Help Aryiah Heal from a Tragic Assault

Donation protected
It pains me to write this,
On April 8,2024 my 15 year old daughter and her teenage co-workers were assaulted at their place of employment. In minutes, our family's life shattered when my only daughter was assaulted outside of the McDonald’s on Parker Road and 367. As shown in the video , there was a number of people whom we later found out were adults. They came into the McDonald’s and began to spit on my daughter and the young man at the cash register. The incident started in the drive thru and escalated inside. The adults also began to destroy McDonald’s property by throwing things and damaging the self serve screens. In the video you can see the Adult male grabbing and dragging Aryiah by her long braids , and stomping her in her head. He then let her go, but returned to punch her numerous of times in her face. She was admitted to one of the local hospitals in Saint Louis with a nose fracture and frontal lobe damage. Aryiah has also sustained a broken nose, a concussion, and many lacerations in her head. Aryiah had to have surgery April 17, which was a success. She is fighting hard to stay upbeat and heal but this is only the beginning of a very uphill battle. She is currently on bed rest in hopes to return to work. She need help with medical expenses.
A little bit about Aryiah….. She is a 15 year old ambitious young lady, who enjoys spending time with her siblings and working at McDonald’s. She is saving money for her upcoming birthday. Aryiah is very independent, she is a loving and sweet girl who would give a person the shirt off of her back. She also loves school and is looking forward to walking the stage at graduation. This assault has been a life changing experience for her. Please keep Aryiah in your prayers and lets help to uplift her in the most positive way to help her remain in good spirits. With heavy hearts I am asking for support for our beloved Aryiah. Every Donation, big or small, will go directly towards easing these stressful days for her as she heals to get back to herself.
The overwhelming response from friends, family, and the community has already brought our family to tears. We offer everyone our deepest gratitude. Thank you for coming together for us in this time of need.
We are forever grateful ❤️
