Medical bills for assault victim

$3,612 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 67 people in 9 months
Around 1:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, following a lovely brunch with some friends at Packard's in midtown Oklahoma City, I was brutally attacked and carjacked by an apparently homeless and intoxicated woman in broad daylight in a crowded area. As I sat in my driver seat, I noticed in my rearview mirror my trunk was open and a woman was messing with it. When I opened my door to confront her, the woman slowly approached me and told me the trunk was broken. But then she pulled a large, broken glass bottle from her purse, grabbed me by my hair and forced me out of the vehicle. She then hit my head and face repeatedly until blood was literally dripping from my head down to my toes. She pulled out chunks of my hair, and after my friend, who was on the phone with 911, yelled at her to get off of me, the woman drove off with my car.

Police found my car a couple days later in a field in Oklahoma City, which is totaled. The suspect is still at large. I'm unfortunately going to struggle very much with being able to pay all of the medical bills and the expenses that will come with getting a new car. I was supposed to have medical insurance when I started my new teaching job in August, so the timing of the attack has been even more unfortunate.

Any help that you can contribute is very, very much appreciated. I am a grad student at the University of Oklahoma and working my way through school. Even a donation of as little as $5 will help me be able to handle the financial burden that comes with almost losing my life.

Thank you for the outpouring of support and love. It means more than you know.
