Support Laurie

Laurie, Laurie's mom Toni (my Dad's sister) is holding Denise (Laurie's sister)Deena (Laurie's sister).

For those of you who know Laurie (my cousin), you know that she is bubbly, loving, selfless, and full of life.  She has a beautiful soul and is always the life of the party and loves to talk, I mean really loves to talk :).   Laurie works 2 jobs just to make ends meet.  She walks or catches bus too and from work and never complains.   She is a mother of 2 and a grandma to 4 beautiful grand-babies. 




Well, on June 28th at 8:15 a.m. her life took a turn for the worse.  The perpetrator her then boyfriend of 14 years which struggled with major insecurities and drugs snapped, and while she was getting ready for work he beat her with a hammer and then tried to take his own life.  Let's just say, by the grace of God Laurie is alive.    She was able to think fast to help her stay coherent as she kept going in and out of consciousness for a few hours and was able to call the police when he fell asleep.  She was left with 75 stitches on her head and bruises all over her body.  

 This horrific event has left her with: 
* She is unable to go back to work until September due to vertigo that has been brought on by this beating. 
*  She needs to pay utilities on her apartment.
* She still has to pay the rent on the place that the beating happened. 
* She had to get rid of her bed since it was covered in blood. 
* She also needed to get the apartment professionally cleaned.
* Money just to  live day to day without having to worry about rushing back to work.

If you can help in any way our family and especially Laurie would be forever grateful.  We thank you in advance for your generosity and if you are unable to support financially  we ask for prayers of healing for Laurie.
