A New Leg for Linda, A family hero.

Let me start off with saying thank you for taking the time to come and listen to our story. On June 2nd 2016 my  family suffered a devastating event. My Son and my Mother Linda were attacked and mauled by a neighbors pit bull while they walked home from my sons school. Linda protected her grandson by pulling the dog off him after it had already bit him and stood in front of him. The pit bull then grabbed her leg and didn't want to let go. In result of that, her leg was not able to be saved as we all hoped and prayed and it was later amputated. On a good note, my son and mom are alive. Linda is now a hero. What an amazing way to show someone you love them by risking your life to save another. She did what she could to save her grandson. Unfortunately her insurance does not cover prosthetics and the equipment she needs to recovery to start her new life. I come to all of you and ask for whatever it is you can help us with. Even though asking for help is never an easy thing for me, I am trying to do whatever I can to make sure that she will walk again. If you cannot help with a donation that is fine, i ask if you can keep this link going and pass it around to others. That is just as appreciated. She had cried to me the other day saying she cant live the rest of her life in a wheel chair and i promised her i will do whatever it takes to prevent that. Although she is happy and proud for what she did, it is still very hard to cope with the loss. This was always Linda's favorite thing to do, walk everywhere along with dancing to her favorite music at home. To know Linda is to love her. She is a sweet person and deserves the best to heal. I have attached the link from the newspaper on our story. We are all thankful we still have them both. Again thank you for your support along the way♥  http://www.sbsun.com/general-news/20160602/boy-grandmother-hospitalized-by-dog-attack-in-san-bernardino

Sorry this happened to you. Those who own these dangerous dogs should be responsible. But they are not.
