Daughters Car Caught Fire 9/27/17

Hi, my name is Justin Clark, I am 45 years old and live in Placerville CA. I am also currently between jobs right now. I am a father of 3 awesome children and until recently, married for 25 years. For My last job, I was in homecare for my wife Tanisha Clark. Tanisha was diagnosed with late stage colorectal cancer 5 years ago and since January 1st we have been taking care of her here at home. Before then I was working as an independent contractor in flooring for 16 years. However the reason I am reaching out to you today is for my 22 year old daughter Mckenna Clark. Mckenna and her mom were very close. Tanisha passed on August 29, 2017 right after 45th birthday. Mckenna would travel from Sacramento to Placerville on her days off and stay the night on the couch up here so she could help take care of her mom and spend time with her and give me the time to run errands and have some me time. also, so we could all go to grief counciling together every other Thursday, after Tanisha passed. So here is our situation. Wednesday while driving up to visit family, her car caught fire and completely burned. I feel that we were very lucky that we are all ok. She just got this car 4 months ago and she has put a lot of money into it. The coverage she bought doesn't cover the damage. It has been so tough dealing with the loss of her mom and now she doesn't have transportation to get to work or to make it to our counciling. After the last year, I don't have much to offer her as far as money. I am now a single parent raising a teenager and I am currently unemployed. So through the suggestion of a close friend, I am asking for help for my daughter through gofundme. Our goal is to raise enough money for a reliable vehicle so she can get to and from work and come up for her family counciling. Mckenna has always worked so hard to be here for us through some extremely tough times. So I am asking for your help so we can be there for her.... Thank you for reading. Sincerely, Justin Clark
