Help Dana— hurricane survivor

Please help Dana Austin, my God-sister, rebuild after losing everything in hurricane Michael. Dana is a 30+ year resident of Florida. She lost nearly 100% of her worldly possessions when her trailer and warehouse were badly damaged during hurricane Michael. Her self-employed business cleaning vacation rentals is now dismantled with no hope to rebuild for many months or years. She lived In Panama City Beach. Her only family is her daughter Taylor , who lives in Destin and is graduating from nursing school in December. Her nursing school was also destroyed in the hurricane. Dana and her dog Carly are living with Taylor, temporarily, while she tries to salvage a few things and determine where she will go and what she will do. I consider her my sister. We are doing what we can to help, but are hoping we can raise enough money to give her some hope and peace of mind through this next year.

My husband and I live in Huntsville, Alabama. My name is Ashlee Grove. My mother and father grew up with Dana’s parents, who became my godparents in 1974–Linda and David Bryant. Our fathers are both deceased, and Dana and I both lost our brothers to suicide. Dana has been unable to find her mother for months. She is perhaps living out of the states. There has been a lot of loss for us both. Dana needs help!

Thank you for any help!
