It is really horrible. Brit is such a wonderful girl. She always lit up the room when she entered. I hope they find the person who did this and fry him/her. We are all pulling for you Brit!

Brittany was a bartender in this area, and one of the down sides of being a bar employee, is that rarely are you offered any sort of health insurance...such is the case with Brittany...She is a beautiful soul, and I cannot wait to give her another hug and tell her how truely happy I am to see her again...On to the importance of this bulletin...An account to help cover medical expenses has been established for Brittany at the Fifth Third Bank on Rollins Road in Round Lake Beach. Please, please, please...If you knew Brittany...DONATE! Even if you never met her...I can assure you that your god will shine apon you favorably, and your kharma will be returned. Thank you all, for participating, please forward this to everyone on you lists as well, she will need all the help we can give.

Here is all the info you need:
Fifth Third Bank, Rollins Road, Round Lake Beach - Brittany Rosentreter
Call them or stop in, and they will help you help her.

Thank you again, I love you all so much, and would do the same for every one of you,

Brittany is the kind of girl that just lit up your life with a smile whenever she is around. The fact that someone would hurt her just breaks my heart. All of us are hoping that she stays strong and knows that there are millions of people waiting to give her a hug when she gets out of the hospital!

Not only is there the account at 5/3 bank on Rollins Rd in Round Lake Beach, but there are also several benefits that are being set up in her honor. I just went to one yesterday, and AJ's (where she works) is setting up one for her too.

Keep your eyes out for a benefit and make sure that you tell everyone that you know about it!!! We want to make sure that Britt gets the best care possible so she can get well soon!

No one should have to go through something like this, BUT for all those that say you know her and are friends of hers then you know her lifestyle and should have seen something like this coming. I hope she comes through safe and with no problems and I also hope that those of you that know her will talk her into changing her ways.

i think it's sad when people throw fund raiser's for people they fire and accuse of stealing. the owner of sweet water's should be ashamed of themselve's we all know the reason britt left the water's and it was not a nice thing to do. now i hope you dont wanna profit from her injury that is just not right. i hope you do the right thing and take ALL PROFITS and send them to britt's family and show that your really not that heartless. with that said god bless britt and we all hope you get better real soon.

I never met Brittany myself, but I have heard many wonderful things about her. Even prior to this tradgedy, and I just want to say how very sorry I am for her. We have quite a few of the same friends, and all of us are praying for you!!! She is definetely not a person who deserved to have this happen.

YOU, are a disgrace to people everywhere!!! I know Brittany's lifestyle and her personal choices had NOTHING to do with it. This was a completely unforeseeable, horrible action that was taken out. Obviously, you are not a person who knows Brittany or has had the opportunity to get to know this wonderful woman for who she is!

I am alaramed at the reaction and comments to this tragic event, I don't know her and hope she is not the daughter of some of my friends, I was borna and raised in Round Lkae and try to kep up with the news from there, I just hope that Ya don't have to keep fighting and arguing, It's about Her, not your own feelings

Brittany is my brothers first grand-daughter. I know she is a wonderful, sweet and beautiful young woman. Even though this part of her family is so far away, our prayers and her strong "Rosentreter Spirit" will see her through. I am so grateful she has so many wonderful friends to help her in her time of need.... and her family in Idaho doesn't take kindly to any negativity of her character. God bless you Britt and our prayers are constant. We love you, Aunt Donna and family.

What a shame it is that ppl can't just send their condolances (sp?) and well wishes. There always has to be some attention getting ignorant person throwing there unneeded views out there. I for one only wish her well and hope she makes it threw this. I don't care what life style she lived and I know ppl that know her and if drinking and having fun and living your life or speaking your mind and standing your ground and not putting up w/ppl's crap deserve what happend to her alot of us would b in trouble! NO one deserves this and I hope they find this lower then dirt scum bag. I swear have some respect ppl if not for her then her family or atleast put themselfs in their shoes or just plain keep your mouth shut...

On that note get well Brittany you are in my prayers as well as sooo many others I don't know you but I still am only hoping the best for you!

Brittany is a good friend of mine and, to many others as well. She allways makes you smile whenever you see her, and is always happy to see you. If I were to ask her for a favor or just needed some cheering up, she would help me with whatever I needed. Whenever she was down, which was very rarley, I would be there to put a smile on her face.
