Nicole Guild
on behalf of Jessica Williams
 MIDDLESEX, NJ
My name is Nicole Guild and on Thursday, May 18th, my beautiful 19 year old cousin Jessica Williams went to New York for Senior Skip Day. Little did anyone know that she would end up being one of the many pedestrians mauled down by a crazed man. It was a phone call I never expected to receive and one I wish never had to be made. She is currently in critical condition with many surgeries and a long road to recovery ahead of her. High school prom and graduation for Dunellen are just weeks away and the excitement of all of that has been ripped away from her as she is now fighting for her life. Jessica is one of the most loving people I know and has such a passion for life. Her road to recovery is going to be lengthy and expensive. I am trying to help my family out in any way I can and I am asking for donations to help her single income family afford all the upcoming medical expenses. No amount is too small and, if you can't donate, please pray. Thank you.

The money raised from this campaign will be handled by Jessica's mother, Elaine Williams, who is the beneficiary.

In light of the recent facts of just how much more Jessica has to go thru for many, many more months to come, I am increasing the goal again. I knew she had a lot to go thru, I just don't think I fully realized the extent of it or cost of it. The rod that was placed in her leg earlier this week is permanent and her pelvis is more damaged than we thought. She is going in for a roughly 7-8 hour surgery today to reconstruct it as best as possible so please keep her in your prayers and thoughts. I am not sure yet if there are going to be more surgeries after this one but I will continue to update as I have information. It's still hard for everyone to wrap their heads around just how much she has been thru and still has to go thru. Like I've said before tho, she is a fighter and she will pull thru. We are all staying positive for her and finding hope in the little, but important, improvements she is making. My family and I are truly grateful for all the love and support and I know Jessica will be overwhelmed with those same feelings when she is recovered and gets to look at all your comments of encouragement.

I want to again thank everyone for their prayer, well wishes, and donations. My family and I truly appreciate all the love and support that has been shown. In regards to Jessica, she had the surgery on her leg yesterday and there is a rod in place. She is currently still in traction and the damage to her pelvis still needs to be taken care of. Little by little she is improving and, although they are baby steps, they are important baby steps. She has a long way to go but she is proving to be quite the fighter and I have no doubt that she will continue to make progress as the weeks and months go on. I also do want to express that there was a fake GoFundMe account created by someone who literally copied and pasted the information on this one. I very quickly took care of the situation and it was removed however I want to warn everyone that if the GoFundMe was not created on May 19th, 2017 by me, Nicole Guild, then it is not the one that the donations will reach Jessica. Again, thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

My family and I want to truly thank everyone for their donations, support, and prayers. It is honestly overwhelming how much support has been shown from loved ones, friends, and complete strangers. I never thought that a simple GoFundMe for my cousin would go as far it has. I set it up with a goal of $15,000 which I thought was unattainable since I thought it was only going to hit family and friends. With the outpouring of love and support, numerous people have asked that I increase the goal. With the costs of her surgeries, hospital stay, medicines, travel costs for her mom, and basic things such as rent, food, etc that still need to be paid for while her mother, the only income of the household is missing a lot of time at work, I agree with them. So I have increased the goal. There is just no way to put into words the gratitude our family feels in this very tough time. Thank you all so much again.

The amount of support and love is so overwhelming. Thank you all for your donations, well wishes, and prayers. Her spleen was removed yesterday and the damage to her face was stitched up today. Her leg is still broken and will require surgery at a later time. She is still in traction due to the open fracture pelvis and that will also need to be addressed more at a later time. They have her sedated pretty heavily to keep her comfortable. She is strong, she is a fighter, and she will pull through this.
