Family in Fort Myers Loses Everything in Fire

A family in Fort Myers, Florida lost everything after a fire completely destroyed their home. Michelle Gillis and her teenage daughter, Rayne, who has autism, are now left with nothing. They lost absolutely everything... right before Christmas.

They were left with no house, no money, no shoes, and no clothes. A vehicle was also completely destroyed, so Michelle is also in need of transportation.

Michelle was taken to the hospital with 2nd and 3rd-degree burns.

Worst of all, there was NO insurance on the house. Please help this family.

USA Weekly has received permission from the family to start this GoFundMe. The majority of donations will go towards Michelle and her teenage daughter. A portion of donations will go towards another individual who also lost everything they had.

If you would like to help, please leave a donation. Any amount helps, especially to someone who lost everything that have.
