Now, there has been a GoFundMe account set up for Carol Kraus Watson and her three kids still living at home. The account was set up be her daughter who has since left home and is independently living on her own. Watson and her dependent kids are currently all sharing a hotel room with their two dogs while the situation gets handled with insurance. If you've ever experienced anything like this, then you're well aware of the hardships the family is currently facing.

This all comes just a few years after Watson lost her husband back in 2020. Life comes with its fair share of hits for everyone, but with your help, maybe it will lessen the sting as this family tries to adjust to their new normal.

Obviously, we wish the family the absolute best of luck. If you'd like help out the Kraus-Watson family, click HERE.
