Natalie McCormick-Witte's friends are raising money for medical expenses & in-home care needed to recover from her vicious attack.

On March 8th, my friend Natalie was lured to a local casino by a text from her ex telling her that his Granny needed a ride home because he was too drunk to drive. Little did she know that it was a set up. She was brutally attacked by her ex's new girlfriend in the bathroom - falling backwards and hitting her head hard on the floor.

She's been suffering with excruciating head pain, as well as severe forgetfulness, which interferes with her medication schedule, doctor's appointments, and has caused her to barely notice signs of internal bleeding over these past few weeks. The bleeding is now serious enough to possibly require surgery, but at the very least, complete bed rest.

Natalie has no family or local friends who can provide her with the care she needs to have the complete bed rest her doctor has ordered for her to recover. It has become clear that she needs hired help, which she can not afford.

UPDATE 4/17/12: Many tests have been done this week and more tests are scheduled to determine when Natalie will be able to have surgery. We haven't raised enough to pay for in-home care as we hoped we could, but the medical expenses are mounting. If we can't raise more money today, then the moneys collected so far will be used for medical expenses or part-time help as needed.

Won't you please join me in contributing to Natalie's care and medical expenses so she can continue to heal from this horrible attack?

With much gratitude,

Barbara Grasso
Natalie's Friend

PS: I will be acting as the beneficiary of the donated funds in anticipation of Natalie's surgery. This may change once Natalie's condition becomes more stable.
