Family and friends of a 24-year-old woman fighting for her life have taken to the Internet to raise awareness and money for the victim and her son.

Catherine Salvi, 24, is in critical condition with severe brain damage after her live-in boyfriend, 21-year-old Emmanuel Algaria, allegedly assaulted her.

He was arrested back on December 14 and faces felony charges. He is being held at the ACI.

The money raised on www.gofundme.com/TheCatherineSalviFund will go towards Catherine's medical costs, bills, and care for her 2-year-old son.
