The family and friends of Melissa Bostick are uniting to raise money to help with medical expenses for unfair treatment.

One year ago, Melissa and a friend went out for what was supposed to be a normal girl's night out to a concert. Towards the end of the concert, people were allowed to go on stage, Melissa and her friend Nathalie took advantage of this opportunity and began walking up the stairs onto the stage, Melissa was suddenly grabbed by her ankle from someone below the stairs and was told to come down. Since this woman was security, she turned back without argueing, but the security woman continued to grab and pull at her ankle, which caused her whole right side of her body to fall and get stuck between the stage and the stairs. Since the friend she was with was in front of her, she had no idea Melissa had fell. People continued to go on stage without helping her, including the security staff didn't help . We are still to this day unsure of why the lady did this. The only explanation we got was that, "They were choosing who they wanted to go on the stage." This fall resulted in severe back pain, a herniated disk and several Doctors visits. Melissa currently is undergoing more exams because they believe there is something wrong with her sacrum which the doctors missed in previous exams. The doctors have explained this injury also would result in surgery. The company is currently not paying for medical expenses. Like many Americans, Melissa has no Insurance and is unable to get insurance at this time. She now has to undergo surgery to prevent any further injury, a sudden wrong movement could leave her permanently paralyzed.
The surgery she needs is nearly $55,000! Please help us reach this goal! If this happened to you or someone you loved, you would pray for help as well! If 55,000 people donated at least $1 we could help this young girl get the surgery she desperately needs! You can help Melissa get her life back! Any donation
would be greatly appreciated.

If making a donation is not a option please share this story in hopes of getting the word out to someone that could possibly help. :)
