Friends, 

 

On August 27, 2012, the lives of so many were changed in our community. What should have been a happy first day of school turned into a tragedy at Perry Hall High School, especially for 17-year-old victim, Daniel Borowy. 

 

Daniel is my dear friend Chrissy's godson and cousin. He loves spending time with his family, especially playing with her young children, Khaya and Cecilia. Just last December, he was jumping around in the ball pit at Khaya's 5th birthday, laughing with the kids, and now he is fighting the biggest fight of his life. 

 

Chrissy says he has always dreamed about meeting Lady Gaga, Johnny Depp, and even President Obama. In fact, he packs his suitcase every morning and tells his mom he is traveling to California to see Lady Gaga perform. Daniel has a heart of gold and big dreams. 

 

Daniel and his family have endured so much in his life. Yesterday, he was an innocent bystander, he was not a bully, he was not a target, he was a young man who wanted to eat lunch on the first day of school with his friends. 

 

Daniel is now out of surgery and is in recovery, but his full recovery is far from over. His mother and family continue to surround him; it is a trying time for all of them and your prayers have gone a long way. 

 

In an effort to help with Daniel's recovery, a few of Chrissy's friends are setting up this fundraising site. All the proceeds generated will go directly to Daniel Borowy's mother so she can help with the medical expenses and bills that will certainly come their way. 

 

Thank you so much in advance for your outpouring of love for Daniel and his family. Continue the fight so Daniel can play with Khaya again on his 6th birthday.  

 

All the best,

The Friends of Chrissy Kehl Ndeble

NHHS Class of 1996

Thank you all so much for your donations kind words and prayers! This will be such a huge help to Daniels mother in the months ahead. She is a single parent who has dealt with many set backs in recent years. Right now she is living in a state of shock watching her best helper and smile maker suffer. It is all so surreal For now there is just one concern in her mind which is Daniel getting well. The doctors expect a full recovery so all the prayers are working. Two surgeries down and possibly one more to go! Thank you all!

As a fellow Gator from the class of 92, born, raised and still a resident of Perry Hall, children that attend both Perry Hall High and Perry Hall Middle Schools and most importantly a Mother, my heart goes out to your family and that beautiful young man, Daniel! I have a brother named Daniel and I think of him whenever I hear that Elton John song. Daniel is like a brother to us as a community. For what he has endured it has effected us all. I'd like to think that what happens to one of us takes a toll on all of us. We send many prayers to Daniel for his recovery. From what I have read of him, it is his shining personality that will keep him strong and I know he will make a full recovery. With God, all things are possible. I long to see the future pictures of that handsome smile of his. Please let him know that he has a huge support group out here now and that we want him to keep reaching for the stars. God Bless your family and most of all God Bless Daniel. xoxo Shelly (Godwin) Streett, Justin Streett and Lee Russell

Thank you everyone for your prayers, well wishes, and donations. Chrissy is truly touched by all of your generosity. She said that Daniel is conscious and they are hopeful the breathing tubes will be removed today! He has more surgeries in his future, but is on his path to recovery thanks to the support of the community, love of his family and protection by God.
