Woman loses everything in a house fire

This is an urgent call to help a wonderful woman, Darlah Eikeland Kapusta who resides in San Jacinto, California. She works at a renowned casino and resort in Riverside County. She depends on tips to make ends meet. Her home burned to the ground on April 14th, 2014. Physically she is fine, but she has lost her car and all her possessions--even sentimental mementos and photographs. Most devastating to her, both of her pets perished. She had no homeowners insurance and her life is in complete chaos. She battled cancer recently, and, at the time, had no insurance to pay for the costly medical bills. Those bills took away any extra funds she had stored away for a rainy day. For now she is staying with her sister who lives near her. But she needs a great deal of assistance. Does anyone in the local area have an apartment she can rent?

If you live locally, or elsewhere, can you do what you can to help this courageous woman? She has been very reluctant to allow me to post this fundraising website. It took some arm-twisting, but here it is! Although she resists taking charity, she needs all the help she can at the present time. Can you find it in your heart to chip in $5 or $10, anything at all, to help this cause and get her back on her feet? She wears a size 7 shoe and only has the clothes that her sister, co-workers, and I have collected for her. If that is impossible at present, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. She is eternally grateful for any kind of help she can get at this time. Thank you in advance to all who can help"“-in any way.
