Though it’s been three years since the deadly Camp Fire, wildfire survivor and Magalia, CA resident Sharon Cannon recalls its aftermath: “It was very hard. There was no stores, no resources, no water. I got sick, broke my foot. A lot of bad stuff happened.” She admitted that, at some point, “I really didn’t think I was going to make it. I really didn’t.”
But then, after getting in touch with and working with Tzu Chi Chico case managers, Sharon discovered she would be gifted hope in the form of a brand new RV.
Sitting inside her new mobile home – and glowing – she said, “I can’t believe it’s real. Now I have hope again. I know I’m gonna make it. I know I’ll make it home… it just changed everything for me. It really did.”
