Jezrael & Rhyder in NYC need some help from u & me

So first of all,  I want to say that Jez has nothing to do with this, she would never reach out for help because she’s so used to being independent and handling things on her own and because she doesn’t want to ever feel like she’s a burden on someone else.  Many of you are strangers to me.. but we are united by this amazing person whom we all love, who just happens to be my cousin and friend and who has been faced with some very difficult decisions none of us should have to make alone, much less with a young child and no help.  Jez has called NYC her home now for over 15 years, in that time she has developed friendships that are now like a family network of people she trusts and loves.  Jez worked so hard to be able to live the dream in NYC, but it’s much more difficult to maintain a healthy, manageable life when sudden changes occur that you are wholly unprepared to deal with.  Jez works so hard and would never expect a handout, but her hard work can’t help her get caught up right now with all of the recent events. I’m asking that you will respect Jezrael and Rhyder’s privacy as she didn’t ask for this, but rather offer your support.. I know it’s after the holidays and funds are tight for so many of us, but any little bit will go a long way. I guess I’m hoping what you’ll see is someone in need of a little extra love and support and come together with me to do just that.
