Fundraiser Details

My name is Chris Solis and I'm starting a fundraiser for my 19 year old sister who was struck by a stray bullet while watching tv on December 14th. A bullet traveled through her arm and into her side which then lodged itself in her spinal canal. Doctors are saying she'll be paralyzed from the waist down. She was a hard working girl who was spending every check to buy Christmas gifts for our 3 nieces and 7 month old nephew. She had a closet full of gifts that she couldn't wait to wrap for the kids and now she'll most likely be spending it in the hospital. 

I'm asking for any donations to help cover medical expenses for her and/or donations to help give her a somewhat decent Christmas. 

Any little bit will help.

Thank you all and god bless.

12/30: THANK YOU to everyone who has helped donate so far. A quick update today, a few days ago Dominique was able to wiggle her left leg a little and with her boyfriend holding her leg she was able to lift it some so that's a HUGE progress. Thank you to all the news stations and radio stations who have helped us by posting a link to their page or public forums. Have a safe New Years everyone.

12/23: Great progress made so far, the nurses put Dominique into a wheelchair and let her go outside for some fresh air. Her pains are still there off and on but again she's still being positive and strong. Thank you to all of those who have donated and continue to.

12/20: Yesterday Dominique sat up with the assistance of the nurses which is a huge step. She's still in a lot of pain from time to time but she's getting tingly sensations here and there through her feet so that's definitely a positive sign. Thank you to all that have donated and to those who are planning on it. The responses from you guys have been overwhelming.
