*** I have updated this travel page as Kodi will be coming back and forth from Montana to be here with his family and mother, then back down to Salt lake to be with his brother over the next few months. Travel is not cheap, especially for this long and these circumstances. Extra funds will be put towards the care of Julie, as we will be caring for her when she has recovered enough to leave the hospital. ***
-We need help covering travel costs and hotel stay for Salt Lake City for the next few months, after the shooting on March 14th which has Casey Blanchard (Kodi Blanchard’s brother) in critical condition undergoing multiple surgeries. Their mother is awake now and talking, Kodi needs to be with his brother at this time during surgeries and recovery.
On the night of March 14th, a friends life was taken and two family members life’s were on the line after a shooting that occurred after Julie, came to pick up her son Casey and his best friend Shelley. The shooter followed them, flashing his lights at them. They pulled over and as Casey was getting out to see if he was alright, the man fired his AR, striking Casey multiple, multiple times. Then putting more rounds into the back of the truck, Shelley did not make it and Julie was shot multiple times. Casey has been life flighted to Salt Lake City which he will reside for the next few months. Julie is currently still in Missoula, and could still be flighted to Salt Lake for surgery as well. Please continue to pray for this family.
