Janelle Dunnaway's Medical Fund

Janelle Dunnaway was trying to enjoy a concert at the Roxy in Denver, Colorodo on 7/21/17, and was violently struck by a fellow concert-goer, which resulted in multiple skull fractures, nasal fractures and the loss of several front teeth. She needs three more reconstructive surgeries over the next six months. The dental work alone will cost $21,049.00. We've updated the campaign to reflect the cost. (Please see the below for the quote from her oral surgeon.) 

Please share this campaign with your friends, and donate to support her.


"I spent the entire night in the ER, i still haven't slept. I bled for 12 hours straight, FOUR teeth. I can't close my mouth due to the one tooth that's still there being knocked so far back. And the other one that's there is chipped. They will probably both come out in time. One got lost in the venue. I caught one and they tried to stick it back in but it failed"

Update:

"I had my first round of surgery last night, there will be at least 3 more over the next 6 months. My skull is fractured in multiple places, up into my nose. There were pieces of bone scattered all over the place that I had to have drilled out. I had to have new gum tissue and bone grafted in over the entire area. They hammered the two teeth that are still in there into place and splinted them, but they are dead and will have to be removed later. I've never been in more pain in my life. The surgery was the most traumatic experience I've ever been through. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. I have some temporary fake teeth so thank god I can at least leave my house now. It's impossible for me to eat with the amount of pain I'm in right now..."

My name is Kristen and I am a member of Conquer Divide on Artery Recordings. Janelle is our friend and hairstylist for our music videos. I started this campaign to get her the help she needs paying for her surgeries, which will cost $21,049.00.  Her insurance is only covering $1,500 of this, and the rest is out of pocket expenses. All proceeds will go to Janelle Dunnaway to cover these costs.
