Leidy's Recuperation Fund

My girlfriend, Leidy, was struck by a car while walking to work on January 13, 2018. In addition, a passerby stole her purse while she was unconscious and then attempted to blackmail me for her belongings. She spent a week in ICU and the wounds are healing nicely. Unfortunately, due to brain swelling, she suffered major memory loss. The doctors say it could take up to 6 months for her memory to return. Leidy is a fashion designer but is unable to work her “9-5” job or manage her personally owned brand since she has no memory of her professional duties. Leidy refuses to accept financial support from me. She is very strong willed and kind of stubborn.  I’m hoping to raise money for Leidy and her 10-year-old daughter, Maria José, to help ease the financial burden during her recovery time. A $5-10 donation doesn’t do much in the States but the money goes a long way in Colombia. The $5,000 goal with cover all of her expenses for the next 6 months including rent, utilities and groceries. I give many thanks in advance for everyone who can help my sweetie during this difficult time. It is truly a situation straight out of a movie. Leidy is very private and worries that this fundraiser could negatively impact future business deals. That is the reason I removed the post from social media a few days ago. I’m personally reaching out to my friends for help.
