March 4th I was horrified by an instagram post by Dylan Sada, which
showed her beautiful face bruised, cut, and swollen, and her eyes puffy
from crying. My horror and the outcry that followed from loved ones and
fans alike paled in comparison to the horrors this incredible, talented,
and undeniably strong woman endured. These are her words from the post,
describing only pieces of what it was like:
"when the first physical abused happened I told him I want to leave him but i was verbally abused, i was scared.
I had to lie to modeling jobs offers that I had an accident, fell and hurt my face.
it happened again. i was pinned down, kneed and elbowed on the face so hard my tongue is cut. I was pulled by the hair so hard then slammed to the floor. I have a huge bump on my head I got a CT scan.
abuse happens in real life, if you are going though even only verbally
abused, please leave her or him. i was a fool who was in love who
thought he can change.
I'm hurt and deeply heartbroken but I'm done hiding this pain. seek help, free yourself if you can.
Verbal abuse to me is worst than physical abuse, scars and bruises go away but the pain inside last forever."
She has informed me that she is currently in mental healthy therapy, and is unsure of the medical costs accrued during her hospital stay.
Dylan has a long recovery road ahead of her, and I humbly ask for your help to donate or pass along the word, so that she won't have to worry about the (probably outrageous) medical bills coming her way.
The initial amount may seem quite large, but total costs are anticipated to be far greater. Speaking as a domestic abuse survivor, I can testify that getting your life back together after such a traumatic event takes time, patience, endurance, and money. I was personally out of work for 6 months, and as stated, Dylan's livelihood was vastly compromised while in her horribly abusive relationship.
She wrote how she wished
that no one else go through this ordeal, and the only way this sort of a
dream can be realized is that we start by spreading awareness, respect,
and most of all, LOVE!
Thank you so very much for taking the time to read her story.
