Background on Blair Family

On Monday, August 25, 2008 Ashley(20), Adam (18) and Alex (12) lost their mother, Becky to a massive heart attack. She left behind her three children and her grandson, Cameron, Ashley's son. These kids are no strangers to grief as they have have already lost their father and grandmother in the same house.

They have no family in town. Their aunt from Tennessee was able to come down and Adam is going to go back and live with her in Tennessee. The state has given Ashley custody of Alex. They are currently living in their mother's house that is in foreclosure and the electricity is on a shut off list for the 11th of September. The living conditions of the house are in extreme need and if they are able to keep the house, tons of help will be needed to fix it up. Ashley doesn't drive and will need support getting Cameron and Alex taken care of.

Thank you to all the people who have already donated items and money. It is more appreciated than you will ever know. Our goal for this blog is to keep you updated on what is going on with the Blair family and how you can help. We don't want to just put a band-aid on it, we really need to rally community around them to help them get through this difficult time.
