Helen Jones Quality of Life Restoration Fund

**************UPDATE 10/17/2020**************
We would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU for the overwhelming love, prayers, support and selfless generosity extended to our family as we deal with this traumatic situation. 

On the early morning of Tuesday October 6, 2020, our 61-year old mother, Helen Jones, was attacked by an unknown masked man who assaulted her by throwing an array of chemicals in her face.  Helen, an essential worker, was on her way to work from her Germantown area home in Philadelphia. This chemical attack has left her blind in both eyes and her face burned. Our family was not prepared for such devastation. Friends, family, neighbors, and strangers have asked how they can help after seeing Helen's story on the news - https://6abc.com/chemical-attack-woman-injured-in-face/6814017/ and https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2020/10/14/germantown-woman-who-had-chemical-thrown-in-face-in-unprovoked-attack-is-now-blind-family-says/ .

In addition to lost wages, Helen now has a number of medical bills, trauma therapy needs, appointments, daily prescriptions, and disability service needs that are adding up quickly. We are establishing this fund to help us navigate the endless bills and devastation this unknown masked man has caused Helen and our family. Helen's road to recovery is just beginning and we appreciate all of you who want to help us help her.

If you would like to donate to the family directly to avoid fees, feel free to contact us for other options. 

Our sincerest thanks for your prayers and support,

The Family of Helen Jones
