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.
A crowdfunding page has been set up to support the family as they take care of Georgia. You can make a donation by clicking here.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
