Waking Up After Being Shot

September 2, 2019

Greg continues his conversation with April Ballentine.  Friday we left off with her being shot 5 times in August 2013.  She has a powerful story of how she overcame Fear and, despite being paralyzed from the breast down, now works as an advocate for others of domestic violence at The Amanda Center.

The Amanda Center is a 24-hour point of contact for victims of domestic violence where they can file emergency petitions, speak to authorities and get connected with community resources.  It is located on the first floor of the Fayette County District Courthouse in downtown Lexington.

You or someone you know is a victim of domestic abuse, contact April Ballentine at (859) 252-1171 or aballentine@fayettesheriff.com
