Apartment Fire- Left With Nothing

On January 30th, my mom’s apartment building caught fire. Luckily, no one was physically harmed. However, the fire was devastating and nothing survived. She was only left with what she wore to work that day. She’s left without even the smallest essentials such as a toothbrush and shampoo. She’s already been through so much recently. In August her son, and my brother passed away. The fire also took irreplaceable belongings such as photos and the only belongings we had left of his. Then, she recently was diagnosed with cervical cancer and luckily after surgeries and treatment is now cancer free. This is the last thing she should have to deal with right now. I’m asking for any help that could allow her to start to rebuild her life.
