Dear Friends, Family & Community, I’m a dear friend of one of the two victims of a violent attack on the Venice, CA canals on Saturday, April 6th as she was doing her evening walk after work to get in her daily 10,000 steps. She is a 54 yr old single mother, having lived in Venice for years and serves as a full time caregiver to an elderly woman with ALS..

During the attack she received at least 8 fractures to her jaw, large laceration to the back of her head, several teeth are bashed out and multiple contusions on her face & neck. She will require many surgeries and is currently getting her jaw wired shut for at least a month. Not to mention she will, in time, need mental health support and guidance along with PT. 

All of these funds will go directly to the victim and her medical bills as well as long term physical and mental care. 

It’s doubtful she will be able to return to work for at least 6-8 weeks and she’s so worried about losing her small rental in Venice where she and her cat have resided for years. Many may know her for the wonderful sand art she builds in Venice for all the events. No amount is too small and every note is important for her to read support and love from everyone.

Thank you to all in the Venice, CA community that have come forward with videos to assist the LAPD and DA.
