on behalf of Frances Bradley-Villier
My name is Cherisse Bradley last week our our entire family left Flint, Michigan headed to St. Maarten for my youngest sister Frances Bradley's wedding. A couple days later we were made aware of the hurricane. All of us were able to get out except my my 8 year old niece Malaika, my middle sister Alexandria Bradley along with the newlywed couple.

It was gut wrenching watching my father as he left behind his eight year old granddaughters, and two of his daughters behind.  "It was one of the hardest things I had to do" said my father Bruce Bradley.  "I am still emotion hour to hour waiting to hear from them". 

This is video was takes from FB live.  They lose signal here because due to very minimal service but it reflects the desperate measures they are facing. 

Hurricane Irma has left the island devastated and no way of getting out as all the airports are completely destroyed. No running water, No electricity and minimal standing houses.

Although Irma has passed Hurricane Jose will be hitting this Saturday to an island that has already been made vulnerable.
My family and other victims of this natural disaster are in need of resources to get off the island and resources to sustain them until they are rescued.

We are asking for donations to help make this possible. No donation is too small. All help will be sincerely appreciated.

If all else fails and you cannot contribute financially , please continue to pray.

UPDATE! My sister Frances and her husband have safely arrived here in the United States and living in Flint Michigan.
My sister Ali and niece Malaika are now safely returned to their home in New York.

We are thankful for the evacuation of the U.S. Government but we have recently learned this evacuation was not free!
The Government will be exposing their good ole American way and will be charging for evacuation, travel, and hotel fees! (NOT COOL IN MY OPINION!)
There have been some recent developments concerning my sisters husband Dominique Vilier.
Dominique who is a French citizen by law can only reside in the country for three months without citizenship by way of a green card or work visa.

He is here with no work and not knowing when they will be able to return to his job on the island due to the hurricane catastrophe.

Employment in the US is only possible for non-citizens with a working Visa. In this case we will need expedited documents due to the dire circumstances and time sensitivity.
This means lawyers and processing fees
As we continue to research and learn new developments each day Reality is setting in concerning finances and costs to make a full recovery from this storm.

As of now the following funds will be distributed for:

Evacuation, travel, and hotel fees to pay back the government.

Lawyer fees for expedited work visa and citizenship

Food and clothing

Gas for transportation

Toiletries

Thanks you for all your generous donations you are so appreciated.

Please continue to share and give what you can do...no donation is too small and all information for possible networking is strongly accepted.

God Bless,

Bradley and Tilier family
Pay back time!

UPDATE!!! My sisters and niece have been transported to PR and while awaiting a flight into the US this Thursday.

My sisters husband who was left behind in ST. Maarten was able to evacuate and reunite with his wife yesterday!! We are overjoyed about this news.

Frances and her new husband will be returning to Michigan but they are starting over completely from scratch. All money donated will be to help them with the resources needed to rebuild their lives.

They would still love to return to St. Maarten but have no idea when that will be possible due to the devastation on the island.

Thank you so much for your prayers and support!! Let's keep sharing!
