Wow, this is truly sad to read. Being in a hospital for at least two weeks and no friends or family comes to see you? Her life will be changed forever and could quite possibly face it alone. An empty feeling beyond words that nobody should have to feel.

she might be homeless and not have family, she was in a coma for two weeks, if she had loved ones they would have filed a missing persons report, or maybe she's not from the area


Where's her picture? the picture on the article is small so they hoping someone screenshot it and post it 🤦🏾‍♀️
