SF Cat Caller Stabbing Victim

My name is Miyoko and Early Saturday morning on the corner of O'farrell and Larkin in San Francisco, CA in the heart of the Tenderloin, my boyfriend Ben Schwartz was stabbed 9 times in an effort to defend me, his girlfriend from a relentless cat caller.  When he asked the man to stop he immediately started attacking Ben.
  Ben was rushed to SF general where he underwent surgery to close a punctured lung and to stitch the deep wounds along the back of his neck, back, face, and arms. While the suspect took off in a silver sedan no where to be found. 
The doctors say he is very lucky to be alive considering how close the cuts were to main arteries and one just missing his spinal cord.
We are all so very thankful that he made it out alive and is healing well at home now.
I think I can speak for myself and of all of Ben's friends when I say he is the sweetest most loving friend out there. He is there when you need a good laugh, a hug, or even just someone to listen to you. Its shocking to think something like this could happen to such an amazing person. That is why we are trying to raise money to help Ben and I get through these tough times.  Every little bit helps! We are hoping to raise enough money to help them with dreaded medical bills, rent, school bills and help us get back on our feet after missing so much work to heal from this terrible things thats happened. Thank You to everyone who donates to us in advance.
