My name is Thomas Robinson, and one week ago, I became the victim of a drug-induced stabbing. I was getting off work when another bystander and I witnessed a car accident. We went over to assist the young lady, to which we saw there were two small children in the car. The children appeared malnourished, and their diapers were full to the max. We attempted to get the kids out of the car and help the driver out, to which she began reacting in such an aggressive way and started slinging a box cutter around. Once I had one of the children in my arms, she proceeded to stab me in the eye, and she sliced the other gentleman's face and hands a few times. We later learned from the police report that she was high on cocaine and intoxicated as well.
Backstory, last year I lived in Atlanta and suffered from a horrible house fire in which I lost EVERYTHING and had to get back on my feet by moving to Augusta. I was a dance coach/instructor before the fire, and due to having to move, I lost my home, dance team and studio. I recently just got my place down here and started a new dance team and was in the process of securing a studio when this incident above occurred, thus causing me a major setback because I lost the vision in my left eye and will require multiple surgeries. Currently, the surgeons stated that they are unsure if or when my vision will restore. I will not be able to support my dance team to my full capabilities, my bills and these surgeries with how much work I'll be missing in the near future and have already missed. I have sought help from multiple lawyers and was advised that this was a civil matter and would not accept the case. So now I am hoping that by creating this gofundme, I will be able to get some financial relief to afford these surgeries and cover bills while I am out of work for them. Anything helps! Thank you for the constant prayers and well wishes. Your support is very much appreciated.
