Chris Mintz - UCC Shooting Survivor

Yesterday my cousin Chris Mintz was shot 7 times while trying to protect others from the gunman at Umpqua Community College.

He is a father, a veteran, a student, and now he's a hero.

During the shooting both of his legs were broken and he is going to have to go through a ton of physical therapy.

While Chris is not the type of person to ask for it, he is going to need all of the help he can get while he recovers!

Myself and many family members have been swamped with requests for us to setup a gofundme page, so this is us fulfilling that request and we appreciate your concerns and assistance.

Thank You,
Family of Chris Mintz

Update -

GoFundMe is requesting further information from me in this campaign for Chris's protection.

My name is Derek Bourgeois, and Chris is my cousin. We both grew up in Randleman, NC together.

The funds are going to be sent directly to Chris to assist with his recovery (medical bills, paying his bills while he out of work, childcare for his son, etc).
