Help Elaine get on her feet!

After losing her son, Mark a US Marine, just 6 months ago, Elaine has experienced yet another tragedy. This morning her apartment building caught fire. She, her dog and her cat are all out safely; however, she now has no home. She is left with what little she could grab as she ran out. All of Mark's honorable memorabilia, uniform, medals, flag presented by the USMC and many many pictures of him where all in her apartment when it caught fire. These are the things she holds most dearly to her heart as she is grieving his loss.

Elaine is now staying in a hotel with her pets until she can find/afford another place to go. Anything you could spare would truly help her in this time of need. Due to major back and neck surgery she is very limited in her ability to work long hours, which is putting her in a tough place financially. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help out.
