LV Shooting Victim - Heroic Fireman

My name is Mark and writing this on behalf of my friend Mike Kordich. He is a firefighter on a hot shot fire crew in SoCal. He was enjoying a weekend with two other firefighters attending the Route 91 country music festival in Las Vegas. When the shooting began, Mike observed a victim of the shooting go down in front of him with a life threatening injury. Instead of fleeing from danger Mike ran towards it and this victim. Mike immediately reverted back to his medical training by giving this victim several rounds of CPR while bullets impacted the ground around him. Mike continued giving this victim aid until he himself was shot in his right arm. Mike lost the function of his arm and couldn't continue CPR. Mike later underwent surgery for his gunshot wound. The doctors have told him he may need additional surgeries and eventually physical therapy. Because of Mikes line of work, using hand tools, and fighting wild land fires he may be out of work for some time. As his long time friend I am asking for donations to help him in his recovery & to assist with medical expenses.
