Let's Help the Riel Family Rebuild!

This is the Riel family: Kendra (mom and neonatal specialist flight nurse for OU Medical Center), Hannah (11), Macy (8), and Libby (6). On May 20, 2013, their lives changed forever when an EF-5 tornado ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, completely leveling the Riel's home and demolishing their school. Hannah, Macy, and Libby were buried in the rubble of Plaza Towers Elementary School before being rescued. Miraculously, they escaped with only minor injuries.

My name is Annalee Seath, and my dad (Brian Janke), and Kendra's mom (Gayla Janke) are collaborating to help raise money for a new house for Kendra and the girls.

While we can never restore the past, we can come together to rebuild the Riel family's future. We appreciate each and every donation, no matter how small! Thank you.

This is what remains of the Riel's house. The tub in the center of the photo is from their trip to salvage things.

The end of a school year. A family friend who is also a paramedic flight nurse was the first to reach the school and found the girls buried in the rubble of Plaza Towers Elementary School. This photo captures their two mile walk back to his truck. On the way they passed by their home which was totally gone. The fright on their faces tells it all.
