Gofundme has requested that I update our story to include the following information:
For those of you that don't know my, my name is Alexis and I met Diana while working in Ocean City, MD.
Diana has been in our close "work family" circle of friends since at least 2007.
The funds that we have and continue to recieve will be withdrawn and given directy to Diana in order to provide food, water, gasoline, money for bills, or whatever she may need.
As far as delivering the money to her, once our goal has been met, the money will be withdrawn by Diana's brother Richard, who is the beneficiary on this account, and will be delievered by hand directly to Diana either by Richard or her Mother Jane as soon as they can fly into the island.
As many of you know our dear friend Diana relocated to Rincon, Puerto Rico about 2 years ago where she lives with her boyfriend, Javi and almost 1 year old baby girl, Kora.
As most of the island was spared during the first hurricane, Irma, they were not so fortunate for the most recent, Maria. Most of the island was severely damaged and remains with no electricity or means of communication and it is predicated this may continue for up to 6 months.
Although Diana is safe, the island is suffering badly and unfortunately Diana and her family will soon suffer as well, as resources will become scarce and employment will be very difficult.
We will be collecting monetary donations to be given directly to Diana and her family with the hopes of providing her some financial relief.
