Please help Maddy

Hi guys. 

Yesterday the 4th of February 2020 this happened.

My friends daughter was attacked and left absolutely damaged physically and mentally. 

”Maddy” is 13 year old girl who just started high school a week ago. She is a beautiful straight A student. She has suffered bullying all her life. 

On the afternoon of the 4th February walking Her way home from school, she was attacked by 2 older females who were known to her outside a McDonald’s restaurant.

They cowardly punched her from behind without her even knowing. They proceeded to physically attack her that badly she has lost her two front teeth, suffered major memory loss, concussion, neck, spine and shoulder damage. 
She is currently still in hospital having numerous CT scans, X-rays, and surgery. 

This poor girl has only started high school a week ago and now her life is changed forever. To make matters worse, the culprits and kids nearby videoed itall and it is now being sent around via social media.
They are continuing to torment her via online messages. All whilst she is laying in her hospital bed.

Maddy now needs numerous surgeries, dental replacement, and has suffered not only permanent damage to her face, but the mental scarring of this will change her life.

As a friend I have started this to provide some support for Maddy and her family. Her mother, Courtney, and father, Andrew, are absolutely devastated. They also have 2 other young children. 

The authorities have been contacted. Her school is also being Cooperative in making this aware and punishing those involved.

Maddy is going well and doing much better. On the road to healing. She is home now, resting and recouping and a lot more comfortable. 

Courtney and her family are absolutely gobsmacked at the generosity and kindness of everyone and that complete strangers can do. It really is light in a terrible situation.
