Vicious dog attack!

$4,355 of $5,500 goal

Raised by 85 people in 25 months

My friend Richard Smith's daughter, Renee is a traveling nurse who is currently working in Hawaii.  She was attacked yesterday by a pitbull and is in the hospital with severe lacerations and bites.  She has over 50 stiches from this brutal attack. 

I am starting this account to raise money for Richard so that he can take off from his job and fly there to be with her.  Not only is the flight almost $1500, but he would also need money once he is there to get back and forth from the hospital, but he would be missing work.  Like most of us, he can't afford to miss a day, let alone a week.
If you know Richard, he is always there to help his family,friends and church, never expecting anything in return. Let's all show him the same generosity and get him to his daughter!!  
Please donate whatever you feel led to give and know that no amount is too small.
Thank you in advance for your donations and your prayers.

Most of Renee's family has returned home now..including her dad.
Her sister Rochelle is there now and will be staying a couple weeks.
Renee didn't have to have the last scheduled skin graft and she was grateful for that!!
The family wants to thank EVERYONE for their very generous donations, prayers, texts, phone calls, and concern!!!
Renee will probably be headed back stateside to continue her recovery and will be off work for an undetermined amount of time.
She still has bills, car payment, etc and so I will leave this campaign active until June 30th.

Thank everyone who has donated and made it possible for family to travel there and back and to help Renee financially thus far.
You have all truly been a blessing!!!

I want to post one more update and give everyone another chance to donate!!

Renee is home from the hospital and according to her dad, Richard, she is in relatively good spirits but may have another surgery.
She has been using a "wound vac" to help the skin heal and prepare for another skin graph on Wednesday.
She is not looking forward to any of her family leaving and although she is still having thoughts of the dog that attacked her, she is thankful for all the prayers and support she has received!!! She is a very special young lady.
Like I previously said, she is looking at more time off from work and could use the financial help.
Please consider giving whatever you can!!
Thank you all again and GOD BLESS!!

Good news from "camp Renee"!!
Richard has informed me that Renee came thru her surgery with flying colors!! The staples were removed from her head, and they have done some repair work on the arm which was severely bitten. They do believe that they have reduced the entire scarred area very significantly!!
They are now focusing on trying to coordinate things with her work company. She is there under a contract, and there are concerns about what they will and won't cover while she is off work.
PLEASE KEEP Renee and HER situation in prayer and if you haven't donated, please consider it and if you have and are able to do so again, please consider blessing this young woman as she tries to recover from this HORRIBLE HORRIBLE trauma.
Thank you all so much!!!!!

So Renee's dad, Richard has arrived in Hawaii at the hospital!!
He left yesterday morning and was able to surprise her by afternoon!!
I spoke with Richard last night, and despite having been up for almost 24 hours, he was overwhelmed with gratitude for all of you making this possible!! He will be there today for her surgery and will keep us updated.
Now THAT that expense is out of the way, the rest of these funds will serve to help Renee while she is off work. PLEASE CONTINUE to share and/or give generously!
I have increased our goal slightly because as I stated before, she is going to be off work longer than originally thought!

Thank you all so much for helping this family during a very stressful and scary time.
God bless!!
