Brendan's Recovery Fund

My brother was out celebrating his first birthday after graduating from college when he was beaten and robbed by a group of 9 people. After being repeatedly kicked and punched in the face he lost consciousness. The concussion he received after the mugging has impacted his everyday life and he is currently unable to work, concentrate, or even drive a car because of the injuries he received.

My brother now has to deal with symptoms of brain trauma that include migraines, memory loss, inability to drive, operate machinery and unrelenting anxiety. Some symptoms may be permanent and as treatment schedule begins the fear of what is yet to be discovered resonates. The last thing he needs to worry about is the financial burden that is starting to pile up. All donations will go directly to Brendan to help cover any medical costs that come from his injuries, as well mitigate any unforeseen costs related to the brain damage he received and help support him in the upcoming months.

This is the video of the attack and information about the mugging epidemic that is currently going on in Minneapolis.
