More Info

A little more than two years ago while staying with her family in a country outside the US she was violently assaulted physically and sexually for belonging to LGBT community. The attack resulted in a severe trauma to the facial bones which would not grow back together properly, having formed a deformity. Because of the complexity of the trauma only the most skilled surgeon can perform the required surgery without further damage so she can regain her ability to eat without excruciating pain and to function in society. We are seeking the help of compassionate people to restore the unjustly violated life of this innocent girl with a beautiful heart.

Prior to the violent assault that destroyed her life, she was healthy, strong, and energetic, and she hasn't lost hope that she can regain her health and her life.

We are a small group of friends who know this girl, her unending kindness, and the care she always expresses in everything she does. Even in her present state she always goes out of her way, even beyond her natural capabilities and limitations to help anything and anybody when there is a need for it. We have complete confidence that helping Bella Marianne would be helping the world as she is one of those people who were born to diminish the pain in the world if she is allowed to live herself.

The photo you see was taken a few months before the assault.

All together, the cost of the surgeon’s and the hospital’s fees, the new orthodontics, soft-tissue readjustment, and after care would amount to $140,000. All the surgical quotes, estimates and diagnoses can be verified and provided to kind donors and patrons. Without your help Bella Marianne will not be able to have this surgery. And it means her life. We don’t know if you can help, but if you do, you would truly and forever be an Angel for Bella Marianne, saving her life by restoring her ability to function and enjoy living. Thank you for taking the time to read her story.
