Holden’s Path to Recovery

My name is Faith Roussel, and I am raising this money on behalf of my little brother. We are from Kaplan, Louisiana. These donations will be used to provide Holden with day to day needs. As of now, we are paying for home care assistance. Holden does not have the use of his hands; therefore, he needs support 24/7. Holden is the most loving and caring person on Earth. Holden is a 2019 Graduate from Kaplan High school. He is a student at LSUE, where he was majoring in education. Holden is an optimistic and strong young man. Holden is a proud member and advocate of the LGBTQ community. Holden loves competing in speech competitions and expressing who he is! Unfortunately, Holden fell victim to what the family believes is a hate crime on June 20th, 2020, at around 11 pm. Holden was lured to the residence of another young man. This young man proceeded to physically torture and harm Holden for several hours until authorities arrived on the scene. The culprit physically hurt Holden in unspeakable ways. Holden has severe lacerations to both wrists, stab wounds, and lacerations to his neck and was found unconscious. He will need intense physical therapy, emotional therapy, many prayers, and love. Any donations towards Holden’s recovery would be much appreciated; he has a long road of healing ahead of him. No donation is too small, and if you are not financially able to donate, prayers are equally as appreciated. God was with Holden, and we know that God will continue to be with Holden through his recovery. -your big sister and forever friend. Sista loves you so much Holden, and we will get through this ❤️
