Brutally Stabbed Mother Needs Help

At 4:45am on November 17, 2014, Deena Rae experienced a home invasion and brutal attack from the perpetrator.

Had she not fought her assailant, she'd be dead and her children motherless. The attempted murderer stabbed her four times--in the pelvis, in her torso narrowly missing her heart, in her face, and lacerated her liver before running away into the darkness. 

When the police came out, the attempted murderer was long gone, and cops say they won't find the perp, because he has a fairly nondescript profile. I find it appalling no efforts are being made to get this dangerous man off the streets before he successfully claims the life of another unsuspecting victim. Thankfully, he failed with Deena. 

Had Deena been sleeping that night rather than working the long hours single mothers often do when trying to support a household of four, she certainly would not be with us today. In February, her elderly mother experienced a horrific leg break resulting in surgery, and now Deena, who is trying to still heal from her liver injury, is still trying to work and take care of her mother, too. Her work hours have been cut severely, but the one thing that never gets cut are the steady stream of bills. 

Bill collectors have been calling, and the medical bills for the household are piling up. Deena is a generous, loving woman who would do anything for anyone, and it hurts my heart to have to type this request for help. Not because it's wrong to help someone, but because someone who radiates such love and kindness is rare, and the world would be a worse place for the loss of someone so beautiful in heart and spirit as Deena Rae.

Any donations are appreciated to ease the financial burden on her and her family so she can focus on healing and helping her youngest daughter recover from the trauma of seeing her mother covered in blood, thinking she was already dead, before the ambulance arrived.

Thank you in advance for anything you can contribute to help this family during such a dark and difficult time in their lives.
