Desmond Family House Fire

A new year, a fresh start, a time to remember the past and look forward to the future. That was the plan for the Desmond family. But that plan was cut short after a house fire that took place early this morning on New Years Day.
Lisa and Arthur have experienced the ultimate loss too many times to count.

About 7 years ago, Samantha (Lisa’s daughter) suffered a life threatening asthma attack that almost took her life. She has been fighting for it ever since. The two young boys pictured are Samantha’s two children. Lisa and Arthur have been providing for them ever since the accident.

A little over a year ago, Lisa’s eldest son, Jesse, went home to be with the Lord all too soon.

Today, they lost their home, all of their possessions and their only vechicle.

Lisa and Arthur are the kind of people who stretch out their arms to help, even when their hands are empty. Many of you have asked how you can help so I created this go fund me page for that. Join me in helping the Desmond family.
