THE STORY:

Heather Says: Hey...I was just wanting to thank you all for your support. You don't know how much it means to me to know that I've got people from everywhere in the United States that care so much. Just to let everyone know, this isn't a scam fundraiser. I've verified my account with Facebook so people would know that it really is me . I've updated my profile now that I don't have to really hide my full name or be too scared to put a lot of my info on here.

So yes, this is Heather and your support goes directly to me.

************************************************************************************************

This is a page to offer support and encouragement to a brave lady named Heather. Heather is a woman in West Virginia struggling to overcome poverty and health issues. In late July, Heather posted an ad for escort services online, and made a date with a man who turned out to be a serial killer, Neal Falls.

When Heather answered the door, Falls, armed with a gun, asked her: "Live or die?" Then he started choking her.

Heather said "I knew he was there to kill me. When he strangled me, I grabbed my rake, and when he laid the gun down to get the rake out of my hands, I grabbed the gun and shot behind me."

Police said: "It's likely that Mr. Falls is a serial killer," said Steve Cooper, Charleston Police Department Chief of Detectives.

"I believe she saved lives by shooting Mr. Falls, based on what he did to her, and based on the items found in his car."

Heather is rightfully lauded as a hero for stopping a serial killer in his path. She has gone through an intensely terrifying experience. She needs and deserves time and support to deal with the fear and trauma his attack inflicted.

Her hero status, unfortunately, does not come with any monetary compensation and provides no way for her to meet her financial and emotional needs after this experience. We need to step up and see to it that her needs are met at this difficult time.

Stigma and discrimination make sex workers the target of violence. Murderers such as Neal Falls are part of a long lineage of serial killers who have used this to get away with their brutal crimes. Heather stood up for herself and also prevented the murders of many more sex workers. We must stand with Heather and provide her the support she needs right now. Her act of self-preservation is in direct defiance to a culture that allows men like Neal Falls to get away with murder, when we support her now we are sending the signal that her life and the lives of all sex workers are valuable and important.

Please support Heather. Your donations will go directly to her account so she can have control over her finances and so that her housing and bills can be stabilized and she can process this experience. Donating $125 dollars pays Heather’s rent for a week and Donating $100 makes sure her electricity stays on for a month.

Every donation counts and anything helps, please share this if you don’t have the ability to donate. Please "Like" us on Facebook! Thank you!
