The Story

THE SAVALIS HAVE BEEN DEVASTATED BY HURRICANE HARVEY! 

You may remember that we started this fund raiser to help Savali Savali, husband of TheRoot.Com columnist Kirsten West-Savali when he was diagnosed with lung cancer.  With your help he, Kirsten, and their three very young children moved to Houston immediately so that he can be treated at M.D. Anderson, the world-renowned cancer center.  BUT THIS MOVE HAS PUT THEM SQUARE IN THE PATH OF HURRICANE HARVEY!

This is a note from Kirsten's facebook:
Update: Evacuated. Had to walk through waist deep water. I carried Reid, Walker pushed Dash in an inner tube. Savali carried the dog. Waiting at a neighbor's on the boat to come.

The Savali Family has been been evacuated to a shelter by boat!  They followed ALL instructions from the city, but they have still be devastated by massive flooding. They packed their necessities & valuables and they struggled to get to the boat.  The water was much deeper than they expected and their belongings were ruined by the storm water. So many things were destroyed, including  her computer-- her means  of making a living--- and his medications-- his literal lifeline.

Thankfully, no one was hurt.  They have their lives, their love, and each other.  

Now, they need our help more than ever.  They need a place to live. They must replace the lost medicine.  They need groceries.  They need clothing.  They have three little kids and Savali is undergoing serious medical care.  This is a true emergency.  Any money you give will go to them directly and immediately.  Please open your heart to our dear friends and their babies.

Hello, All!

I am writing with a positive development! Today was a big day for #TeamSavali. This afternoon, they checked in with the doctor to see if Savali's cancer is responding to the chemotherapy. Let me share Kirsten's Facebook post because you can really feel the joy and relief in her words.

***
BREAKING NEWS: The Mr.'s chemo treatment is working exceedingly well! So well, in fact, we're on track to start radiation in two months! Prior to this, the oncologist said radiation was of no use yet because the mass was just too large. Now, with this SIGNIFICANT improvement, we're full steam ahead.
This is a super long road, but today? Today, y'all? This is major and I'm going to rejoice and be glad in it.
****

Thank you, thank you to everyone for your gifts, your prayers, your mojo, your love~
