24592824_1507764784.6314_funddescriptionSam was shot during the massacre attack at the Harvest 91 festival in Las Vegas October 1st. Sam got hit in the second round of the spray of bullets. She was hit in her left leg, the bullet shattered her bones. She under went surgery on October 2nd, to reconstruct the bones in her leg, however they were not able to remove the bullet. She has been moved to an inpatient rehabilitation facility to begin learning how to walk, dress, and take care of herself.
Sam faces a very long and painful recovery.
Sam’s older brother Malcolm shielded her from the rain of bullets, and being trampled.
She is expected to stay several weeks in rehab.
While she is recovering from this tragedy...mentally and physically her bills accumulate.
Please help if you are able.
It's scary to imagine this happening to anyone while out enjoying their day. Sam is a music lover and may not be able to attend another show.
Thank you for your thoughts,  prayers, and any amount you are able to give.

Thank you.

Sam’s Update

Sam went to the surgeon for her follow up visit yesterday. He said she can put light weight on her leg, If you know Sam she took it as she can walk and was off walking with the walker. She found out last night that wasn’t too smart as she was in excruciating pain. She is at the six week mark, the incision is healing nicely. She is not going to be able to work until February or March of 2018. We pray that she listens to the doctors and do what she’s supposed to do. She’s in good sprit today! She desperately wants her life back! She even getting the itch to see her boys Luke and Chris! Will continue to pray for her and her determination to get better as quick as possible.

Update. 10.29.17

Sam is finally home from the hospital after nearly a month. She's comfortable in her own bed, but still in a lot of pain. Her CNA, physical therapist and occupational therapist now treat her at home. She also had to make her home accessible as she's still unable to bear weight on her leg.

Sam will not be returning to Exhibit City News any time soon. She tried to do some work from the hospital, but unfortunately has received no pay.
She's looking into disability, lost wages, etc. and that could take a considerable amount of time while her expenses continue to accumulate.

Sam is grateful to everyone for their support, well wishes, and prayers.
She says that the little things she used to take for granted are the things she misses most.
It's going to be a long road ahead.

Update. 10.23.17

Doctors said the bullet would be lodged in Sam's leg forever because it was entwined in her nerves, but it worked its way out naturally!!
Look at the photo below to see the X-ray of her leg with the bullet in it (and the extensive rebuilding of her leg)
and the actual bullet once it came out.
Again, still a LONG road ahead, but I wanted to post a little positive news.
Thank you, again!

I went to visit Sam in the hospital today. She's starting to get around a bit in a wheelchair, but has a long road ahead....no walking yet.
She's getting a blood transfusion today and that should give her some energy.
Please keep her in your prayers.
Thank you.
