Resist the storm

New Orleans was hit by a devastating storm, “Hurricane Katrina.” Helena moved to Richmond, Virginia, with her husband, daughter, and family dog, which they lost to liver disease. Helena’s husband is a Rehab Nurse Coordinator, and her daughter is working on her undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering.
