“Lost Everything” – Family Displaced by Fire Appeals for Help

The College Park family displaced by last weekend’s tragic fire needs our help. The family has set up a GoFundMe page where we can contribute.

The page reads..

There was a fire at my Mom and Aunts house Saturday, January 7, the news was carried by nbcwashington.com, wusa9.com, wtop.com, dcnewsnow.com and others. The house was completely destroyed. We lost three of our cats to the fire and others are missing. My mother was pulled from the fire by the Fire Department and is currently in the ICU at Med Star DC. My Aunt is unharmed and here with us.
My mom is elderly and was taken to the hospital in a life-threatening state, but she has received excellent medical care and is now doing well. She is currently in the ICU at Med Star D.C. is awake and alert. She has burns on over 18% of her body. She will be needing surgery and will be a guest at Med Star for a couple of weeks as she recovers.
I want to thank the responding units who answered the call that day. I also wanted to thank Berwyn Heights (14) for getting my mother out of the house and the EMS unit that transported her. (Not sure who)
I am not sure who was there but these were the units I saw personally (in no particular order)
 Berwyn Heights
 College Park
 Branchville
 Bowie
 Glenarden
 Hyattsville, and
 Silver Spring.
I apologize if I missed anyone, but still very grateful.
We are all overwhelmed by the situation. We are alive and well. We are trying to figure out our next step, and we have been in touch with the Red Cross. We also started the Go-Fund me page to help with this situation. The house was paid for, but the insurance had lapsed, so no funds. The funds will be used for home restoration and part of the donations for medical bills as there will be more surgeries.
We would be very grateful if you can spare ten to twenty dollars or more to help, every dollar will help.
I am very grateful that everyone is okay. It could have been far worse. Thank you, everyone. We are truly blessed. I will keep you posted as more information becomes available.
