Help support hate crime victim through 3 surgeries

Friday night, January 8th. I was assaulted and almost died. 2-3 caucasian males in white shirts left me for dead and someone found me a few hours later on a sidewalk in downtown Folsom. I'm 99% sure it was a hate attack in these dark times. They didn't even take my wallet, any credit cards, phone, or car. Just me. 

I have been in the trauma neuro ICU since Friday night, and had surgery on my face Sunday morning. My cheekbones are broken, they have plates behind them now. My hard palate and upper teeth were separated from the rest of my skull. Most of my lower teeth are broken or missing. My lower lip was hanging off my chin. I looked like a Halloween mask. The doctors said it's a miracle I didn't have any brain injury. 

It's now Monday afternoon. I was just informed by my doctor that I'm going to need another surgery in the next couple of days. My nose was too broken to put plates into, so my jaw isn't aligning well at all. He's going to wire my jaw shut for 4 weeks. After a month, I'll need another surgery to get the wires removed. I understand there's not a whole lot anyone can do to catch the people that did this to me, but any donation you can provide to get me through these 3 surgeries would be amazing. I truly appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers in this time.
