Rockford Family Victimized By Violent Crime Needs Your Help
It's impossible to imagine the horror and feeling of experiencing a scenario like this. A Rockford woman was putting her child into his car seat when a gunman opened fire sticking her and her 9-month-old child. Her other child and her mother witnessed the shooting.
In a GoFundMe campaign, the 22-year-old mother described what happened.
As the man opened fire I was struck with 2 Bullets in my left leg and one in my right, the one in my right leg went all the way through and to my son where he was hit in the shoulder very close to his head. I started screaming my baby has been shot and ran with my 9-month-old baby in my arms as best as I could applying pressure to his wombs awaiting for the ambulance.
This young woman is humbly asking for financial help for medical treatments for baby Lorenzo and transportation, as well. Paying it forward isn't a bad thing, in fact often times it comes back full circle.
