Baby Dionne - Viciously Attacked by Dog

Our baby girl Dionne had just arrived to her great-grandparents residence to celebrate the holidays with family.  After she got out of the car, a stray dog viciously attacked her, bit her face, and caused a significant injury. Our beautiful little girl was rushed to the hospital for immediate treatment and the healing has only begun.  She is strong, stable and happy but will require multiple surgeries to repair her beautiful face.   

On behalf of this heartbreaking struggle, we established a financial goal to represent a jump start for Dionne’s unforeseen future. Without knowing an exact dollar amount for such tragedy, we have selected a numerical figure represented by the average cost of dog bite claims; however this does not take into consideration that such events often times take years to correct, from a medical standpoint.

With these efforts to support Dionne, we express our love, appreciation, and gratitude! Thank you!
