Hello.

My Name is Mark McCollom. I am a friend of Lindsay Ferraro. Yesterday she was on the receiving end of a brutal attack from her boyfriend. She is currently in the ICU in critical condition. Based on current information she was kicked in the head and was seen bleeding from her head when taken to the hospital. To those who know lindsay as well as I do she is a person who in no way deserves to be treated like this. No person does. Unfortunelly she fell for a unstable person who in return for her love and concern did this unspeakable act to her.

I have setup this fund to help her and her family pay for the medical bills that are racking up as we speak. Any and all help you can give is greatly apprecieated.

Lindsay is without a doubt the most loving and caring person I know.

The story was put on our local news. If you want to see what happened:

News Report

Again I cannot thank you enough for any donations you give.

Please send thaughts and prayers to Lindsay that she is able to pull through this.

I hope to keep this campaign running for at least a week or so.

Thank you.

Hello All.

This will be the final update on Lindsay on the GoFundMe. She continues to fight as she has been for the past 7 months. She has moments of hope and then moments of struggle. It has been quite a roller coaster. She has been transferred to several hospitals and in and out of ICU's. We all continue to pray for her.

I want to thank each and every one of you who donated. We had over 600+ donations in this 7 month period. Your prayers and positive energy made this tough time easier for all involved.

If you want to keep track on Lindsay's status or send her wishes we have a Facebook group.

Search for #GoOrangeforLindsay.

Again thank you all and Come back to us Lindsay.

Hello all. Just wanted to provide you all with an update. Lindsay's mom says:

Hi Everyone: Lindsays mom here again. Thought it would be good to provide a brief update. Lindsay remains in a vegetative state however we now know that she can hear us and has begun to respond with some thumbs activity and trying to laugh from time to time. Brain injuries take a long time but she continues to fight. This will be a long haul for her recovery....she will remain in a brain trauma center working with the best. Lots of love out to all of your for your support.

Wow. That's TERRIBLE. And you're absolutely right, Mark! NO ONE deserves that. I hope and pray that Lindsay makes a full recovery. I also HOPE and PRAY that the POS boyfriend (soon-to-be "X" boyfriend) gets HAMMERED with a decades-long prison sentence, complete with a cell mate named BUBBA who's REPULSED by BULLY wife beaters the likes of Lindsay's ex! Sadly, it probably wasn't the first time it happened.
