Hi, my name is Tatum. I really wasn't going to do this, but my family is not wealthy to the extent of paying months of medical bills. On Thursday the 18th, I was painting in my safe place and was shortly thereafter stabbed in my stomach by my 29 year old brother. My brother is schizo-active, (schizophrenic). He has never been violent to that extent, and so when he held a technicolor mermaid blade to my neck, I did not panic. I firmly asked him for the blade back, he then charged at me and punctured my lower abdomen and continued to throw stabs & ended up only nicking my face. The blade was half a centimeter from my main artery, in which I would have been dead in minutes. This was the most abrupt and scary thing that has ever happened to me and my family. It's great if you could donate, but its also important to just read this and realize that anything can happen to anyone at anytime. Thank you for reading if you read this far. Please be aware and have faith in yourself to push.
