Bed for Dana
Dana, 25, has had a very rough start in life but is determined to build herself a brighter future.
As a child, Dana was sexually abused by a family member.
Over the years, Dana began suffering from anxiety attacks, panic disorder and flashbacks. She hung out with a dangerous crowd and began using drugs.
Eventually, she got help from Social Services and is now under the care of a social worker and a psychiatrist. She was diagnosed with complex PTSD and is slowly rebuilding her life.
Dana graduated high school, moved into an apartment with roommates and now works in a restaurant.
A few months ago, Dana’s apartment was infested with bedbugs. On her own, Dana managed to replace almost all of her belongings. The only item she is missing is a bed frame; at the moment, she is sleeping on a mattress on the floor.
This is a young woman who has made great strides in putting her past behind her and moving forward; she deserves our help in getting a decent night’s sleep.
