Surgery fund

$1,027 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 18 people in 12 months
I want to start this fund for a very important person to me. Her name is Vanessa Bennett. She is the survivor of a brutal attack on her, her mother,father and sister. When she was just three years old. You can read more about this if you google her name. It left her with scars all over her face and body including emotional scars. She has talked to me many times about how she wants to look normal and have her face evened out because of the beating she took to the face with a hammer. That is why i am starting this fund. Vanessa is the most compassionate, caring, and kind hearted person I know. I think Vanessa is a very beautiful person inside and out. She deserves to get help with surgery for all that she went though and to feel like people are not staring at her and that she owes them a explanation. If she could see herself the way I see her,  she would see beautiful, amazing woman, caring and strong person that i look up too. She deserves to be happy. Right now she only receives disability. This  barely pays her bills. She doesnt make enough to even eat.
She has many other issues that she needs to take care of like paying back her 20,000 dollars in student loans so she can get her degree in drug counceling and is struggling with finding a place to live because of her credit. She wishes to buy a house and get a vehicle. She came out to tucson to spend time with her family but most of all her son. She needs a vehicle to get back and forth to to classes everydah and pick up her medication on a cregular basis. One of her biggest regrets is that she doesnt have the mental capacity to talk on a conversation with anyone because of her adhd,or  Social security took 400 dollaRs out of her ssi for 3 months because they were the only business  that didnt receive the paperwork and now vanessa has 0 income and she asked her family and some of them like her Cousin just called her a junky. She doesnt deserve this. Now we have to move back to the streets. We have no food, no phone, she cant get her medication or pay for her cat thaT she misses so much. Please help. She cant afford clothes,..her family wont answer her phone calls. What they dont know is my fiance has cancer and cant work because he is in so much pain and cant work. What i really want isa place to call home and to fix the surgery that got messed up 15 years ago.

Because they dont like ber boyfriend

I wanted to share an update with everyone. I was finally able to get off the streets into an apartment with all of your support. Also, I am buying my first vehicle after 5 years. I am still working on saving for my surgery but, also felt it is more important to have stable living and taking baby steps to my biggest goal.
