Sonya's Long Road to Recovery Fund

This is my beautiful cousin, Sonya. On August 30th, her life was forever changed...
She and her 4 year old daughter were brutally assaulted and left for dead in their home.


Sonya's Precious 4 year old daughter suffered skull fractures and possible permanent hearing loss in one ear. But thankfully, she is on the road to recovery!

Sonya has been through two brain surgeries, now has plates replacing the part of her skull that was "pulverized", a surgery repairing and rebuilding her fractured orbital socket and sinuses .  She spent 2 weeks in ICU and a total of 5 1/2 weeks in the hospital. The fact that she is alive is truly a miracle!

Sonya is such a strong woman, but is facing a long road to recovery - physically and emotionally.
She is suffering with migraines, is in constant pain, has some limited range of motion and is suffering with PTSD.

People with TBI's (Traumatic Brain Injuries) require multiple therapies (speech, occupational, physical and talk therapy) and their recovery takes time and requires plenty of rest. Prior to the assault, Sonya was a full-time stay at home mom, chasing after her precious 4 and 5 year old daughters. She is now trying to recover, run a household and needs your help.

I originally set up this GoFundMe Trust account to assist with ongoing medical expenses, help with the at-home care and therapies Sonya is required to have, as well as childcare for her daughters, as needed. But in March, Sonya's husband filed for divorce, so as a disabled, single mother of two, her needs are now even greater. 

Please help if you're able because no donation is too small and every donation is greatly appreciated! Please keep Sonya and her family in your prayers.

This should be a time of nurturing and healing, but now Sonya is going through the added stress of divorce and being a disabled, single mother of two trying to make ends meet. Please keep Sonya and her daughters in your prayers.

As Sonya would say, "This is fabulous!" She couldn't do it without all of your love & support. Thank you! Thank you!
