No, this is not a pair of headphones, this is a story of the result of severe abuse - 3rd surgery to try to restore hearing..  In June 2017 my daughter sustained a broker clavicle, shattered ear drum and loss of hearing, concussion, misalignment of her jaw plus multiple contusions and bruises.  Thank-goodness, after several years of abuse, both physical and mental, she was brave enough to say "I have had enough!"  Many victims do not get this chance.

Her "alleged" abuser has been in jail since June 2017, awaiting trial.  To add insult to injury, the "alleged" abuser's family has a givesendgo account, and has raised over $20,000 for his defense.  I know parents are not responsible for what their grown children do, but my daughter has had 5 or 6 surgeries, time out of work and has endured all of this without any assistance or help with finances.  She has major medical bills and it is still ongoing.  Why is "Family Crisis" raising money to help someone sitting in jail since June 2017. They have money given to his family, but the victim has to handle everything on her own?  Do these contributors really know what kind of person they are helping?

We all hear awful stories of abuse, but you never think it will hit close to home.  Our beautiful, successful, outgoing daughter was severely abused by a boyfriend over the course of several years.  You might ask "why didn't she get out or leave him", but it is not a simple answer.

Victims of domestic abuse are told it's their fault, and the victim is told the they made the abuser hit them, burn them, break bones and whatever else they do in a fit of anger. Often they are told who they can associate with, what to wear, where they can go, even down to how to decorate the house. Victims start to feel helpless, and keep quiet because the abuser threatens the victims children, family and friends.  Everyone the victim knows (including themselves) are threatened by the abuser to keep the victim in line.  Abusers are so controlling and the victim is so terrified that the  victims keep everything inside, deathly afraid to tell anyone.   Abusers alienate them from family and friends.
I cannot stay quiet any longer.  Friends, if an "alleged abuser" is getting funds from people that don't know the full story, what about the victims.  I don't think the authorities would keep this guy in jail for 9 months if he was innocent.  Do you?

My daughter wants to help other victims of abuse, not herself  Any funds raised will go to LAWS (Loudoun Abuse Womens Shelter).  They are having a fundraising event May 12, 2018.  It would be awsome to help this wonderful cause.  PLEASE HELP VICTIMS OF ABUSE ! 

Update 5/9/18 ....
LAWS benefit is the weekend.  Jennifer will be presenting them with a check in the amount of your kind donations.  She is very honored to be able to participate in their efforts and we all thank everyone for their kind donations.  Please make sure you send your email address if you have donated as Jennifer and LAWS would like to personally thank -you.  Again, thank-you so much!
