Please Help Kelsi

Please help my dear friend Kelsi, she and her friend Chelsea were both shot at the Route 91 harvest Festival on Oct 1st. Kelsi and her friends were on a first time girls trip to Las Vegas attending the festival, having the time of their lives, never thinking it would change their lives forever. Kelsi was struck in the left arm and her friend, Chelsea, in the left eye. Kelsi was able to remain calm enough and think to push her severally wounded friend over a fence so that she could get help first. Kelsi then made her way to another area to get an Uber to nearby Sunrise Hospital. Kelsi had surgery Monday afternoon to remove the bullet fragments from her arm. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing Kelsi is. She is finishing school to be a teacher where her little sister attends, she loves her family more than anything, and she always there for those in need of her help. She is the type of woman I hope my daughter will grow up to be like. She has endured more terror than any person should ever have to and the last thing I want her to worry about is how she will make her car payment or any other monthly bills. I want her to be able to get all of the help she needs to get past this and help others heal. If you can spare just $10 I would greatly appreciate it. She is facing huge medical bills and obviously was not planning for this.
