Lost Everything to Home Fire Alaska

I am Devastated here I came into Anchorage for Emergency knee surgery and left at 9am tuesday and at 9pm tuesday night my neighbors and Alaska STate Trooper Garcia called me and said my Trailer was fully engulfed and was a Total Loss everything I own my whole Life, memories and all my hard work to Live my dream life Alone in Alaska. I have Given Freely of myself always helping out those in need any way I can giving rides, loaning money, my time, my work, my harvested meats whatever is needed of me or what I have to offer at the time. I Give Free usage of my Bear Bait stations to Wounded Warriors each and every year as my small way of giving back to those who gave so much for all of us to live Freely. I do what I can in my own way to make this world a Better place and have always said....."If I don`t do it then who will?" I have worked so VERY hard for so long building me my Subsistence Life and Home here on the Copper River all my Blood, sweat and tears to make my Dreams and Goals a reality which has now been taken ALL away from me and I have NOTHING NO Insurance, NO money, Nothing to Barter or Trade it is ALL Gone and NO way to even start to even think clearly right now. I NEED everything I just got 3 pairs of sweat pants, 1 package of socks, 1 package of underware and 1 package of T-shirts just to get by for the next few weeks while I am healing up from my knee Surgery. I also have a Broken Back which I broke my L-3, L-4 and L-5 and in February I was found to be Permanently Disabled by my back specialist and my primary care giver as well and in the long slow process of signing up for DIsability. I also currently have 4 Broken ribs falling off a cargo trailer because of my bad knee gave out on me 2 weeks ago too. I have just gotten Hearing aides and new Partial front teeth too so I have MANY Health Issues I am dealing with. I also have Diverticulitus a intestine disorder which causes me to get food poisoning a lot and very Painful which there is NO cure for me except for me to watch what I eat and eat more healthy foods stay away from GMO processed and opreserved foods and that there was a leading factor into my choice of living in rural Alaska harvesting my own Healthy foods. I have NO Income at all I only recieve Food stamps and Medicaid and I am VERY Thankfula nd Blessed to be receiving that. I just do NOT know where to turn or where to go or what even to think right now. I PLEASE Ask that ONLY Money Donations be Given at this time as I MUST Prioritize what exactly I need to get by and go in that order. I have NO Guns left of my own at all to Harvest my Meats Moose, Caribou, Bear, Grouse, DUcks, rabbits, swuirrels, Etc. I have NO winter clothers, NO clothes whatsoever and NO fridge, freezers or stove or microwave. I have Nothing at all but the little bit of clothes mentioned above and 2 pairs of old junk jeans, 2 shirts, 2 underware and 2 socks and that is completely it. I MUST start from scratch and will have to BEG and ASK for ANY Donations from my very caring friends whom I am truely Blessed and Thankful to have in my Life. I have over 2000 people in my Facebook personal Group named...."Alone in Alaska Adventures" where I share all of my pictures, videos and my Lifestyle up here living off the land as much as I can Subsistence Living and was working and almost totally Off Grid too. I am NOT one to ask for Help or one to even accept the Help when offered but NOW I have NO Choice but to ASK, BEG and Accept Anything that is kindly Donated and offered to me to Help me get through this somehow someway and I can ONLY put all of this into the Lord`s Hands and let him touch people`s caring and giving hearts so they may find it deep within side their own selves to HELP me out of some of my misery I am currently in. I do NOT know how else to do this But to BEG for ANY help I can get as I do NOT want to give up on my Hopes, Dreams and Goals I have worked so VERY hard to achieve and really NEED ANY Help from anyone. Please find it in your Heart, Mind and SOul and ask the Lord for Guidance for me and also for you in making a Donation to PLease Help me through this even if it is only 5.00 as I have Nothing at all right now. 

"Please Lord God, Please watch over me and guide me through this such devastating and disastorous time in my life and Please show Mercy upon me, Wisdom, Knowledge and Guidance. I put ALL My Trust into You Lord God that you will get me through this somehow someway and that this will be a Positive Learning experience unbeknownst to me WHY for it is Not up to me to Know Why Lord God for You ONLY Know the real Reason for all this to happen.
