Road to Recovery: The Elyse Spencer & Family Story

Donation protected
My name is Elantra Spencer and on Tuesday,  August 20th, 2019 around 11pm I received a call that my sister Elyse, a week old freshman at Spelman College, had just been shot in the chest right by her heart. Since then and upon contacting my mother, our only priority has been arriving in Atlanta to standby  my sister. Though my family has been able to accrue the financial and emotional assistance to reach Atlanta, we are navigating unprecedented waters with minimal resources. Just a few weeks ago my mother used all of her funds to send Elyse off to college and cannot financially navigate this crsis on her own. 

We are hoping $5,000 is enough to cover the long road of recovery ahead, from medical expenses to family survival. Currently Elyse is recovering from her emergency surgery and we are anticipating what our next steps will be.

We are open to financial assistance and any guidance of how we can best take care of Elyse and family needs.

Thank you for all those who have and continue to pour into my family, it has meant the world to us.
