Centennial CO Domestic Violence Victims

On a Saturday morning, in the comfort of their own home, my son and his girlfriend had their
lives shattered in an instant.  A domestic
violence incident in the apartment next door
resulted in a bullet coming through the wall and hitting  Sally in the back of her head.  She was
standing in the kitchen making breakfast for 
their dog Niyah. 

Nick looked up to ask Sally what the noise was- only to see her crumpled body on the floor.

 He held her, blood flowing from her head as hescreamed for her to wake up.  He called 911 
and grabbed towels to wrap her head in until
the paramedics arrived. The Arapahoe Sheriff department acted swiftly and arrested the
shooter.  The officers took Nick to Littleton
Adventist Hospital where he waited for news on Sally.  

Since  that day, Nick has stayed by Sally’s
bedside only leaving to switch visitation with
her family.  Sally has undergone multiple
procedures to relieve pressure from her brain.

The 9mm bullet came through the apartment 
wall and shattered her skull- traversing across
Her brain to the front of her face.
There are good days and bad.  Nick has
identified a professional to help him deal with 
PTSD and the horrors that he sees when he
closes his eyes.  Sally remains in life support 
but has recently shown signs of movement & is beginning to respond to verbal commands
by lifting a finger or wiggling her toes.
Both have a lifetime of care and healing ahead 
of them. Life will never be the same.
It is far too early to understand the possible
outcome scenarios.  

Love, prayers and kindness from family, friends, the community and health care workers has 
been powerful.  We appreciate your donations 
as the one thing that we know is that
regardless of the outcome- this young couple
of six years will have a lifetime of needs. 

I am Nick's mother and can assure you that
there is no greater pain than not being able to 
take pain away from your child - even at the
age of 27.
thank you for helping to raise funds for their 
care, well-being, living and medical expenses.
