This fund is being set up to help Crystal Wiley and Katherine Newman pay for their medical bills that were incurred after they received medical attention following a violent attack while they were vacationing in Disney. My best friend, Crystal, and her friend, Katherine, were brutally attacked by a man as they were heading back to their hotel room one evening. This dangerous man carried a knife and victimized multiple other women the very same night; many believe his intentions were that of sexual assault upon these females.  Crystal was wounded by her left eye and required several stitches as a result.  Katherine took the brunt of the attack because she was extremely brave and continued to fight this man as he came at her with a knife.  Katherine suffered blood loss, had several staples put in her head and arm, and required medical attention from the trauma unit.  These two, courageous women have since received medical bills from the hospital that cared for them and I'm asking that everyone pitch in to help eliminate or, at least, lighten their debt.  After everything they endured, paying thousands out of their pockets is a completely unreasonable expectation-they didn't ask for this to happen to them.  In a perfect world, the attacker would be responsible, but it's not that easy.  Please help these two young ladies and they will be forever grateful. :)

You was dealt a pretty raw deal. However, keep your sparkle and searching for the silver lining. You're bravery and attitudes are inspiring to many.

So sorry when I heard about this from my daughter, Bernadette, who works with these girls. Hope they will use the donations for personal reasons and not hospital, which is so unfair. They should not be punished for being victims.
