Apartment fire

Some of you know our mother has been sick with late stage cancer for a while.  She has been dependent on oxygen for months, and started a fire.  Six units were completely destroyed, including hers and my younger sister's home.  Right now my mom, step mother, sister, and her school-age kids are homeless and everything was destroyed.  My mom is currently in the burn unit at Parkland with severe burns to 39% of her body.  Her prognosis is poor at this time. 

My sister and her kids could use any help you can offer.  I'm starting this fund, but would also be able to direct you to an address where you could donate clothes, kitchen items, furniture, etc.  They have to start over from scratch.
