Help us help Lisa

I find it unbelievable that after another five months, Lisa is still without the proper financial support to help her through her PTSD.

I began a fundraising campaign for Lisa Jennings in November.  At that time we were able to get her through the winter months thanks to the generosity of many people.

I find it unbelievable that after another five months, Lisa is still without the proper financial support to help her through her PTSD, which gripped her after 24 years on the job.

As many of you will have noticed in the recent articles on Lisa, she has found solace and strength in her predicament by reaching out to others in her field that are suffering from work-related PTSD and is focusing at a “grass roots” level to bring about change to the legislation to ensure that no other first responder ever has to go through the indignities and tribulations that she has had and continues to endure.

Please join me in sharing her story on gofundme so that we can generate enough financial support for her (no amount is too small) to survive until the appeal she had to file with Worksafe goes through in July. Her full story is shared on the gofundme website (gofundme.com/gq0k7w).
