Help Martin recover from dog attack

Donation protected
Hello my name is Grace, I would like to ask our El Paso community to come together for Norma Gonzalez and her son Martin, a Clint Independent student, and the rest of their family. On the morning of April 18th on his way to school he was viciously attacked by pit bulls who destroyed his face, left him with fear, anxiety, and trauma. The wounds on his face are so deep that he's missing teeth along with the gums, parts of his lip, cheek, neck and an entire ear. This is not the first time these same dogs have tried to chase and attack other kids in the same neighborhood. These dogs need to be taken care of or need to be put down. It's not fair that innocent kids like Martin can’t go outside and play without the fear of being mangled by loose dogs owned by irresponsible dog owners. Martin’s life is forever changed and his family forever scarred. This family is going through a lot right now, they are not only in shock but very sad and speechless because of this tragic event. This will be a long road to recovery for not only him but his family. We are asking the community to come together and help raise money for any expenses. Any amount will make a difference. If you cannot help out with money, a prayer for him and his family would be greatly appreciated. Lets make it easier on them so that they don't have to struggle day by day. Let’s make it to where they won’t have to struggle with medical funds and and having to struggle with everyday expenses. Martins mom was told by nurses that she needs to be by his side 24/7. His mom has no choice but to sit next to her son and leave the rest of her kids behind at home. We don’t want his family to worry about bills, food, hospital expenses, transportation etc. We want them to only focus on his care and give him their undivided attention. Not only from his family and friends, but from you. A donation as little as $1 will help out tremendously. Ive see El Paso come together many times before. We are united and we are El Paso Strong so please join us in this to make a difference in this little boys life.
 Thank you to all!
