On Monday, August 28th, own home in Beaumont Texas was destroyed by Hurricane Harvey in a flood. Flood waters reached the roof of our home, have stayed for five days and are just now starting to recede. Two years ago when I was diagnosed with Breast and Lymphatic Cancer we canceled our flood insurance because we needed the extra money to pay for my treatment and surgeries. Our home was 33 years old, was not built in a flood plain, and had never had water damage of any kind. We could never have foreseen such a devastating natural disaster taking away everything we own. We will most likely have to throw away everything and strip our entire house down to the studs, replace ceilings, walls, bathrooms, cabinets, floors, all appliances, doors, lights, and furniture.
We have had several friends ask how they can send us financial help to rebuild and have asked us to start a gofundme.
Matthew, Cooper, Silas, and I would appreciate any and all help in rebuilding our home.
We love you all,
Marilyn J. Bean
