Help Makayla & Canisha Recover & Heal

Makayla (12) & Canisha (29) were both victims of a shooting in Bloomington, MN on August 30, 2020. They were in the process of moving out of their house late Sunday night when  their neighbor fired rounds at members of the family. 

Makayla is currently in critical condition. She was holding her 1-year-old niece, Winter, when she was shot. She was found cradling Winter, who's life she saved. She was shot somewhere in the back of the head. During a CT Scan they found her skull had been fractured, and have removed a piece of her skull to allow room for it to swell. She is currently on a respirator, with a tube near her forehead to allow the blood to drain. It is unknown how long she will be in the hospital or if she will ever fully recover. The doctors predict she will have a long road to recovery. She will be in the hospital for at least 2-3 months with the piece of her skull removed, then even longer once it is put back in place, then she will need more care after that. It will be a long road to recovery. Please pray for her full recovery. 

Canisha is currently in stable condition. She was shot 3 times - once in her leg, left hip and once in her right ankle. Her hip and ankle were both shattered and broken. It's unknown how long she will be in the hospital and recovering. Canisha is a single mother to her one-year-old daughter, Winter, who is her entire world. Canisha will be out of work for an extended period of time. She will need help caring for Winter during this recovery process, and the following months. Please pray for her full recovery. 

Mildred is both the girls mothers. She was also shot at but was miraculously unharmed. She will be out of work helping both daughters during this road to recovery and healing.

Please help with anything you can, no amount is too small. This money will be used for the medical bills that continue to add up, replenish living wages for being out of work for Canisha and Mildred, and any other costs that come up during this time.
