Recovery for Drake: Bullying Assault

On behalf of Drake Camara and his family, we are starting a “GoFundMe” page to help support his recovery. Ten year old Drake was assaulted by 3 teenagers in an attempt to protect his 8 and 6 year old brothers from bullying on the way home from school. He was picked up and drove head first into the road in front of a car. The attackers waited to toss him until a car was coming for which he was almost struck by the vehicle. He received 12 stitches and 4 staples, and those are only his physical scars.

Drake is a loving boy who loves art, building robots, as well as just making everyone smile. 

 He is a sweet boy who is the victim of a brutal assault and bullying. Over the past few days I've been watching his family struggle with the emotional, physical and financial results of this attack. This ten year old hero stood between his younger brothers and 3 teenagers. This is his result! 

Their family is suffering and I cannot sit back and watch them struggle without doing something. I've seen the financial woes so far and know they are looking at therapy for all their boys, also they are looking into moving/ switching him schools. We want to share his story, and see if there are those that feel they can't sit by and let this be our world. Where kids are victims. His mother posted a Facebook post and this is Drake's story.

Your support is needed to help with medical expenses, and other costs of this crime. The parents are looking into counseling for all 3 boys and are attempting to move so they can place Drake in a better school. No amount is too small. Your help is truly appreciated by all of us who love and wish a fast recovery for Drake. Thank You!
