I'm setting up this fundraiser in honor of my mom, who is a domestic violence survivor. She is the strongest woman I know for overcoming all she has. Even after everything, she's still the most positive person I know. Always has a smile on her face. I thank God that she got away from her abuser when she did. It's not an easy thing to do but it's most definitely worth it. DV is very serious and happens more often than you'd think. If you are a victim, know that you are not alone. There is help. You are strong and you are worth it. You deserve to be happy and treated with respect.
