Reese Family Relief after Harvey

My name is Lauren Proctor, and I live in Central Texas where it remained dry through the terror of Hurricane Harvey.  Three months ago, my best friend Sandra and her family moved to Kingwood, Texas, one of the suburbs of Houston.  My heart is aching to be down there to help, but I am unable to get there and they need far more than what my husband and I can provide.  Please meet my good friends, Tim, Sandra, 16yo Brandon with special needs, and 2yo Madelyn  Reese.  Tim is an Army veteran and nurse in the Houston Medical Center and Sandra runs their busy special needs household.  They live in Kingwood, Texas and have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey. 

On Tuesday August 29th, as the flood waters continued to rise and fill the downstairs of their home, Sandi, Brandon and Madelyn were evacuated by boat.  In fact, arescuer paddled a kayak into their home and rescued them on the stairs.  It took 2 boats, 3 trucks, a bus, and jeep to get them to a safe/dry vacant home in Kingwood. That same day we were transferred to a community center, hospital, 2 shelters, 2 schools and tried to get medevac helicopter out of Kingwood but it never came.  So many people came together to rescue our friends the Reese's while Tim was stationed at the Emergency Command Center in the Medical Center helping others.  I cannot imagine the fear and trauma all four of them indured seperated through the horrific storm and subsequent rescue.

Unfortunately they did not have flood insurance, who would have thought it would be necessary 70 miles away from the coast in an area that has never flooded?

As a special needs family, they are blessed to have assistance with Brandon's needs through the Angelman Foundation, however the home and belongings are not salvagable.

They are in need of funds right now to clean up and rebuild their family home.  As of now they are needing items for cleanup such as dehumidifiers, Damp Rid, box fans, N95 masks, and storage containers. The kitchen, two bathrooms, floors, and walls will need to be restored and their pool will need restoration as this is Brandon's primary therapy.  This sweet young man's favorite place is in the pool, as he is able to move about without pain and hindrance.  Will you join with me in supporting Tim, Sandi, Brandon and Madelyn Reese of Kingwood, Texas?

Thank you for giving of your time and treasure to help my friends who have helped so many by serving our great country and through healthcare.  Any amount given will go straight the Reese Family to help provide relief as they rebuild their lives.  #ReeseRelief

Sincerely,
Lauren Proctor
