How You Can Help Angela Gabriel

Mother of 4, Paralyzed after Domestic Violence Attack

Message taken from the "Standing Tall for Angela" YouCaring page:

Angela Gabriel is most importantly a MOTHER, a SINGLE mother, raising four beautiful children. Angela's four children are 21, 9, 6, and an 18 month old Downs syndrome child. 

She is also a Veteran, a Volunteer and a local Keller Williams Realtor. Angela volunteers and in involved in her children's schools, her ministry and Volunteers to bring awareness to Downs Syndrome.

She is now also a victim of domestic violence. On February 22, 2017, Angela was shot four times, leaving her paralyzed from the chest down. 

Her family and friends are thankful she is a ALIVE. The Medical staff, family and friends also say it is a Miracle she is alive. 

She's in good spirits and feels blessed to be loved by so many people. She is still in a lot of pain yet her focus is on her children and all of their futures. Her road to recovery will be a long and arduous one and the bills are already coming. Her recovery and rehabilitation will span years. She will have to learn to function in a whole new manner and as a new person. 

When we tell you she's an amazing and strong woman -  that is an understatement! When Angela was first shot, her mindset and thoughts were that she had to stay alive! She told herself to keep breathing and that she had to live for her kids. 

Angela desperately needs our help! We want to ask each of you to pray and search your heart and help us support her. As you know if a Realtor doesn't work, they do not get paid. We would love for each person to donate anything you can immediate to help with her current bills and living expenses! If you can only give $5, everything counts! Let's pull together as a local community and help her as much as we possibly can!
