Andrea Castilla lost her life in the Las Vegas tragedy.  She was there celebrating her 28th Birthday. She was holding hands with her sister watching the band when they heard “Duck” and shots being fired. Sadly, Andrea was shot in the head. Her boyfriend, Derek Miller, her sister, Athena,  and Athena's fiancé, Shane Armstrong,  immediately tried carrying her to safety dodging bullets along the way. They continued to shield her as bullets rang out around them. With help of others they carried her over a fence - and got her to the highway where they flagged down a passing motorist who took them to the hospital in the back of his truck. They waited 7 hours in the emergency room - hospital staff telling them that she was in surgery etc...only to be told that she passed away upon admittance. They had confused her with another patient. With the chaos and no ID, she was lost in the system. The family provided her ID and Facebook photos and she was confirmed deceased.

These funds will be used for her memorial service, to allow her family to stay in Las Vegas until her body is released, to help the family with counseling and give them time to grieve.  

I am Andrea's aunt.  Her father, Gus, is my brother and these funds will go directly to her memorial service and to the Castilla family.
