Batcho’s recovery fund

Dear friends,

On August 3, 2018 my husband and I were brutally shot by a felon with a shotgun on the drivers side of our car while driving home from getting ice cream. We both have bullets and fragments of bullets in our bodies. My loving husband was air lifted from our home street and taken to a hospital where they put his nose back together and had to surgically remove bullets from his eye sockets. He is still in very bad condition at the hospital. They are still performing cat scans to look for bullets that could be dangerous since he took all of the shot to the face. Many friends, family, and strangers have been asking what they can do to help. The thing we need most now is your kindness and money to help pay medical bills. To all the doctors, nurses, family, and friends Eric and I want to say, “we are so grateful for you and that you helped save our precious lives. Thank you. We send you all infinite love and kindness.” In addition, I want to thank all the police officers who are diligently and relentlessly looking for the felon who shot Eric and I. Please pray for their safety as they look for the man who tried to end our lives. Moreover, please pray that the officers find this man and put him away so he can never hurt another human being.
