 SAN BERNARDINO, CA
On December 2, 2015 Julie Paez was at work in San Bernardino where she was a victim of the terrorist attacks. She was shot twice. One hitting her groin area and the other rupturing her bladder, shattering her pelvis and the bullet fragmented inside of her. She is going to have a long road to recovery to get back to walking and living a more normal life. This is something that will live with her forever. I am asking to raise funds to assist in her recovery. All money donated that is left over and not needed by the end of Julie's recovery process will be donated to the other victims at the San Bernardino shootings.

Dear family and friends. I would like to express my gratitude for all the prayers and support for my mom and for my family. I really appreciate your generosity. Right after the incident, I was asked by many friends who wanted to donate and help with my mom's recovery. I felt that by creating this go fund me account, despite my parents opposition, I could help my parents with many expenses that may/will come their way, in the next few months or perhaps, years. With your generous contribution, I was able to hire a contractor to convert their old bath tub shower into an ADA walk-in one. I also purchased a hospital style, adjustable bed to help my mother get in and out of bed. Future expenses may include hiring someone to be at home with my mom as needed.
My mom was released on New Year's Eve to go home, she is doing pretty well, but struggles with just being comfortable. She says that she's looking forward to each new day and hoping that she's is a little bit more comfortable than the previous day.
I don't have enough words to express my gratitude. We are very grateful to have so many friends that care for us and are concerned for my mom.
Sincerely,
Nick Paez

My mom has now been in the hospital for a week now. She was taken off morphine last night and has been in pain in her abdominal area. They are talking about moving her out of the hospital within the next few days and to the rehabilitation center. There they can do anything for my mom except surgery. They have all the equipment necessary to diagnose or treat any problem that may come up. In addition, this facility is more comfortable and can accommodate visitors much easier than where we are. In the meantime, Drs are aware that she has been bleeding internally more than she had been the last few days, but we are keeping an eye on it and the Drs don't seem too concerned. Thank you for being there for my mom and my family. Love the Paez Family.

All of her medical bills and pay will be covered by work comp. Take some of that money and take your mom somewhere peaceful that will give her heart and mind a chance to heal. Lifting you all up in prayer.

Hi Julie, Not sure if you remember me, but we met long time ago... about 15 years ago at a food festival in San Bernardino. Several Caltrans employee were present. Any way. I know you husband close to 20 years. As you know, he is a great guy. I highly admire his honest and pleasant personality. The day we heard about the incident, tears came to my eyes, It was hard to digest. Since that day my family has been praying for you. For the hand of God to touch your body and that your recovery be accelerated by the grace of God, and that you will find peace and comfort in his presence. Just wanted to tell you that we will continue praying for you and your family. You and your family are really close to our heart. Blessings, Francisco
