She sustained life threatening injuries, has undergone multiple extensive surgeries, and is currently on life support," the update read. "We are all devastated, in shock, at this intensely difficult time."

In the days since her hospitalization, Laveorck has been surrounded by support, with messages on the GoFundMe campaign reading, "Stay strong and take care, Mamie" and "Sending Mamie and all of you our love and strength."

A devastating time for all who care for Mamie. Please help if you can. They need all the support they can get to make it through this."
