Nearly $15,000 in private donations has been raised for Carol Guscott, the Jamaican woman disfigured by an attacker with battery acid, to pay for her stay in Orange County as she undergoes several plastic surgeries. Guscott, 36, who had the first in a series of facial operations in January, says she is grateful for the outpouring of support. "I have prayed a lot for some help.

That was only the beginning of her agony. Soon, her family, friends and neighbors, who could not bear to look at her deformed face and vacant eyes, abandoned her.
