During the accident, both of Masafilo's legs were broken and many of her teeth were knocked out or badly chipped, Moreno said. In her current state, she is unable to work, and according to Moreno, she is likely to begin having trouble with her monthly bills.
In an effort to help her friend, Moreno has started a fund for Masafilo at a local branch of Wells Fargo. Anybody can donate by going into a Wells Fargo branch and asking to donate to the Gloria Masafilo Fund, according to a representative with the bank.
Masafilo is in high spirits, even in the face of such a harrowing event, according to Moreno.
