My name is Shumi and I am raising money to help me get back on my feet after suffering from a near-fatal carjacking incident that happened to me in Atlanta, Georgia on February 2, 2018. Late night on this day as I was driving home from work, my car was hit from behind as I was stopped at a traffic light. When I got out of my car to check the damage, two men got out from the car behind me and when I asked why they hit me, one man pulled a gun on me and shot me three times and then he and another man stole my car. The one man shot me in the neck, in the abdomen (bullet went through my stomach and my back), and in the lower back. I was sent to Grady Hospital by ambulance from the scene and was hospitalized for 18 days for the injuries I suffered. Since this incident, I have been undergoing medical care for my injuries and today, my doctors are recommending three necessary surgeries. Doctors will not support my going back to work with these necessary surgeries pending and so I have been challenged with covering my living expenses and in supporting my family. As you can imagine, that night in February 2018 changed my whole life as I was hurt physically, emotionally, and financially. I was blessed that my landlord waived rent for several months for me as I recovered from this trauma. Another issue is that is has impacted my ability to take care of my family back home in Ethiopia. And so I turn to you for your generous contributions to help me get back on my feet. I thank almighty God that I am able to tell my story and post this campaign.
