The deadly Camp Fire has wiped out pretty much the entire town of Paradise, California. High winds and dry conditions created the perfect storm to fuel this fast-moving Northern California wildfire. It is the worst fire in California history in terms of structures lost.
Our parents, Bob and Dtim Tatum, escaped at the last minute with only the clothes on their backs and their dog, Malika. Their home, camper and belongings are gone. We are thankful they made it out safely and are staying with friends in Chico.
Both Bob and Dtim feel very fortunate to be alive and safe. They have reluctantly agreed to let us set up this fundraiser so they can get through the upcoming months. We know it is hard for them to accept financial assistance, but the reality is that they are left with nothing. They have to start over again and any help would be greatly appreciated. Please keep Bob, Dtim and all of California in your thoughts and prayers.
