Stacey Marie Piotrowski, a 28-year-old Athens artist, photographer and musician, was hit by a drunk driver around 10:30pm a week ago on Talmadge Avenue. She remains hospitalized with serious injury to her head and legs.
Known in various circles in Athens as a kind and compassionate person, as well as an interesting and talented photographer, Stacey-Marie has friends who have set up a fund to help defer her medical bills. Thus far, a funding raising website says $5,000 is needed because she has no insurance and little savings.
