Tampa, FL -There is afundraiserSaturday for Queena, the young woman left with permanent disabilities after she was attacked outside the Bloomingdale Library.

We've been following Queena's story since 2008. That's when she was ambushed while dropping off books in the library drop box at night. Her attacker raped, beat and left her for dead. Since then she requires around-the-clock care. She attends intense physical therapy in hopes she'll talk, walk, see and someday be able to feed herself on her own.
