Monday night (10/20/19) Faye's house was hit by the major tornado which came through that area.  She's safe, but her house is severely damaged, as you can see from the photos. 

Faye (who also goes by Faith) has quite a story, part of which is that she's a breast cancer and thyroid cancer survivor and is also a kidney transplant recipient. She's retired, but substitute teaches to make ends meet. As all teachers know, she's on a very limited budget.  Turns out she will owe $6,000 in deductibles alone (separate deductibles for the house, fence and storage unit in the back yard), plus she still has to pay her mortgage, even though she can't live in the house. 

Faye is an incredibly resilient and faith-filled woman who has withstood more trials in her life than seems reasonable for one person, and through it all she continues to give of her time and herself, while inspiring others she encounters along the way. Even while having to live in a hotel, she has shared that room with a friend and former colleague who is 20 years her senior. Her friend's home wasn't damaged but she has no electricity, and Qainta's mom didn't want her to be alone in the dark.   Faye will have to stay in the hotel and eat out until they can restore the home to a somewhat liveable state. Restaurant gift cards would also be a blessing, to help cover her meals while she's living in the hotel. 

While neither Qainta nor Faye would ever ask, I know they both tremendously appreciate any and all help.
