Dru's Healing Fund

$25,621 of $25k goal

Raised by 540 people in 37 months
Dru was attacked on the street by a stranger with a hammer at 10:00 AM the morning of 07/11 in Bedford Stuyvesan, Brooklyn. It's a miracle that Dru is alive, and even more so that there's no brain damage at all. But there's bad news as well. Although his right eye is in perfect shape, Dru is going to loose his left eye. The damage was too severe to repair it.


Dru will need multiple operations to repair the damage and to prep the eye socket for a prosthesis.


Please help cover Dru's recovery and living costs while he heals from this terrible crime.

Hey there- one of my friends recommended contacting The Victim Services Board in Brooklyn. It takes care of bills when there is an innocent victim. Her roommate was mugged last year and all her medical expenses were covered. I can get more info if needed!
