Following the vicious beating which Christy Mack sustained on August 8 — allegedly at the hands of MMA fighter ex-boyfriend War Machine — she is looking at upwards of $100,000 in facial reconstruction surgery. Here’s how you can help.
Christy Mack, 23, is still in the hospital recovering from a myriad of injuries which will cost her over $100,000 in hospital bills, allegedly thanks to her MMA fighter ex-boyfriend War Machine, 32, who is still on the run from authorities. As she recovers, her “horrified” friends are there to help, and a co-worker of Christy’s in the adult film industry, Kendall Karson, 26, revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY just how you can help.
Christy Mack: Donate To Support Her Recovery From Attack, Says Kendall Karson
Fans and well wishers looking to support Christy may go to her GiveForward page, Kendall told HollywoodLife.com in an interview. Kendall is the one who started the fund for Christy, and you “can donate funds for any out-of-pocket expenses, time off for work, therapy, and expenses that will not be covered by insurance.
“Fans can send cards and gifts — but no flowers — to:

Kendall Karson: ‘Encouraging Words Are Always Appreciated’ By Christy Mack
Furthermore, Christy has unfortunately been receiving her fair share of negativity via Twitter as she recovers from this traumatic event, so “Encouraging words are always appreciated!” Kendall told us. All of the kind and supportive tweets that have been sent to Christy so far have really “meant a lot,” so keep ’em coming! Christy’s Twitter can be found here.
“When [Christy] posted the pics and story shortly after, I was horrified at what I saw and the gruesome details,” Kendall revealed. “I immediately went to GiveForward and set the fundraiser up for her since I have the experience.
“I would want the same to be done for me, it is just the right thing to do. I want to help the family by taking that stress and burden off of their shoulders.”
“Within the first eight hours we broke the goal of $10,000 that I originally set. Within 24 hours we had broke $28,000, and currently, we are over $63,000. Brazzers [one of Christy’s employers] donated $10,000 alone.”
War Machine Being Hunted Down By Dog The Bounty Hunter
We’re so glad that Christy is being supported by so many — by friends, co-workers, family, and even strangers alike. As for what’s being done to catch War Machine and bring him to justice for his alleged crime? “Dog The Bounty Hunter has been an amazing blessing in trying to catch War Machine.
“He has been very public and has gone on numerous shows and web sites. He has been really amazing and on top of the case, and I personally want to thank him for all that he is doing, still.”
Christy has even reached out to Kendall and expressed her gratitude for everything that everyone has been doing to support her, so let’s not stop now. Domestic violence is a serious issue which often does not get the attention it deserves — Christy wrote in her statement that she believed that War Machine was going to kill her.
Now, she’ll be facing an unimaginable amount of medical expenses and physical and emotional therapy moving forward. Celebrity dentist Dr. Nicholas Toscano has offered to fix Christy’s teeth for free, which he has said would have otherwise cost $70,000 and may take as long as a year to fully repair due to the extensive trauma that she sustained.
Even if you can’t spare a few dollars for Christy’s GiveForward page, be sure to send her some encouraging tweets or messages — she will certainly need them as she recovers.
If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233; operators are standing by 24/7.
