My name is Mary Schwartz and this is my brother Larry.
I'm trying to help him because he was a victim of the Journey's End Mobile Home Park which burned so fast
that the residents did not have much time, if any to vacate.
Larry has Parkinson's Disease and lived alone. His last medication was taken before bedtime at 10:00pm and the fire started around 3:00am. He was awaken by the fire and unable to run out, hence, he had to crawl on his hands and knees, suffering burns all over his body and was transported to the UC Davis ICU Burn Unit in Sacramento. The doctors said he needs surgery for skin grafting and they are operating on him tomorrow morning, October 13th.
My brother has lost everything; his home, his beloved pet, his much needed scooter and of course all of his possessions. The doctor's said that he will be in the hospital a minimum of a month.
The funds will go for medical bills which will be insurmountable, the financial ability to relocate, a new scooter, clothing and the human necessities of life.
