Help Against a Hate Crime & Save Devin’s Smile

My cousin Devin Freelon Jr. was attacked on June 6th 2020 by a racist while out with his friends at Sterling State Park. Devin got separated from his friends for a second when a guy came up to them and started to verbally attacking them with racial slurs. Things escalated and the guy went to his car got a chain with a lock and hit Devin in his face with the weapon. Devin was taken to two different hospitals in an ambulance which we all know is very expensive. They stitched up his lip but we have to wait to see how his jaw heals to see if surgery is needed. During this all Devin lost 3 of teeth. If you know Devin you know he takes pride in his smile and his looks and is a known “pretty boy”. Insurance does not cover getting new teeth due to it being considered a cosmetic surgery.  Devin is only 18 years old and as I write this 4 days away from graduating high school. This year has already taken a lot from him as a senior and as a African American, with the tension going on in America currently it’s a shame the hate in this world has taken another thing from him.
