Terri Cosby Mauled by 4 Pit Bulls

On Saturday night, May 5th, 2018, my 54-year old sister, Terri (pictured below, left), a mother-of-three, was walking from a friend's house one-block away from her home when she was viciously attacked by 4 pit bulls that got out of their yard.  Two men attempted to help but were also treated for deep lacerations and a broken bone.  Witnesses could only watch in horror as she was mauled for 15 minutes until police arrived, when an officer could discharge his firearm (body cam video link below).  All of Terri's limbs were disfigured as flesh and blood were torn from her body.  She is currently in a level 1 Truama ICU.  One arm has been amputated and a leg may have to be amputated as well.  Doctors say she will endure multiple surgeries and skin grafts for several months just to recover, along with a lifetime of rehab and counseling.  She is in need of financial support to cover the medical costs along with rehabilitation from her traumatic injuries resulting from this nightmare experience.  My name is Beverly Golden, Terri's older sister, and we are trying to make people aware of the most horrific dog attack imaginable.

Terri (pictured below on the left) will be in the hopital for months and rehabilitating for the foreseeable future.  Pray for Terri through her furious surgery schedule and please help with funding.  The funds donated will be withdrawn and managed by Ernestine Grayson (Terri and I's mother) for the benefit of Terri Cosby and used for Terri's mounting hospital bills, foreseeable rehabilitation, and further counseling.

Please help with funds and prayers !!

Terri is out of ICU (3rd time) and doing better, but many more surgeries are expected. Our family appreciates the emotional and spiritual support, and the funds Terri's GoFundMe page has received. The help of family, friends and absolute strangers renews our family's faith in the kindness of the world since this horrible attack happened. Myself, my sister, our mother (Ernestine), Terri's kids, and family have been busy splitting shifts at the hospital but we will try to keep updates coming on Terri's progress. Thank you to all.
