I want to thank the entire Lymphedema community for their prayers, texts, and the incredible support you have demonstrated towards all in Texas impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Unfortunately, the storm has impacted someone very dear to me. My mother’s baby sister, Lydia, and her family sustained significant roof damage to their home. They evacuated to Round Rock and came home this evening to discover their home did not withstand the storm very well.
Mr. & Mrs. Johnny Flores recently celebrated 38 years of marriage. They are now displaced from their home until the roof can be repaired. Both also care for two of their grandchildren after their eldest daughter’s passing, and they are about to start school.
My Aunt Lydia has been a personal confidante and shoulder to cry on since my own mother’s passing in 2006. When I have had surgery in Houston, she’s traveled from my hometown to visit and make sure I’m okay. This was a 4 hour round trip for her. In the 11 years since my mother’s passing, she has always been there for us.
When my father had cancer last year, she delivered hot meals to us almost every single day or kept me company while cooking there.
There just isn’t a more selfless person who is in need right now that I personally know. These are the roof damage photos.
