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
