    This Student is exaggerating and lying and thought about that nice story to chase her 15 min of fame

    Not mentioning that her boyfriend asked for donations to help her recover on her websites before people start commenting on that donation request saying she made that story up to get money and donation and i still have that page open on my blackberry but then she deleted hat donation page and posted a thank you page
