My name is Cassandra Baker-Fielder, CEO of Awesome.
A.W.E.S.O.M. E, which stands for Abused Women Elevated Sherell’s Ongoing Memory Echoed a mother whose daughter lost her life in an abusive relationship. I thank you with an unmeasurable amount of thanks. To lose a child is very painful for a mother, or any parent, especially when you raised your child to be loving, positive, respectful, helpful to others and to have morals. It brings a smile to your face when your child grows up implementing those positive traits which you instilled in her and then teaches those same values to her daughter. What crushes a mother, is when someone comes along and unjustly takes her child’s life. My first born child, Sherell Deanna Baker, at the young age of 26 was shot and killed at the hands of her abuser, in front of her 4 year old daughter Zoey. She has to live with this tragedy for the rest of her life. My daughter was killed in cold blood by a monster, a monster who only received seven months in the County Prison. Sadly, he also had a chance to verbally abuse and intimidate my granddaughter, Zoey, before he took her mother’s life. This is a brief story of my daughter Sherell. I’m now responsible with raising my granddaughter, one of the sweetest and smartest little girls you could ever meet, and I’m blessed to have her, but every day I’m reminded of the fact that I lost my daughter. I’m a firm believer that God works in mysterious ways and his wisdom is beyond our comprehension. I met a man who I shared Sherell’s story with, and we became good friends; he encouraged me to write a biography about my daughter. I’m currently finishing up the book and will keep you all informed when it’s ready to be published. He also strongly encouraged me to start a nonprofit organization for abused women. Together we sought information on how to start and run a nonprofit organization, and came up with the name Awesome. I’m happy to say that man is now my husband and best friend. He’s also the Co-founder/Vice President of A. W. E. S. O. M. E. Our mission is to rescue, assist, educate, motivate and elevate abused women, and women in general, worldwide, in any helpful way possible. We welcome all of you with open arms.
We ask you to donate to our project, so that we can purchase a building where we can house abused women. No amount given is too small. Your time, energy, etc. is greatly appreciated and will not go unnoticed. I/We can do it, and help A. W. E. S. O. M. E. Elevate Women Worldwide.
