Georgia On My Mind

My cousin Georgia Packett and her son live on Big Pine Key Island in the Keys of Florida. They evacuated prior to Hurricane Irma striking causing complete and total devastation.  She has yet to return due to the lack of supporting infrastructure i.e.; water/sewer/electric.  Her entire neighborhood was flooded and caused extreme physical damage due to Irma’s high winds.

She hasn’t been able to return to work and still has no idea when that will be possible.

In addition to the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma, lack of a home to return to, no means to work to bring in the necessary funding required to get back on her feet, Georgia is battling lung cancer.  She has more chemo treatments and we’re all praying for her.  Presently Georgia is staying with a nephew in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Georgia is a proud lady who at 60 years old has never asked anyone for help in her lifetime, but she, like many others dealing with the wrath of Irma, is humbled to have to require assistance.   If you can find it in your heart to lend Georgia a hand in this desperate time it would be greatly appreciated.  Family and friends, let’s all pitch in and do what we can to help Georgia to be able to return home and get back to a sense of normalcy and ultimately to complete her cancer treatments with the best possible outcome.

Thank you for any support you can provide no matter the amount.
