Christy Mack Gets Support From Dentist After AttackBy: Amanda Crum - August 15, 2014
Christy Mack, the model and porn star who says she was mercilessly beaten recently by her ex boyfriend, is gaining support from total strangers this week after photos of her ravaged face were shared online.
Mack’s attacker, MMA fighter War Machine, is now on the run and is being sought by Dog the Bounty Hunter, but for now Mack is focusing on recovery. She suffered 18 broken bones around her eyes, a broken nose, several broken teeth, a broken rib, and a ruptured liver and reportedly said she thought he was going to kill her.
Several of Christy’s friends have set up a crowdfunding account for her medical bills, and with 89 days left to go they have already raised $63,000. She also has support from Dr. Nicholas Toscano, who says he will repair her teeth free of charge.
“I’ve worked with the victims of hate crimes, with battered women, with gay advocacy groups. I was in the Navy for 13 years so I’ve always been about helping people. I saw her story and felt really bad about what she went through and felt something to had be done. I know he [allegedly] beat and abused her pretty bad. I don’t care what the occurrence is; you just don’t put your hands on a woman. I can help, and and it’s the right thing to do for her and for battered women elsewhere. People should always try to help whenever possible,” Toscano said.
The extensive repairs needed may have cost upwards of $75,000 had Dr. Toscano not stepped in.
There are currently several rewards set up for information leading to the arrest of War Machine, including one from Pawn Stars’ Corey Harrison for $10,000.
