Mother of Special needs Child Beaten

Sharon (real name withheld for her child's sake), was brutally beaten with a Tire Iron by her spouse in Pennsylvania, and was left bleeding in her house with a broken leg, a broken arm, a broken wrist and a beaten face. Her spouse took her phone, so when she regained consciousness, she had to crawl across her yard and street to get a neighbors help.

Sharon has a 9 year old Special needs child that was in school while the attack happened. Sharon doesn't want her child to know that Daddy did this to mommy, which is why she is not using her photo or real name.

Sharon is a hardworking mom that did heavy duty physical work outside until this happened. Sharon had to sell a used truck (with over a 100,000 miles) she just bought last year, so she could pay rent for the last 2 months. She had saved up for 2 years to buy that old truck.

Sharon needs to put food on the table for herself and her daughter, she will not be able to work for months as result of this horrible attack, and as her job was outside laborer cold weather will probably be upon her, when it is difficult to find work to begin with. She is in a desperate need for money.

She wants to take her Special needs child to psychiatrist to help explain why Daddy is no longer around, and what actually happened regarding the attack, yet Sharon can not afford such a visit at this time.

Her hand and leg are still in a cast and her hand is so severely broken she can't even wash dishes without severe pain. She has always worked hard to keep her child and herself taken care of. She is Blue collar Worker & has built her small outdoor business enough to support her family, she is NOT used to handouts yet she needs help desperately and is a Great mom and good person. I am pleading for her, PLEASE HELP HER.

Her Spouse was caught in another state over a thousand miles away, and is currently in custody until he can be extradited to Pennsylvania. The Covid Virus situation has kept him detained in that other state in the mid-West.

Sharon had her own little outdoor business, so she doesn't qualify for unemployment. She is running out of things to sell, to support herself and her daughter. I am not naming the special need of the child to protect the child, yet it is severe, and Sharon deserves a metal just for raising her daughter!

Sharon has lost her ability to work for a while, she has lost the ability to drive her Special needs child around, and without financial help she is losing her ability to provide for food and housing. 

Please help this woman get back on her feet.
