She's Still Smiling

She's Still Smiling

From Cadance Ries

I'm raising money for a survivor of domestic violence. She is faced with overwhelming physical, mental, and emotional damages. This will help repair her missing/ damaged teeth and empower her to heal and start anew.

What I have to say is important but intense. Crisis can come at any point and can happen to anyone, including your friends and family. I have a friend who has been living in a horror for months and is lucky to have made it this far alive. 1 in 4 women are victims of intimate partner violence, and victims are 75% less likely to die if they do not leave their abuser. It took astronomical strength, courage, and will to even risk leaving her partner, but she survived and escaped. She has her life, but has multiple fractures in her ankle, ribs, and ear. She may never hear out of her ear again. Now she heals with minimal support while settling back at home, caring for her parents and pets, processing her trauma, and much more. The only time I saw her spirit falter was when we ate together, and she had to take out her retainer. In the past months, she has lost and damaged multiple teeth. I am raising money to raise this woman up and give her a new smile. Despite all she has faced, she deserves the confidence to show the world that She's Still Smiling. Please donate, share, and educate yourself on domestic violence.
