Thanks in advance for everyones prayers and support!
When we think about all that has happened and all that is lost, All that is forever changed...Our hearts are heavy, our eyes dripping tears.
However when we think about all of the wonderful people in this world who send their love and support our hearts are strengthened. We see that good can overcome evil. We can have joy in the little things again.
To all that sent us love and support thank you! Your kindness means more to us than you will ever know!
Through the blessings of our father in heaven Deserae is still with us and has made progress. We are so thankful for the hospital staff that have worked every minute of the last 19 days to keep Des alive and healing. Des is fighting so hard and we are grateful for the many small miracles along the way. Deserae has moved to the Neuro Trauma Unit. Her next steps include another surgery and extensive rehabilitation. Our sweet girl has been through so much as she battled for her life and this will be a battle she fights for a long time if not for the rest of her life. We are so grateful for all the support and prayers on Deserae's behalf. We would like to thank our community and people all over the world for their prayers, love and support. We ask that you please continue to pray for her, our family and the other families associated with this tragedy.
The Turner Family
The Utah victim reparations fund was established 30 years ago in Utah to pay all costs associated to a crime up to $50,000 in the case of homicide and $25,000 for all other violent crimes . The family should be advised to contact the state agency to get help with filling out the forms so that her costs can be paid by the fund . Reparations is funded through grants fines and court forfeitures
Deserae sending up big time prayers for a complete healing. Prayers that God will turn it around and whatever was meant for your harm turn it into good and give you a testimony to your strength, life, health and strong will. Lots of prayers going up on your behalf...
No matter the fund it is the purpose. Deserae deserves a chance at a normal life again.We had been misinformed regarding go fund me fees. I ask that you view them before donating. Yes if you go through the bank they will get the full donation amount. After helping hand out filers, it was such a humbling experience. Hugs from strangers and well wishes to her and her family from all over the valley. We really do have an amazing community and that can be felt wherever you go. The willingness to help where people can, it helps restore your faith in humanity. No i may not know the family presonaly, but I am grateful for all that have tried . So a big THANK YOU to everyone. Praying for a full recovery.

Deserae! I've heard you are interested in equestrian! I really hope you are still involved in the sport and if you are, I'd love to make/ give you a Custom show jacket made just for you! You are such an inspiration and deserve to shine bright! Please contact me if you are interested!
Contact the VA admintration hospital headquarters. I believe They've had an ongoing study in brain remapping after brain injury. They might be able to point you in the right direction.
I would first like to say Deserae your story breaks my heart. I will be praying for a complete, complication free recovery for you. I also pray these two boys are tried as adults and punished to the fullest extent of the law. My daughter's 19 year old boyfriend had a major stroke 2/6/17 and has extensive rehab. long into his future as well. My daughter also has a brain tumor that was diagnosed at 6 yo that she was probably born with. She also had to go through multiple surgeries and months of extensive rehab. Childhood Brain tumors are lifelong battles but she's up for the challenge. Ironically her tumor and Zach's stroke are in the same part of the brain. You can do this Beautiful!! One day at a time, one hour at a time. Whatever it takes. I also want to clarify something others have commented on here. GOFUNDME DOES TAKE 7.9% of ALL donations plus $0.30. IF POSSIBLE PLEASE DONATE TO THE BANK LISTED SO Deserae and her family get the full amount. The donor is not charged to donate. GoFund me takes the 7.9% of the donated amount plus $0.30 per donation prior to giving the money to the family. For example if you donate $5, she will get $4.30. If you donate $25, she'll get $22.72. To see how this all adds up, at present $52,055 has been donated, 7.9% of that is $4,112.35. So far 1,106 people have donated so multiply that by $0.30 and you get $330.60. So far Gofundme will take $4,442.95, and the family will get $47,612.05. They've said above that donations can also be made at any AMERICA FIRST CREDIT UNION to the Deserae Turner fund and the family would receive the entire amount of your donation.
