As we all know Andrea was a victim of a crime on the15th September 2018. Andrea (25 years old at the time) was out with her friends for supper. It had been a good night and she was heading home. Standing on the curb chatting to her friends, before getting into the car, when her life changed.
A restaurant down the road had been robbed, a car had given chase and the robbers let off 3 gunshots. The third bullet hit Andrea. The bullet went through her ribs, her lung, and her spine. At the time, the good news was that it hadn’t gone through her spinal cord, but her spinal bone. Unfortunately, the shock waves traveled and damaged her spine – leaving her paralyzed from the waist down.
After two weeks in the hospital, Andrea was moved into the rehabilitation hospital, where she remained until the 21st of December. Due to financial issues rehabilitation stopped. We did organise a crowdfunding page that will help her recover unfortunately we did not receive the funds we were hoping for.
