Help Emily With Her Medical Bills

$26,726 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 1,170 people in 27 months
Emily is a 22 year old and from Salt Lake City. She went to go see one of her favorite bands at a local venue. Around the middle of the show, Emily was standing on the out side of a mosh pit when a man wearing steel toe boots went to "crowd kill" and round house kicked her in the jaw. She was immediately knocked unconscious and carried out by a friend and strangers. She was taken to the hospital and put into emergency care. Four MRI's were taken and a team of neurologists found that she had brain bleeding along side her broken jaw. After the bleeding stopped and they subdued her pain, they took her in to the Ortho/Trauma ICU. After two more days, she had A 6 hour reconstructive surgery implanting 4 metal plates to reconnect her jaw to he face. After the surgery we found out that her jaw was hit so hard on one side that it broke the other side free from the muscle tissue and the only thing keeping in her face was her skin. She spent a total of 6 days in the ICU and will have 3 month recovery. Her jaw is wired shut for the next two weeks and she will be unable to work. Medical costs will be very high. Any support or donations are greatly appreciated. Also, Emily went to a show to have fun and to support a band she loves. No one should ever leave a show in this condition, no matter what kind of music you are going to support. Have fun out there but please, not in such an inconsiderate and violent way. Please be mindful. My name is karlee, she is my little sister. We live in salt lake with our parents Anne and Tom Hoffman. All of the funds will be going straight to her medical bills

Doesn't the "local venue" whoever it is, have insurance to cover this? I know most places do.

Steel toe boots to crowd kill? Might as well bring a shotgun what the fuck.

I hope you get all the help you need and your recovery is speedy. This should never happen at a show, its suppose to be a safe space. I hope the person responsible has learnt from his actions!!

Utah's office of Crime Victims Reparations will help with lost wages and some rent and utilities so this money can help pay medical expenses., they should also help with those as well but I am not sure how much. I know that her medical expenses are going to be much more than this. I had my entire left side of my face broken after leaving the Depot in an unprovoked attack and they helped me tremendously.

I have no money myself I really don't however I send all my support and hope you are well soon. Violence at gigs shouldn't happen and I hope the prick who roundhoused her has been arrested and charged with GBH.

@lori maness, Kilby Court contributed $1k to this GoFundMe, so I think that answers your question. So no, it appears they probably aren't insured for that kind of incident.

@danial swan. Its hardcore, its been around for decades. None of the bs the internet wants you to believe. The moral of the story, dont be a dick crowd killing random people and dont wear steal toe boots to shows. This is hardcore we are talking about here, no one deserves this. Yes, you go in there knowing the risks, but dont do shit that injure a person like this. https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=u-AH8H8ZZbE

I am sure as you all are asking they would love to find him... The guy took off running before most people even understood what was truly going on... A Crowded show no one knew what had happened until after it already happened,,, No defense for that sick piece of shit WHAT SO EVER!!!! just saying people assuming that no one cares enough to do anything to the dude is waaaaaay false.... Gotta figure out who it was ... and unless there was a camera on him at that exact moment its not that easy... But Ill be the first to round up a man hunt ya'll down??? Rest easy pretty girl and know that you have a million people on your side!!!!
