A Gofundme effort — touted above by the former president — has risen to $89,000 at last check for Dr. Jared Burks and his family.
Burks is the physician who became well-known on the Internet for a photo greeting his young son through a window, lest he get in contact with the physician, who’s been responding to coronavirus cases.
Then came Saturday’s tornado, which destroyed his Jonesboro home.
Last night we told you how Dr. Jared Burks has been living apart from his wife Alyssa and their son Zeke in Northeast Arkansas while he treats patients with #COVID19.
Today, the Burks’ home was destroyed by a tornado. They’re all safe.
