Our 72 year old grandmother, Elia Gutierrez, was viciously attacked by 5 pit bull and mastiff mixes, on 7/9/14. She was collecting cans and plastic bottles to recycle when she was attacked. Although we are extremely thankful that she survived the attack, we know that she has a long road ahead of her to fully recover. We are asking for donations to help with medical bills that are not covered by insurance and to also supplement her income during her recovery. We are also wanting to get her an air conditioning unit on her home, she currently has a swamp cooler. We appreciate every single donation and we are very thankful for your support.

Here's the link to the news footage taped the morning of the attack.

Hey everyone, thank you all for your support. We still trying to come up with more donations. We have raised $1025.00 so far. This is good but we are needing to raise more donations as the amount we've raised so far will only cover the ambulance bill if Nanas insurance doesn't cover it. We are still unsure at this point of all of nana's medical bills will be covered. If your not able to donate, we understand but please share this link on your page and please ask others to do the same. Again thanks for all your support and prayers for nana. God Bless!!

Hi everyone!! Nana is doing much better!! She still has quite a bit of pain and has a long way to go to be completely better. After the dog attack her head had to be shaved due to all the plastic surgery that had to be done to put her scalp back together. Today we took her to get her wig from the Arizona Wig Boutique in Scottsdale. The wonderful ladies there donated a custom wig, shampoo, conditioner, a wig comb and custom head caps. Here's nana with her new hair!! She is a new woman now and you can see it in her demeanor!! It's so cute to see her so happy!! She's been smiling from ear to ear since we left the Arizona Wig Boutique!! Thank you everyone for all of your support and prayers!!
