Another Victim of Senseless Violence

Copied from another blogger:

Roller derby is one big family. No matter where you live or who you play for, we help out our own in their most troubled times.

Lori, aka Lmbr Timber Onu #88 of Emerald Coast Roller Derby, was the victim of a horrific domestic violence attack on Easter Sunday. She remains hospitalized with serious injuries from being kicked repeatedly in the face.

Not only is Lori a derby girl, but she served in the US Air Force and was deployed to Saudia Arabia during Operation Southern Watch while protecting the then “No Fly Zone” over Iraq.

Lori is now a full-time student pursuing a master’s in social work and is a single mother of 2 daughters. She now needs our help to cover the medical expenses from emergent care and reconstructive surgery.

Whether you want to support someone who served our country, help out a fellow derby girl, or simply take some direct action in the fight against domestic violence, please donate.
