The Story

FUNDRAISER UPDATE 11/25/17:

Hello everyone. I'm sorry to report that we have to change the fundraiser goal once more. As mentioned previously, Jee has been suffering from excruciating pain due to the injuries sustained from her sexual assault, and it has been steadily getting worse despite the treatments she has been receiving. It has reached a critical point, where it became necessary to change her treatment plans, which unfortunately means increasing the amount needed in this fundraiser. As I mentioned previously, she still does not have insurance, nor is she able to work. The cost has been increased to an additional $8500 to cover for the following changes made in her treatment plan:

Clinical Massage - $80/session, 3x per week 

Chiropractor- $65/session, 2x per week 

Psychiatrist- $125/session, 1x per week  

CBD 1000mg tincture- $79/bottle, 4x per month  

CBD pain cream- $59/bottle, 3x per month 

Indica vape cartridge- $45, 6x per month

I know this is a huge jump in funds, and I am grateful for everyone who has helped us this far. For those of us who are not able to donate, please continue sharing this fundraiser. Thank you for your understanding and patience with Jee's healing process and journey to physical wellness.

UPDATE 10/9/17:

Thank you to everyone who has donated  to meet our initial goal. Your contributions have helped Jee secure an apartment, and cover her medical expenses for this month. However, because of Jee's fragile physical and emotional state, it is not possible for her to get a job and start supporting herself at the end of this month. I have extended the goal for an addition $5000 to cover for the following things:

- her chiropractor bills, which is at $650/month, to help her recover from the physical injuries sustained from the sexual assault

- her psychiatrist appointments, which is at $575/month, to help treat her PTSD  

- bills for her new apartment, as she is not physically or emotionally ready to resume her freelancing job

I am hoping this will help her spend the next few months in recovery without the additional stress of having to deal with financial anxiety on top of the trauma that she has already experienced. Thank you all so much for your kindness and generosity. You have been amazing and supportive, and we are grateful to everyone who has helped us so far.

ORIGINAL FUNDRAISER DESCRIPTION:

Hello! I am starting a fundraiser on behalf of my friend Jee Jing, who has recently suffered from sexual assault when she was raped in her own apartment. In the traumatic aftermath, she was also fired from her job a week later. Because she is a freelance photographer, she lives paycheck by paycheck, and currently has no way of keeping herself afloat, especially considering the fact that she needs funds to pay for her physical injuries as well as for her mental health. Currently, I want to raise at least $10,000 for her. The funds will be for

- Medical treatment: she needs treatment from the physical injuries sustained during the sexual assault, which includes chiropractic and physical therapy
- Psychiatric therapy: she needs therapy for her PTSD
- Relocation: as her attacker knows where she lives, and she does not feel safe living in her current apartment
- Transportation: she needs funds that can take her to and from her healthcare appointments

Jee has long been a fierce advocate for the marginalized, and as her friend, I have seen her campaign tirelessly for the rights of women of color in the queer community. Even now, when she is suffering, she wishes to speak openly about her struggles to help other women who have been sexually assaulted. To read more about her journey, see here: http://jeejing.wordpress.com 

Please help by donating some money for her -- even if it is as small as a dollar, every little bit counts. If you cannot spare the money, please consider sharing this fundraiser so that we can bring a little awareness for her situation. Thank you so much for your help!

Hello everyone!

I have some good news, which is that we met our initial goal! Again, thank you so much for giving and sharing her fundraiser, and I am beyond happy that we were able to raise this amount for her. With this fund, Jee was able to get to a new apartment, and she has enough to cover her medical costs for this month. This is an incredible victory, and we wouldn't have been able to achieve it without everybody.

However, some bad news is that Jee's mental and physical condition is very fragile, and currently she is not in a position where she can find a job at the end of the month to start supporting herself, especially considering that she still needs help paying for her medical treatment. I would like to extend this fundraiser to get her medical bills covered for the next few months. The details of this will be up on the main fundraiser. 

I am extremely grateful to everyone who has participated in this journey, and hope that you can continue to at the very least keep sharing this fundraiser for her. Thank you, everyone. I am humbled by your generosity and kindness.


With love,

Anna
