Help for the High Family

Okay Good Samaritans. This family is in need of our help.  Rather than try to explain it myself  these are Jess' words.  Please do whatever you can do! 


My family really needs your thoughts and prayers right now. Have been dealing with mysterious health issues for awhile now. Chronic fatigue, intense headaches, memory loss, weird rashes, hair loss, confusion, depression, water retention, facial swelling and chest pain. Then Sidney has been dealing with constant hives, rashes, swelling lips, fatigue and chest pain. We’ve been to the docs trying to figure it out with alllll the tests. Mostly coming back normal. We had to take Sidney to the ER a few days ago when her lips swelled up. They told us they thought we were dealing with something environmental. So we tested for mold. It was positive. Upon tearing walls apart we found what appeared to be black mold pretty quickly. Experts have now confirmed “toxic black mold”.
They say this is exactly what is causing our illnesses. We left the house immediately and are in a hotel. Our homeowners insurance doesn’t cover mold OR lodging. So we will have to pay for an insane amount of construction ourselves. We just bought this “dream house” 8 months ago. We have to get rid of most of our belongings. Anything that may contain spores. We may lose everything. We are sending the kids to grandparents and I can’t go there as I’m allergic to cats and am already having lung issues. I’ve already had to close my business and am trying to build a new location which is taking all the dollars.....and now this....all happening mid pandemic. I’m so sick, I don’t look like me, my hairs falling out and I’m exhausted. I’m worried for my children.
Please send us your prayers. We really don’t know what to do right now.
