cross in life, you will get through and overcome every storm! At this point in time I continue to keep my head held high in prayer and continue to push for my family to do the same. Not just for us...but for all affected by the storm. My personal health issue and the flood have just become overwhelming both financially and emotionally. I continue to Smile knowing much better things are in store for us all ahead! This account was simply made just for help with it all...I don't want anyone to feel pressured to donate and I will never look at you any different. You all in my support system have been the biggest blessing I have received and continue to receive! As well as my job and the loving family I have! I love and send prayers to each and every one of you! I felt this was the easiest way to respond to everyone asking how or what they can do to help. I set it for 6 simply because that is my sons birth year as well as my birthday and our lucky number. Nothing else. Please share both this as well as my FB live video if possible so people know I am genuine and from the heart. Life is as real as it gets....peace, love, and happiness. Smile Always!#HoustonStrong
