The Story

As of 7/6/2013: The various contributions and comments from people, and the existence of this site has been quite an uplifiting experience for this little family!

My short message:

I think that the best way to tell this short story is to direct your attention to one of the stories from the web:

Words like, "Teens Catch Jumpers," "Heroic Teens save family from fire," "We will catch you, Trust us." and also, "...their chances of survial, slim." (

Please watch the short video from Fox News here:

This is the single mother family of three (one is away with his father), who are struggling to keep heads above water, who find themselves--through no fault of their own--now gasping for a new life.

Bianca already contends with the rollercoaster health problems of her 3 year old, who has suffered from a number of tumors--fortunately removed--and other disabilities. She now has to figure out how to do what should not be impossible: to return to a productive life.

She loves her children, and has some support, but her life is hard.

It is times like these when teenagers, firemen, people, are heroes to someone who needs a hero.

What I can do to help is small, but she now has a chance to rebuild and with your help, and some guidance, get her life back.

This is a fund to help them rebuild their lives now.  The plan is to use the bulk of these funds to get furniture, clothing, and basic necessities. Some of the basics are being donated, but furniture is hard to come by, thus these donations really will help.

I am thankful for those heroes that stepped up--as if it were their normal behavior and be good citizens.

Please contribute to put these lives back in order.

Americans have suffered with tornadoes, hurricanes, droughts, and various disasters, but those, and this disaster need not dampen the spirit of the American hero.

Selfless, good acts toward strangers are considered to be "Heroes," and they are! However, few forget that the heros, themselves are made better by their human kindness.

I'm counting on Arizona, and states beyond to come to the rescue!

Thank you for your consideration,

Ryan M.

PS: All the funds are going to this family, so thank you for your generosity.

Just a brief update to show what has happended to shift the direction for Bianca's family. A friend of the family, Gloria, went before her church and appealed for them to help Bianca pay her rent given that the fire left her unable to manage work and three children and no household.

The members of the church graciously responded by paying her rent and now a member of that church really surprised Bianca by taking her shopping and getting her new furniture for the appartment. 

Bunkbeds for the boys, a dinette, a couch and some other things have given Bianca's family the start of a new home!

Thank you to everyone for your generosity!

I want to send my thanks to those who have helped! Bianca is beginning to get back to normal and seems that she and her family are postitively affected by the experience! Imagine a disaster causing a person to become better!

On behalf of her very grateful family, 

Thank you!

I've added new pictures of a happy family, as yesterday there were some surprises! There have been some beds contributed, some toys, clothes, and an anonymous $1000 contribution from a generous friend! The pictures do show some (finally) happy faces.
