Ginger Sugerman is facing enormous challenges - and here's how you can help - 2018-03-20
Ginger Sugerman is making a trip today to her local hospital — which is nearly two hours away by car. She lives in Sylvania, Georgia, a rural spot in the road about halfway between Augusta and Savannah.
On Friday night, she had to be airlifted to a hospital in Savannah after she was shot in the face from close range with a 9mm handgun.
"I could feel my lip was hanging off but I didn't want to touch it," she tells us. She had turned her head just as her husband, Arnie Lerma, fired at her from close range, and the bullet tore through her lip and took out two teeth. She then ran away, and later that night Lerma used the gun to end his life.
