The Picture is the youngest victim of this tragedy She is almost 2 years old and she was burn from the top of her head down. We are trying to raise money for a family that were victims of a horrible crime. All of the victims were innocent bystanders, but no one deserves to be hurt like this. Below is more details about what happen.


Macy McLean is a single mom that works full-time for Budget Truck Rentals. The other victims are her Daughter and Grandchildren.We are trying to raise funds to help pay the bills so the family can focus on healing and not stress over losing their homes while in the hospital. The family will need anything you can give to help them survive while trying to heal.


Macy McLean went to her daughter's Tara McLean apartment to try to keep the peace in an escalating argument.  Tara's neighbor went inside and returned with a pot of hot grease. The neighbor then threw the pot of grease in the faces of McLean's mother, 6-year-old son, 27-year-old sister, as well as her three children, ages 8, 10, and 1. Two of the victims were flown to Jaycee Burn Center in Chapel Hill. The others were either driven to Jaycee Burn Center, or taken to nearby Charlotte Medical Center.

The ages of the children are 1, 3, 6, 8 and 10 years old. Macy McLean, is in serious condition with third-degree burns from her chin down at the Jaycee Burn Center, while Dana Sims McLean her other daughter is in fair condition. Three children remain at the burn center and are McLean's grandchildren. Macy's teenage daughter Tweet said "Some of them are in a lot of pain but for the most part they are healing.

 Macy is a very beautiful person inside and out and to see someone get (hurt) like this is sickening."

The hardest part is knowing the kids are in pain.

The youngest was a 1-year-old, who was burned from the forehead down. Macy McLean and the children had nothing to do with this.

The neighbor Regina Perry has been arrested and faces six counts of assault with a deadly weapon, inflicting serious injury and seven counts of malicious maiming.


We will post regular updates on the family's progress. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.

Hi everyone, we are still trying to raise funds for the family. While the children were still in the hospital the family lost their apartment. The family is staying at the Grandmothers house while she is still in the hospital receiving treatment for her burns. To make matters worse I've learned today the house doesn't have air conditioning so the children are having to suffer in this heat. We are trying to find someone who would donate the service in fixing the homes air conditioning. We hope everyone will open their hearts and donate a little something to help the family get though this horrible ordeal. Here is a link to the donation page - http://www.gofundme.com/s5jhw Even if it's just $5.00 every dollar counts!! If interested in helping you can contact me though the donation site we also post updates there. Thanks everyone who has already help!!
