My sister, Rachelle Bisaillon, has lived on St. John, USVI for 20+ years and Hurricane Irma & Maria has devastated her 4 businesses and all that she has built over the last 20 years in just a few hours. She is a 2x cancer survivor and has survived many hurricanes in the islands but this was like no other storm and has challenged her like nothing else.
The island has been destroyed and as her business can only survive with tourism, it is going to be a long road and struggle to survive. We thank god that she is alive and safe.
Without water, power, fuel, and food until rescue efforts can proceed following the passing of the storm. It is expected that the island will be out of power for 4-6 months which will leave her without income to pay her daily expenses to live and clean-up after the storm.
Obviously, life is worth more than all the money in the world, but we want to ask for the help of family, friends, and others to help her rebuild. It will be a costly expense to recover from all that was lost and begin to rebuild.
