Hollywood dream snatched away

On September 3rd my fiance Damian Benjamin was involved in an act of gun violence and robbery just trying to walk to his car and go in for the night. He was out celebrating his success coming back from Hollywood. He was shot in the back at close range and in his face causing major blood lose,several punctured and broken ribs. He was rushed to the hospital without family being notified until the next morning out of surgery. During his surgery they had to re-cut an old gun shot wound  to make sure he didn't have any internal bleeding, and after surgery he was hooked up to breathing machines. Doctors and nurses say it's nothing short of a miracle  he is still with us today and that the bullets were inches away from being fatal! But with patience, love, and physical therapy we hope for a speedy recovery!

So word got around quick, our home and businesses establishment was burglarized the same night. We have 6 kids together and luckily no one was there at the time.  With both of companies merged into one location, we both lost all of our equipment ,stock and inventory, years worth of materials and memorabilia items we cannot get back.

He was able to go there on business and end up meeting with some one who can land him closer to his Music career. Coming back to tell the news to all his family and friends, just led to jealousy and hate or simply the pressure of the Covid pandemic .
51739236_1602176048256061_r.jpegDamian is the oldest child on both sides of his family. Outside of his career before anything he is a father, a supporter, caring and loving man. He gives back to the community and helps anyone in need. Even after this terrible event he wants to organize a local program to raise awareness about gun violence and help those who have similar stories. Being that he is not capable to work and do anything with too much labor. We are looking for any donations to help my fiance' with medical bills, equipment we have lost during the robbery and funding for our organization to make this possible !
