STABBING victim Stella Trevisani (27) is “out of the woods” and has begun rehabilitation at Fiona Stanley Hospital, according her boyfriend Billie-Joe Birch.

Speaking at a crime forum held in East Perth on Wednesday night , Mr Birch said Ms Trevisani was facing three months off her waitressing job after the attack.

Ms Trevisani was stabbed five times outside Claisebrook train station on March 17.

Police have charged a 15-year-old boy, who allegedly demanded Ms Trevisani’s phone before stabbing her and fleeing.

“Stella will be in the rehabilitation ward for a few weeks until the splints come out and she has some mobility in her hands,” Mr Birch said.

“She has one good limb out of four and needs things to be done for her.

“Mentally it’s going to be a bit of a tough road.”

He said with damage done to the tendons in her arms, it would be months before she could go back to her job again.

Mr Birch said a GoFundMe page set up to alleviate medical bills and wage loss, which has raised almost $19,000, would soon be closed.
