Tornado victim lost a lot

$2,321 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 35 months


On June 22, 2016, the home that I rented was struck by a tornado noth of Seneca, IL.

I am a self-employed local contractor who operates PLS Remodeling, and my living is dependent  on my vehicle.  I was encouraged by my friends to create this page.   I am grateful for those who helped me salvage what they could from my house and the shop that I was renting.   We are currently trying to figure out what I can still use. 

Unfortunately, I lost my vehicle, many tools, many clothes, some furniture, my computer and printer, and a lot of  what I possessed on that horrible night.

As a self-employed contractor, I do not have health insurance, and I suffer from Type 1 Diabetes. My insulin costs are $160.00 per month with an additional $40.00 needed for testing supplies.

I am currently living with friends, as I do not have close family in this area.

I am a hard worker whose goal now is to get another vehicle, replace my tools, and get back on the road to working so that I can have the income to find a new home, and get my life back on track.

The van that I had was older and only covered by liability insurance, and to replace it will cost approximately $10,000.

I am unsure as to the cost to replace my stationary tools as I have not assessed their damage. My best guest is $10,000 +.

I have been in business for many years, and in 3 minutes lost almost everything that I owned.

I appreciate in advance your sharing my story-

Hi- Wanting to post an update today. I have received several donations of clothes. I need to find the time to try things on and see what fits, and I hope to be able to do that in the next few days.
I received a wood lathe from some nice folks in Streator, and greatly appreciate that.
I have a lead on an apartment in Marseilles, and I am hoping that will pan out in the next few weeks.
I have received a donation of a used work van to get me started, hope that it will get me through this rebuilding period, so I am greatly appreciative of that.
Hopefully things will continue to improve for me, and I just want to thank everyone for the support.
I will keep you updated.
