The Catherine Salvi Fundraiser

Jillian Pare   WOONSOCKET, RI
Sweet Catherine (she preferred to be called Kathy) Born in Milford mass on 12/10/89 she was a very outgoing, bright young child, very much into her fashion and loved to bake. On the evening of December 13, 2013 she was severely injured in a domestic violence dispute . She was taken to Landmark Medical Center where she was then transported to Rhode Island hospital due to the extent of her injuries. Rhode Island hospital immediately realized that the extent of her injuries were life threatening. Currently Kathy is fighting for her life. So far she has been prepared to have surgery to alleviate the swelling and fluid build up on her brain. She has been and still is sedated and put on a ventilator to help her breathe. Kathy's fate is in god's hands right now.

Please pray for Catherine and her family right now and support them in any way you can.

A little bit about Kathy. She moved to Woonsocket when she was 12 and she started to make a very special group of friends that to this day are here for her. She met Emmanuel Algarin 3 1/2 years ago . then 2 years ago they had a baby boy together. They started their own life together and had their own home, which held their secrets for no one knew what was happening. Then on December 13th, he assaulted her and she is now at Rhode Island hospital in critical condition, fighting for her life to be able to be with her son once more. The man who did this to her sits in ACI prison awaiting sentencing. Her two year old sons name is Davian. Davian is her life. He's a sweet little boy. Right now her family and friends are taking turns shifting between nurturing this little boy and being by her side.

Kathy loved to help people and "no" wasn't usually something she said. It's no wonder that when the doctor's initially shaved Kathy's head her friends were worried that when she would come to, she would first want to see her loving child and second want to fix her hair, so they too made a movement "Team Kathy" and went to a local salon to have their heads shaved as well. Kathy is loved by all.

We, Kathy's friends and family are here today to ask for help raising money. The money raised will support Catherine's medical costs, bills and help support her young child & other items such as cards, candles, balloons can be mailed to or dropped off at. We will try to keep everyone updated as well. Please donate and share and most of all, if you know someone or of someone that is in a difficult situation please take the time to talk to them and help them out!
Thank You

I don't know you or your family, but I did live in RI for a short time. I am so sorry for your loss and am close to finishing a bachelor's degree in women's studies where I hope to work to eradicate domestic violence against women. I wish there was more I could do at this time but will continue holding your family in the light. I read about this on Facebook and was compelled to look into it. I cannot imagine the depth of your grief and hope you find peace and justice.

To Kathy's family including her dear friends. I am so sorry for your loss. To lose a loved one is so hard but to lose one at the hands of someone who supposedly loved and cared for her is so hard. I lost my Mom to domestic violence when I was 17 years old and a junior in high school. I have spent my adult life speaking out against violence in our homes and worked on fundraisers to support programs supporting women and their children. I wish you peace and the strength to get through the tough times ahead. Speak her name often, tell people her story and let NO ONE forget. With sincere Sympathy.

Your daughter has a mighty purpose in this world that satan is trying to destroy. Well he may waylay it for a time but he will not utterly ruin the testimony that is coming through this circumstance. Abuse by males to the ones they are supposed to love and protect needs to be shouted about and dealt with. Kathy may have a beautiful singing voice or artistic talent or be a diligent worker all of which are things needed in our society of entitlement mentality. Just keep your head up and keep speaking life and love and truth to her. Also remember we are entertaining angels and when we pray and bow our knees before the Lord His power is released to work through these messengers and warriors. Don't allow discouragement to set in or cursing-that only enables the minions of darkness. I have been keeping you in my prayers throughout the day and briefly mentioned your situation to my husband who seeks to be a man of God. Make sure you are getting your rest. I pray for strength, and peaceful healing over Kathy, you, and your entire family. I will keep praying!
