My husband Keith and I started this page for our niece Tiana Carruthers Tiana was the first victim and one of two survivors from the Kalamazoo mass shooting on Saturday, February 20, 2016 as shown in the link above. Tiana has a long recovery ahead of her and your donations will help pay for medical expenses during her recovery process so we humbly ask you for support. All donations are GREATLY APPRECIATED. NOTHING IS TOO SMALL.
Tianna has asked me to update you all on her progress. It's been a year since the shooting and within that year she has made great progress. Tiana has gone from a wheelchair being unable to walk to a walker to a cane to being able to walk on her own but still with a limp.
Tiana does have limitations right now with her range of motion in her right arm and in her legs. She is working hard at her physical therapy like it's a full-time job. She does have check-ups every 3 months because of the bullet that is lodged in her liver.
We just really wanted to share with all of her supporters what progress she has made in this year and how strong she really is.
We continue to thank you all for your support and prayers and we ask that you continue to support and pray for Tiana.
Tiana is so AMAZED and SO GREATFUL for EVERY bit of love and support she has received. There are no words that can express the love and gratitude that she is feeling.
