A fund to assist with expenses has been opened at First State Bank in Union City and in Jackson at Madison County Bank for Belinda Jones. Ms. Jones was attacked and doused in alcohol before being set on fire in a domestic assault. She suffered third-degree burns over 50 percent of her body and is hospitalized at Regional Medical Center (The Med) in Memphis, where she is still dependent on a ventilator. Doctors say she will have a very length recovery time.
The 24-year-old mother, who is related to the Cox and Boykin families in Union City, has two young children and desperately needs assistance with medical and living expenses.
Donations locally may be made in her name to the account. Donations at the Madison County bank may be made to the Mary Cox account for benefit of Belinda Jones.
