on behalf of Brittany Diggs
 BIRMINGHAM, AL
Many of you have seen the viral video of the 25 yr old woman in Alabama jumping out of the trunk of a moving vehicle to save her life - unfortunately, that was my best friend Brittany Diggs. On Tuesday, March 14th, Brittany was held at gunpoint in front of her apartment after coming home from work. This stranger took everything from her and made her get in the trunk of her own car. He alluded to doing vile things which encouraged her to save herself. With the help of her insulin pump, she was able to find the lever, jump out and save her life! Brittany jumped with nothing to lose but also nothing to come back. She appreciates all of the words of encouragement, love and prayers she has witnessed! She thanks you in advance!!Donations will be used for:*New Housing*Moving funds*Hospital Fees*Lawyer fees*Misc

What a courageous young woman. So proud of you for thinking of your insulin pump, brilliant. I,too, wear one. If you need a family to "adopt" you in the Huntsville area we are here for you. Room and board free must transfer to UAH however. Offer only good for Brittany, no expiration. If you need some place to unwind contact me. We will take care of you until you've got your bearings back. So incredibly sorry and angry for your ordeal. Remember that there are still good people out there. God's blessings and hugs from Grandparents willing to help.

Wow, watching your story gave me chills. You did something that made so many people I know go into their trunk and check to see where this latch was. This is going to help many people and I hope it keeps the conversation going. Very sorry this happened to you. Keep pushing forward! Don't be afraid to seek help if you start to have nightmares or panic attacks. All the best to you.

God Bless you! My daughter is also a Type One Diabetic, which gave me chills when you said you used your insulin pump's light to find the hatch release. I swear all of you guys are so smart, beautiful and nothing will stand in your way in life! May you have success in everything you do!

So sorry this happened to you Brittany. Sometimes God uses us in difficult situations to help someone else. This dramatic event for you is going to be a blessing to someone else, you were strong enough to handle it. I pray God continue to watch over you and I especially pray you emotionally and spiritually get through this. Don't allow the evilness of someone else continue to victimize you, you are a survivor!!!! God Bless!

Girl, when I saw how strong you were as you ran into the store and away from the car...That was amazing! You are one determined and forward thinking person. Thank you for allowing others to see how you handled the situation because you did not just sit there- you acted, you used your wits and self preservation instincts. You are an inspiration. I have 2 daughters and nobody should go through this but you found the right time and acted quickly. I know you will finish your studies and will be safe and successful.

Glad you were able to keep your wits about you in a terrifying situation. Not sure many people could have done the same in such an intense setting. I imagine ANYONE and any Hospital will be lucky to have someone like you caring for them, and in their employ. Hope you can use this as a launching point into your career, and realize after THIS nightmare, everything else is just "stuff".. Best of Luck to you, and Prayers for a wonderful career..

There's a cathartic effect donating money to this young lady. Not only is it going to help her, but it's also a stab at the criminal (parasitic) element that feeds on society.

Dear young sister, when I saw the video of your harrowing experience, as a father of two young girls my heart leapt into my throat like many others who watched it, I am so glad that God helped you by the help of angels of mercy by your side. So glad you are safe, you are a brave, bright young woman, please don't let this experience derail your dreams. You have good friends, the public supports you, there are bad people everywhere but there are many more good people. I pray for your safety and stay strong and hope they catch this heartless accursed animal soon. Peace and blessings on you and all helping you.

You are a brave, strong young woman. You think smart under pressure and will be an awesome nurse!!! I'm a nurse practitioner and you need to keep going for your dream. I would not stay in that apartment and I would have not wanted to see my car again either. I was blessed to see how much support you have financially, but no amount of money is going to help you completely heal from this trauma. I pray that you find a good PTSD counselor and pursue true healing. I trust that God will use this in your future to help someone else. Prayers to you. Keep on keeping on!
