On Thursday, April 6, 2017 my 23 year old son Brandon Lee VanCleaf came over to my home to help me. I am disabled veteran and he helps me out with chores and things. His truck got stuck in front of my home and he walked to a neighbors home for assistance. As he passed a neighbor's home a pitbull ran out of an open door of the home to attack him, it was quickly followed by 4 other pitbulls. After about 15 minutes of a brutal attack, Brandon's friend Charity heard the screaming and ran up the street to help Brandon fend off the attack. Charity beat the dogs off of Brandon with a stick and for an hour the two of them staved off the brutal attack. After an hour of fighting, Charity was able to break away and run back to my home where I followed her to the attack site and shot two of the pitbulls. The other three pit bulls were captured by the owner and contained. Charity and another neighbor phoned an ambulance and Bradon was taken to the Yell County Sheriffs Department and life flighted to the University of Arkansas Medical Science Center. He was there for a few days and then transferred to a smaller hospital due to our lack of insurance. We have been released early from the hospital because of our financial situation and desperately need help for bandages and other things to help keep Brandon's wounds clean. Any help that you can give us would be greatly appreciated. We never thought that we would end up in a situation like this. Its unimaginable!
