Support Tyler and Elisha Hessel

Tyler and Elisha were elated to find out they were expecting their first child due in January 2020!  Shortly after hearing the good news, Elisha went in for the standard tests typically done early in pregnancy. Thankfully, everything was looking marvelous for baby Hessel!  Something out of the ordinary, however, was found in one of the test.  Elisha tested positive for amphetamines, which was quite alarming since she had not done any sort of amphetamines. Through process of elimination, Tyler and Elisha's home was tested for meth contamination. To their horror, their home, which they had recently purchased together,  tested positive for unsafe levels of methamphetamines! They moved out immediately for the protection of themselves and their baby, while trying to find answers as to how this was possible. 

After countless visits to the lawyer and conversations with the bank, county, and insurance company, Tyler and Elisha were unable to receive answers as to why their home was sold before it was remediated and never disclosed. They were ultimately left with just one choice: remediate the contamination by stripping the house down to the studs and rebuilding. This process would cost them well over $100,000, with no help from the insurance company. 

Tyler and Elisha need our help to get their home back to a safe condition.  If you feel so led, please consider donating.
