Kari Mellenkamp lost her house and her daughter in a devastating fire in the early hours on October 2, 2013 in Virginia Beach, VA.
Kari Mellenkamp and her 2 children woke up in the early hours on October 2, 2013 in Virginia Beach, VA to a devastating fire. She and her son escaped but unfortunately her daughter, Jade Alexis, was trapped in here second floor bedroom and had to be rescued by firefighters . Firefighters pulled her from the burning home unconscious. She was airlifted to Norfolk General Hospital where she died that afternoon.
We are trying to raise money to cover the medical and funeral expenses and hopefully something will be left over so they can start to rebuild their lives. We know we can not bring Jade Alexis back with any amount of money but we can take some of the burden off of her mother and brother as they try to heal from her loss. Thank you all for your generous donations.
