The 12-year-old Wisconsin girl who was stabbed 19 times by her two friends for mythical demon Slenderman got an unexpected gift as she recovers.
Originally, her family asked that people send her homemade purple hearts to decorate her room and lift her spirits as she heals, but she recently received an actual U.S. military Purple Heart medal.
"Our little girl has received thousands of purple hearts from numerous countries and from every state in the United States," her family said in a statement. "Recently, she received a very heartfelt and special gift -- a military Purple Heart, given anonymously. With it was a card that read, 'The Only Heart I Could Find -- Be Strong.'"
We're sure the victim, who was attacked by two of her classmates in the woods after a sleepover, was thrilled to get such a special gift. Supporters have also raised more than $50,000 in donations to help offset her medical expenses.
