Matt Cox, Route 91 Recovery Fund

It breaks my heart to announce that my best friends boyfriend Matt Cox, was one of the victims of the heartbreaking Mandalay Bay Massacre. This picture of Lauren and Matt was taken yesterday just hours before the shooting took place. Matt was shot in the chest and had to undergo surgery late last night to remove part of his lung. He is now recovering in the ICU where he will be closely monitored over the next few days. I know the medical bills will be piling up soon and Matt will be out of work while he recovers from this horrible act of violence. I would love to alleviate any financial burdens this senseless act will have on my sweet friend and her boyfriend. Please donate whatever means you can to help. No donation is too small. Thank you in advance for your generous hearts. #TeamMatt (Lauren will be withdrawling the funds for this campaign)

They hope to return to their place by the end of the week. Although they are not ready for visitors quite yet, they are so appreciative and thankful for the continued love and support you all have shown. You all are the best!

I am happy to share that Matt is continuing to make great progress and has moved out of the ICU! There is still too much fluid in his drains to remove them, so hopefully they will come out tomorrow. Thank you again for the continued love and support, you all are amazing!

***If anyone has any information on the two individuals that helped Lauren carry Matt to safety after he was shot, the woman who got Matt in a car and knew to put him in the front seat sitting up, and the woman who drove Matt to the hospital along with another wounded victim quickly and safely, please send them my way. These individuals are heroes who risked their lives at the expense of the safety of perfect strangers. Matt and Lauren would like to thank you all personally. It's because of you that Matt is alive and on his way to recovery.
