NYC STUDENT BRUTALLY ATTACKED

$24,933 of $65,000 goal

Raised by 410 people in 8 months
Created August 16, 2018

This GoFundMe account is for the recovery of a student who is a member of the Upper West Side community in New York City. She was brutally attacked on the street by a man she did not know, just steps away from her apartment building. She endured her attacker's beatings for over 10 agonizing minutes before someone interrupted the attack.

The attacker punched, kicked, bit and strangled her until she passed out (several times), while ripping off her clothing in an attempt to rape her. 

Both her breastbone and face/skull (including both eye sockets) were broken in multiple places. She suffered internal damage to her throat due to him strangling her, as well painful cuts and bruises all over her body from his punching her and stomping on her. 

She is a student with minimal insurance, and is facing a mountain of out-of-pocket, medical expenses. In addition to her current medical bills, she must still undergo a number of procedures, including one required for respiratory purposes and to fix her broken breastbone.

This woman is a kind and loving daughter, sister, aunt and an amazing friend. She is a passionate wildlife conservationist, which is her life's work, as well as an incredibly involved member of the New York City community for 10+ years. 

This woman really needs our help and support. Please donate $10 (or any amount you are able) and pass this GoFundMe along to others. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!

Thank you in advance for your love and support, as well as your help with sharing with others who may also want to assist.

Dear Friends:

Update: Our friend is a bit more mobile now, but she is still waiting for her breastbone to fully set (another 2 months) before she can safely have the medically necessary surgeries to her face/skull and breastbone.

She wanted me to thank you for all of the donations and support she has received. They mean so much to her! She is facing a mountain of out-of-pocket, medical expenses, as she is a student with minimal insurance.

Please do not underestimate how important your donations are (no matter the amount), as well as how equally important your sharing of this fundraiser is. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS towards helping this young woman during her time of great need. Please donate $5, $1, $20 ... whatever you are able.
And please SHARE SHARE SHARE! Thank you so much.
