Hi my name is LaShandra and I am the mother of my 12-year old son who was shot in the back of his neck on 10/19/22 due to senseless gun violence. I am asking for donations as we have to now figure costs of medical expenses and hotel arrangements due to this drastic change in our lives. This is a big change for us & we are in for a long road of recovery. Anything helps!!
