On January 5th my sister and her two young daughters , age 7 and age 1, were sitting in their car in an Oakland neighborhood when someone open fire nearby making my youngest niece an innocent victim of gun violence. As my sister sped off to the nearest hospital, she instructed her 7 year old to apply pressure to her 1 year old gunshot wound. We are seeking funds to cover medical bills for Yorie's speedy recovery and her superhero of a sister counseling bills. We also ask that you keep the girls and our family in prayers. We appreciate your contribution to Yorie's recovery. God bless.

I would like to thank you all who have prayed, donated, and sent your kind words. The power of prayer works. Yorie has been rehabbing & although her injury was to her back she is still able to walk.

I just want to say, when this tragic event accured I didn't know what the cost of medical bills would be for something like this. There were 3 people involved in this, my two beautiful nieces and their mom. My goal, when creating this, was to make sure that all 3 of them got the help they needed mentally having to deal with such a life changing event. All I've ever know was that medical bill are expensive x 3. Not everyone is out to scam people. This is a tragic event that my family had endured and something the girls and my sister will have to deal with for a long time.

If you didn't find the need in your heart to donate, that's fine, but even if you sent a prayer up to the heavens we appreciate. The power of prayer works and because of it Yorie has made tremendous strides in her recovery. Negative comments are not need at this time, your prayers are. We thank you all and may God continue to bless you and your families.

God bless these children and their family. I know they will need years of counseling to recover from this type of trauma and to learn to feel safe again. May Our Lord bless their lives richly with health and wealth. #InJesusName#

So sad to see the negativity that this campaign has received. I have been following this campaign closely and its heart breaking to see that a dog hospital raise e money than a child in the fight for her life. Keep your negative comments to yourself, always remember if your not helping your hurting!!!
