       My name is Arron Keahey, and I was recently lured and ambushed, beaten to almost an inch of my life, after meeting someone on a social app, because I am gay. I had to have facial reconstructive surgery, had brain trauma as well as memory loss, which is still affecting me pretty bad and am having problems with anxiety and depression. I am having to start my life over now. i am having a hard time doing so and am needing help with all the medical bills, and also need some help with normal necessity bills and everyday expenses while I rebuild my life . Any donation to me will be truly appreciated, and I cannot thank you enough for your support.  Here are a few news articles about the incident:

Even if you do not have the resources to donate, please share this article and spread the word of what happened. I truly believe that the more problems like this in this country are talked about, the less it will happen and the closer we will be to a solution.


Thank you very much for taking your time to look at this and thankyou in advance for any help you could possibly give. have a blessed day.

so sorry this has happened to you..... please try not to fear people from now on........there are good people out there who would never hurt you or anyone..........please .....with all my heart and soul.....please believe that!.........i mean it sincerely!..........the young man who did this to you is a broken soul........who might be gay, straight or bisexual himself.....who knows for sure???? but it is a fact that many times men who commit homophobic crimes are sometimes gay, closeted, self hating people who hate the fact that they might even have a gay feeling now and again........so they hurt other gay people......not always.....but definitely sometimes........so please.......if you can.....forgive this broken man........as is said.......he didn't know in his heart what he was really doing............it was his fear and hatred that turned him into so hateful a being......to do this to someone.......and he could have done this to just about anyone it seems.....with all the confusion and hate in his life and heart......fear and anger and hatred blackens our hearts to the degree that we would go out and hurt and kick and punch or even kill someone because of that ugliness inside our hearts........my sincere best to you always.......you might end up helping others in the future because you'll truly understand their pain and hurt.......the pain and hurt you had to go through because of this man........but maybe some love and goodness will come from this ugly event......and you may go on to help others who have gone through this hate.......but probably you will let your compassion show to all human beings regardless of who they are......and that will be the powerful light at the center of this darkness.......the beautiful rainbow..........the silver lining of a dark cloud of hate........but your light will pierce that hate and darkness forever......god bless you forever...........best recovery to you.........please shine your light wherever and however you can.......and god bless you over and over.........thank you

It's a shame that people would do such a horrible thing. I will be praying for you everyday. For a fast recovery and a beautiful turn around. You did not deserve that. Being gay is not a crime, or something to be punished, or for people to use to criticize you for. I hope it all turns around for you and people see this story and realize that even if you have a problem with gay people it's not your business or your life. They are simply people like everybody else. I know you have an amazing family and if there is anything that I can ever do to help please feel free to ask. Don't ever be ashamed of who you are! Don't let dirtbags change how you feel. I pray for the very best for you and hope I get to hear your happy ending soon!!!
