I created this page to help my best friendsTracy Wilhelmy and Brian Moister. Tracy and Brian's house was recently FLOODED by hurricane Irma and is now UNLIVEABLE.
(before & after pictures attached).
Tracy & Brian are both extremely hard working individuals who both work MULTIPLE JOBS to make ENDS MEET.
They recently bought their 1st house and made it into their own little PARADISE.
THEIR LIFE HAS BEEN TURNED UPSIDE DOWN!
Tracy has an unmatched love for animals and has established her own pet-sitting business out of her home.
With their house being destroyed Tracy & Brian are not only without somewhere to live; They will lose income from the business and they are hurting to get back on their feet.
Last week Tracy & Brian had to EVACUATE their home because of hurricane Irma..
Boarded up their house, PRAYED for the best as they drove away with her mom and stepdad (who recently had a stroke) and headed out of FL.
4 weeks ago Brian got a phone call that his dad
was in the ICU. Brian's dad is not doing well... Still in the hospital.
After the hurricane, my fiance and I drove to their house in HOPE to give them some good news..
"The roof is still up but everything is flooded"
My heart hurts for Tracy, Brian and their family.
I am asking anyone that can help, PLEASE HELP!
Any money that is raised for them will be used towards insurance deductibles, restorations and replacing anything insurance will not cover.
They have a $5,000 flood deductible- that does NOT cover anything in the home that was destroyed.
Today, as the flooding finally went down, they were able to get into part of the house safely.
Tracy contacted FEMA and she is not eligable because she has insurance ($5,000+ out of pocket)
Everything was saturated. The conditions are heart breaking.
Her insurance company told her it would be WEEKS before they can have anyone come to ASSESS the DAMAGES.
You can see the flood lines on the walls and MOLD is already SPREADING.
Once again, packing up anything that was salvageable and closing the doors to go find somewhere safe to stay.
I am reaching out for positive comments, a helping hand and donations.
THANK YOU for all your support.
