Charlene Slaugh and James Slaugh were shot in the horrible hate attack at Club Q, an LGBTQ club in Colorado Springs.
Charlene was shot in the abdomen. They reinflated her collapsed left lung and sent her to surgery. She’s packed with military gauze for now and stable, but they identified 13 holes so far from one or more bullets. She is recovering from the first of several surgeries and has a long recovery ahead. Mark was able to visit her Sunday night.
James was shot in the shoulder and is expected to recover. He will undergo shoulder surgery at midnight Sunday. His partner was shot in the leg and is also expected to fully recover. James and his partner met at Club Q and always considered it a safe space.
Charlene loves hiking in the mountains with her dog. Her brother James wanted to cheer her up after a recent breakup and on the one-year anniversary of their mother's death from Covid. They went out for a fun night of dancing at Club Q. They were preparing to leave when shots were fired.
The money will be delivered to their brother Mark Slaugh. It is hosted by Mark's friend and colleague, Summer Westerbur.
