Love Is The Binder

Calling all humanitarians:I need help from the purist of hearts. Late Sunday evening (10/01/17) my good friend & coworker Ciera was making a routine stop to pick up her two daughters from her mother’s home. As she retrieved her children making way to her vehicle she was attacked from behind and was stabbed 9 times by her younger brother. Her eldest daughter ran out of the car & her brother immediately ran away. She sustained severe wounds to her neck, throat, left arm & left hand. After being rushed by ambulance to the hospital Ciera immediately underwent an 8 hour surgery on her neck; and on Tuesday she had surgery on her left upper extremity. Currently it is inconclusive as to the reasoning behind this malicious occurrence. What is known is that her brother has a past history of mental illness, drug abuse & violence. On Oct. 2nd at 10am he went to court for an unrelated incident where he was apprehended for attempted murder. He gave police officials a statement denying having any recollection of his actions or involvement of the attack. Currently the amount of recovery time for my friend is undetermined. She is to be hospitalized for several more weeks then placed in a transitional care unit for further care. Her daughters are with family and can’t understand this situation. They do know that their mother isn’t at 100% and will be away from her for some time. This transition came all at a moments notice and is extremely uncomfortable for Ciera & her kids.
