Trent Holst Recovery and Christmas

On December 22nd a burglary occured at Trents home while he was sleeping. After stealing all of there Christmas items, some other items, the burglarer opened the door and woke Trent from his sleep. Trent charged at him and the man fired. Two bullets are still lodged in Trent, one in his back and the other about a millimeter from his spine. His parents were staying with him when this happened and were woke by the gunfire. Trent was in ICU, luckily not paralyzed but still in bad shape. One bullet went through his lung, collapsing it. Although material things aren't what you think about when things like this happen, we would like to raise some money to help with his Christmas and recovery. He is a union worker and had just started back to work. He is a good kid and has donated a lot of time to other charity events along with always being there for his friends and family. If you can please share and spread the word. I hope the man is brought to justice soon.
