Please help Lorena with her medical expenses!
Hello, my name is Ray Sullivan.
I shop at a local Walgreens store located near my residence in Union Square, CA.
This is a photo of a kind, elderly Walgreens Worker named Lorena.
She was brutally assaulted by a homeless appearing man last May, who entered the store without wearing a mask.
When Lorena stated Walgreen's mask wearing policy, the man became irate.
He verbally assaulted her, and then he began stealing items.
When Lorena told him to stop stealing the merchandise, he grabbed a heavy plastic hand cart and threw it at her head!
A customer called 911, and she was treated on the scene for head lacerations.
Then she was transported to the Emergency Room.
Her assailant ran away, and was never arrested, charged or convicted for this horrific assault!
Lorena suffered head lacerations, subdural bleeding and a concussion (Traumatic Brain Injury) following this senseless attack.
Lorena continues to deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) related symptoms, such as nightly sleep disturbances (nightmares), traumatic dissociation, headaches, anxiety, depression, and a heightened sense of arousal (Exaggerated Startle Response).
To make matters worse, this poor Walgreens worker has been returning to her place of employment
("the scene of the crime") everyday, just to earn enough money to pay her bills.
Can you even imagine, how traumatizing this must be for her?
I started this GoFundMe account to help raise funds for Lorena, so she can pay for PTSD Therapy sessions.
The money will also help her get access to additional Neurological testing and cranial evaluations, as necessary.
PTSD, combined with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can often times be debilitating and overwhelming (both emotionally and financially) for the victim.
Please contribute to this GoFundMe account, so Lorena can get access to the medical care and supportive services she requires.
Thank you so much for your generosity.
Your kind thoughts and prayers are also greatly appreciated!
