As many of you already know Hurricane Erika hit the island of Dominica where Myles just arrived a day before. Myles shipped most all his items to Med School in a barrel through a shipping company that arrived 1 day before Hurricane Erika. It was held in customs at the Dominica airport that was hit by a flash flood with all items now gone! Before he left he packed nearly all of his clothes, new hiking shoes and other pairs, scrubs, rain gear, and medical school books and supplies to start his 1st semester. I could go on for a long time but basically EVERYTHING I mean even down to tooth paste and dental floss for his 16 month stay! He literally has the shoes on his feet and a suit case you would take on a weekend trip that he thankfully packed as a backup in case he wasn’t able to receive his barrel for a few days. Unfortunately Dominica is not a big island nor does it have the stores available for him to try to buy clothing and supplies to replace what he lost. Myles is on a very tight budget on student loans and this was a huge loss right at the start of this next exciting chapter of his life. He starts classes on September 7th and we have a chance to help provide him some peace of mind and security knowing he is well thought of and will be taken care of after his loss.
