BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A woman who was badly burned outside a Tim Hortons in the City of Tonawanda has been released from the hospital.

According to a Facebook post, 25-year-old Jessica Cameron was discharged from ECMC Wednesday.

"We have come far enough in her recovery that she can come home and receive wound care here. She will be doing outpatient Occupational therapy, and working on reuniting our family. We appretiate all of your prayers and positive energy" the Facebook post reads.

The post has been shared over 250 times and has close to 600 comments.

Jonathan White is accused of setting Cameron on fire back in December. Prosecutors say White called Cameron to a secluded area outside the Tim Hortons, where she worked, and doused her with a flammable liquid and set her on fire.

White was denied bail in March.

7 Eyewitness News has learned a fundraiser will be held in conjunction with Cameron's family on Sunday April 28th at 1 p.m. at the Buffalo Pizza and Ale House/Rockstarz at 603 Dingens Street, Cheektowaga.
