New, 63 comments

Ronny Ahmed's sister confirmed Monday that the youcares.com account to fund his medical care is legitimate.

The link to donate to Ahmed is http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-ronny-our-fellow-nole/267409

"Please help fellow Seminole Ronny Ahmed on his journey to recovery. Ronny was tragically shot three times on November 20th in front of Strozier Library on FSU's campus. He has been critically injured and remains in the ICU at Talahassee Memorial Hospital. Ronny was the first student shot, but despite his wounds was able to alert authorities in time for them to subdue his attacker. Ronny has sustained a serious injury to his spinal cord, in addition his arm and chest. He continues to hold strong in the ICU, but has been paralyzed from the waist down, and unfortunately is not expected to walk again.

We are trying to set up a medical trust to support the family with medical expenses and long term care. Please help with anything you can, and sincere thanks for your kindness, generosity, and prayers. "

It's great to see that $30,000 has already been raised, but I bet Seminoles will reach the goal well before the time is up.
