LV Shooting Victim - Heroic Fireman

$15,755 of $25,000 goal

Created October 3, 2017
My name is Mark and writing this on behalf of my friend Mike Kordich. He is a firefighter on a hot shot fire crew in SoCal. He was enjoying a weekend with two other firefighters attending the Route 91 country music festival in Las Vegas. When the shooting began, Mike observed a victim of the shooting go down in front of him with a life threatening injury. Instead of fleeing from danger Mike ran towards it and this victim. Mike immediately reverted back to his medical training by giving this victim several rounds of CPR while bullets impacted the ground around him. Mike continued giving this victim aid until he himself was shot in his right arm. Mike lost the function of his arm and couldn't continue CPR. Mike later underwent surgery for his gunshot wound. The doctors have told him he may need additional surgeries and eventually physical therapy. Because of Mikes line of work, using hand tools, and fighting wild land fires he may be out of work for some time. As his long time friend I am asking for donations to help him in his recovery & to assist with medical expenses.

Mike has made it through his second surgery. They added 2 metal plates to his bone. He will be needing a bone and skin graft later on. Please continue to pray for Mike and others.

Mike is home! He was picked yesterday by his fire crew buddies and taken home to their fire camp in Devore. Mike is facing skin and bone graft to finish off the repair of his badly damaged arm. He will also be getting tons of therapy to regain full use of his arm. We are about halfway to the goal amount raised for Mike at this point, which is awesome! If you have not donated and can, please donate to Mike! Any donation any amount will help.

Thank you everyone who has donated!!! Let's keep this going and raise as much as we can for Mike.

Below Tuesday 10/05/17-

Just spoke with Mike on the phone. He sounds good but is tired. His surgeon came in to tell him that he will be getting another surgery to correct and repair his radial bone. This surgery will happen either tomorrow or Thursday.

Below Wednesday 10/04/17 morning update-

Good morning everyone, Mike will be undergoing the knife this morning at 10am for his second surgery. His doctor came in last night and expressed concern for his radial bone. When Mike was shot the bullet did significant damage to his radial bone. They will try to repair this and may be adding metal and other things to get his arm to function correctly so he can use it again.
Please continue to keep Mike and his doctors in your thoughts and prayers

We made significant progress throughout the night and early this morning in raising money for Mike. If you have not donated and can please do, any amount will help. Mike is expected to be out of work for a significant time and will be having costly medical bills and therapy. Thank you all!
