Conservatives in particular have been having issues with fundraising site GoFundMe lately, as the site has changed its terms of service to justify pulling fundraisers for Christian bakery “Sweet Cakes by Melissa” and for the six Baltimore police officers charged in connection with the death of Freddie Gray.
Still, there’s no denying the site has done a lot of good, and Twitchy readers will be glad to know that a fundraiser for Twitchy favorite Mandy Nagy, also known as @Liberty_Chick, is going strong. Nagy, a writer for Legal Insurrection and Breitbart, suffered a massive stroke in September, and an update on her progress (along with a recent photo) was just posted today by her mother.
Mandy is slowly walking on her own with a walker and becoming more independent as she learns again how to do everyday tasks. And, once she learns it, she remembers. She still cannot speak except for a few words and phrases, although she knows what she wants to say – she just can’t say it. I am working with her to get her to stop pointing and drawing pictures in the air and speak the words she’s trying to say. She goes to physical, speech and occupational therapy about 2-3 days a week. But I also work with her. I can see from her eyes and the level of her alertness that she is improving.
Here’s a direct link to her GoFundMe page.
