Flood Victim's Rescue Fund

My nephew's home was ruined in the flooding in Houston during Hurricane Harvey.  Robert and his wife have a 7 year old daughter and a 5 year old who is severely and profoundly handicapped with Metochromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD).  Much of Cori's medical equiptment was lost,  all of their belongings, furniture, clothing, household goods, etc. are destroyed, and there is major damage to their home.  Some of the damage is visible in the photos that follow this message.  In one photo you can see Cori's stander, out by the street in one of the piles of rubble.  Cori would really like to get back in the stander and be upright for a while.  The last photo is Cori, Robert's 5 year old.  The damage to their home is so severe that they will have to demolish it and begin again.  They need money immediately for their daughter's medical care, to rent an apartment  while they wait to get their home rebuilt, to replace some of their belongings, to cover insurance deductibles and to help rebuild their lives.  This account is set up so that only Robert can get the money, not me, not anyone else.  They truly have nothing but their love for each other, family, friends, and their faith in God.  Please help this deserving young family who has already been through so much begin their recovery from this disaster.  Any amount will help.  Thank you so much! (and check out the thank you video in Update 4 that the whole family made.)
