Everyone is crying their heart out at this mother’s heartbreaking Facebook post [VIDEO]

A heartbreaking video by the mother of 19-year-old Georgia Fairthorne is moving people to tears across the country, and might just help saves the lives of others.

Georgia had just returned from a family holiday and was out in the street on her skateboard. A wheel of the board caught on a stone and Georgia took a tumble which might normally have ended in a scuffed knee or twisted ankle. Instead, it ended in a traumatic brain injury. Georgia, like so many of us, wasn’t wearing a helmet and hit the hard surface head first. She began to fit, and is now fighting for her life in hospital.

Georgia’s mother took to Facebook to plea for other parents to ensure their children wear safety helmets when cycling, skateboarding, or engaging in similar types of outdoor activities. The post has since been seen nearly a million times, and a crowdfunding campaign set up to ease the financial strain of caring for Georgia has already raised nearly £1,500.

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

* Advert free reading experience
* Quarterly group video call with the Editor-in-Chief
* Behind the scenes monthly e-newsletter
* 20% discount in our shop

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?
