For My Sister.
A night six months ago I received a call my sister was flown to Alantic City trauma and was placed on a ventilator. I sank not knowing what to do or how to fix this. She was severely beaten by her boyfriend of almost 20 yrs. Drs could not tell me if she would be OK or not. The prognosis was not good, they couldn't tell us if she would even survive the beating she received. It took her several days to wake up as I stayed by her side. She is a survivor thank God but will suffer for many years for fears she now has. She suffered several broken facial fractures and a brain injury. She now is worried for her safety and had to reapply for a restraining order due to she was still in the hospital and missed court the first time then they notified her of a new court date but with her brain injury and just coming home she does not remember anyone coming to her home to notify her so she missed that date, mind you at this time her brain injury was still much evident as she was telling me to grab the dog treats off the wall to take home which was actually the purell dispenser. We contacted a Lawyer due to the fear we have of Cumberland county being to easy on these abusers. I want a certain she will receive this protection order, and her and my mother can feel some sense of peace. She lives in fear daily he will be released from prison. I am asking for any kind of help getting the money up so a lawyer can go to this hearing and be a strong advocate for her. We can not let this man get away with what he did to her. No women should ever have to go through this. I hope you can find it in you to help us. I wish I could just snap my fingers and make this all disappear for her but I can't but what I can do is make sure we do all we can to help her in this healing process and to feel safe. Thank you all.+ Read More
