Storage Fire Help!

Hey Everyone,

For those of you who know me, you know that the past few months have been really tough. For those who don’t, here’s the breakdown: last year, my mom was diagnosed with a rare blood-disorder, Polycythemia Vera. Because of this and her existing Lupus diagnosis, she made the decision to move to Arizona. This year we’ve discovered that she has metastases in her lungs and ovaries. Coupled with me losing my job, and the overwhelming stress, we had managed to hold it together. In preparation of her move, my mom put the vast majority of our things in storage. Upon calling today, it turns out that the storage place caught fire in August, never contacted her, and now she has next to nothing to start her life over in Arizona. All of our photos of my sister are gone, priceless family heirlooms, and genuine necessities (the majority of her clothing). If anyone has anything they can spare to help her, we’d be more than appreciative. We’ve tried really hard to remain optimistic throughout everything. 

Forever grateful for your help,
