I never imagined that I would find myself on the receiving end of CERF+'s charity. In September of 2008 Hurricane Ike changed that by literally turning my world upside down. CERF+ became aware of my plight and sought me out to offer unsolicited help. In the months following the storm, CERF+ played an important role in both my physical and emotional recovery.
