Queena's Story


Back in 2008, Queena was a vibrant eighteen-year-old with her whole life ahead of her. That changed the night she was brutally raped, beaten, and left for dead after dropping books off at the library. The attack left her blind and unable to walk or talk, requiring around-the-clock care.

To get a true feel for her story, please take a moment to watch this video:


This April will mark not only the seventh year since Queena’s attack, but also her twenty-fifth birthday. Now, she can communicate by widening her eyes, smiling, and clenching her fists. Every day, she fights her way through intensive, sometimes experimental therapies, that add up to over $70,000 a year. We’d like to ease her family’s financial burden however we can. It’s our chance to change a real life “New Adult” story
