Support Penny Journey to Recovery

On January 17th, Penny and her mother were shot outside a church in Cypress TX. Unfortunately, Her mother, Graciela Torres, didn’t survive. 

Penny is is in ICU after three surgeries to remove the bullets. She’s in critical condition but stable at the moment. 

She lost her best friend and mother.  She is a great mother, wife, sister, and was a great daughter! She stayed home to take care of her 1 yr old daughter until recently she started new job, but unfortunately her health insurance doesn’t kick in until February 1st! 

We are just asking for help for the unforeseen medical expenses and funeral expenses for her mother.  My brother Rey Zapata and Penny appreciate everyone prayers and donations! Thank you in advance.
