Elizabeth's Hurricane Relief Fund

Our family has been hit hard by Hurricane Harvey in Bellaire, TX in ways we could never anticipate.  My teenage daughter and I were extremely fortunate to be rescued by boat and taken to a shelter.  We are indebted with our lives to the brave men and women of the Coast Guard who saved us.  When the roads became passable, we were able to assess the damage to our flooded house. Unfortunately, we lost all of the first-floor contents and, in removing sheetrock, we found numerous structural issues. Our home is uninhabitable due to the extent of the damage and the black mold found when the sheetrock was removed.  Our limited flood insurance does not cover relocation costs and we have been told that FEMA has minimal resources for our relocation.  We do not know how long we will be displaced before a contractor can come in to fix our home given the demand for their services.

I am aware of the enormous number of people profoundly affected by this horrific storm. To be honest, I hate to ask for any assistance. I am a nurse who cares for cancer patients and it is in every fiber of my being to give and assist others. Helping others brings me such joy. I have to swallow my pride now because sadly, much to my chagrin, we need help.  Everything we raise that I do not need, I promise to donate to someone else. Throughout this crisis, the silver lining has been witnessing the incredibly generous spirit of people everywhere. My family is beyond grateful for anything you are able to give.  We will pay this forward.  

With heartfelt gratitude,
Elizabeth & Aria
