Town Hall Meeting Calls For 'A New Roseland', Increased Access To Health Care (VIDEO)

Jessicia Morris (pictured right) said if she hadn’t been able to go to Roseland Community Hospital for medical treatment when she was shot in 2010, she probably would have lost her leg — or worse.

“Doctors said I made it to the hospital just in time,” said the 21 year–old former gang member who was shot in the knee at the age of 17. “My knee-cap was shattered and I lost a lot of blood. They said I was about to lose my leg, or I wouldn’t have been able to walk again.”

Morris was born and raised in Chicago’s often embattled Far South Side neighborhood of Roseland, and said she joined the Black Disciples gang at the age of 13.

“All we see out here is violence,” she said. “I didn’t know I could do anything else.”
