Felicia Hambrick's Medical Donation
While Felicia desperately tried fending off the dog – the dog aggressively continued biting her arms, thighs, calf, behind her knee fold (right where the knee bends), her stomach, and her neck (some of the pics are shown below). Her friend’s mother who came to help was able to beat the dog with a broom long enough to get the baby away and continued beating the dog off of Felicia. A nearby neighbor heard Felicia screaming and called 911. The vicious attack (which Felicia stated it felt like 15-20 minutes) has unfortunately left my niece’s body permanently scarred for the rest of her life. Her path to recovery will be a long and painful one. Before this attack, Felicia was seeking a job at Tacoma General Hospital (TG) so that she could start helping her mother Robbyn Young pay for her educational student loans. Felicia never imagined that instead of finding a job at TG she would be spending time as a patient there instead. Now she will be facing a much long unexpected road to recovery which will include several surgeries, skin graphs, muscle/tendon repair, plastic surgery, and months of mental & physical therapy. Unfortunately, the most painful memory of all will be the constant reminder of seeing the 30-40 bites and gouges that cover her body which are now considered her battle scars. My niece, who is blessed to have survived, is my little brave hero who will need her family & friend’s to surround her with love and support. Together we all can change this bad situation that happened to a sweet caring and helpful person into a positive outcome.
On behalf of the love that I have for my nieces (her strong supportive mother: Robbyn Young & my great niece - Felicia Hambrick), I ask those who are able to please find it in your heart to donate to this much needed GoFundMe account. No donation is too small, AND all of the donations will go towards the cost of Felicia’s surgeries, post therapy and entire medical expenses. Any remaining funds will be applied to her educational loans.
Thank you in advance for your prayers, donations, love and support!
The family of Felicia Hambrick thanks each and every one of you for your donations, your prayers and kind words of encouragement. I write to update you on the status of my niece’s current situation. Felicia is making the most of her recovery by working daily to become stronger and stronger as her body allows. She is still surrounded with loving and caring family - and an abundant amount of friends who continue to support her through this ordeal. Through it all, Felicia still exhibits an amazing positive attitude and is extremely grateful for all who have been and continues to be apart of her recovery process.
Again, on behalf of Felicia Hambrick a sincere THANKS to all of her supporters. This campaign is officially closed.
I personally would like to publicly thank Journalist Craig Sailor from the The News Tribune for the fantastic article he wrote! You ROCK and as I mentioned to you in a private message...continue to bring knowledge and awareness to future stories of individuals who sacrifice their lives for others, but not just for stories of this nature but for STORIES that DESERVE PUBLIC ACKNOWLEDGEMENT! Again, thank you!
Rachel & the family
Stephani, please.. you know nothing about this other than what you read. And even that can change yet. Possibly when this was created she needed those grafts but she decided afterwards not to have them done. She may change her mind yet again, who knows. Quite honestly this is none of your business. She is an incredibly brave young woman and no matter what money she gets above and beyond her medical bills, she quite rightly deserves! Did you donate or did you just troll? If you don't wish to donate to a gofundme account that's your prerogative but unless you are this young woman or her Auntie, please leave your not so kind remarks to yourself. Don't you think she's gone through enough already? She doesn't need trolls along with pit bulls. And for goodness sake, what on earth makes you think the friend must have homeowners insurance? And if she rents why should the landlord be sued? Not his dog. But really, do you have any idea the percentage of people that actually have ins. is? The numbers are low, especially for renters. And Auntie... just keep on being her support and give her love for us all. Try your best to not listen to people like Stephani who must be miserable and just wants to share it. Get a hobby Stephani and I don't mean going around on comment boards being a troll.
God definitely has something more in store for you. What happened to you was awful and pure eveil. However, by reading the article it seems as if you're a forgiving person and you're very positive. I don't know why people want you to sue the dogs owner. that's your bestfriend. You are going about this the correct way.
I couldn't help but cry as I read this horrific story. I can't imagine those moments that seemed like hours I'm sure. I'm confident that she will heal from this just fine God will see too it. I work for TG and I'm sure her care givers are doing everything they can for her. Her dream of working at TG is still a possibility.. if you can dream it you can live it.. I tip my hat to you young lady for your courage in keeping the baby safe.. you are indeed an Angle. I'm praying for you and your family.. and I'm thanking Jesus in Advance for All that he is going to do for you..
I want to thank everyone for their kind words, prayers, thoughts and donations. I may not know all of you, but I am grateful for you all and whether you know it or not, you are all helping me along the way ♥ -Felicia
