Michaela's Medical Recovery

$23,660 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 426 people in 4 months
Created October 3, 2017
Our amazing friend and local Austin neighbor was caught up in the Las Vegas shooting on October 1st.  As she was trying to flee, she was shot in the back. Her life was saved by an incredible stranger who carried her to safety and stayed with her until the paramedics were able to  reach her. After undergoing surgery, she is currently recovering in a Las Vegas hospital. 

Michaela is a mom to 2 young girls under 5. She is a long way from home and facing an unknown future of recovery and rehabilitation, as well as mounting medical expenses and her fiancé not being able to work while they are Las Vegas.  

We are trying to provide financial help so they can focus on her recovery. Anything you  can donate will help this amazing family on their path to healing after this unimaginable trauma.

100% of the money raised through this campaign will go Michaela and her partner Greg to help with her recovery; including medical bills,  travel and accommodation expenses for her family to be close to her while she is away from home, loss of earnings during her recovery, and the cost of returning Michaela to Austin when she is well enough. The money will be withdrawn directly by Michaela and her fiance, Greg.

Thank you so much for any help you can give them. Your prayers are also greatly appreciated.

I just wanted to take a minute to say how overwhelmed we've been by the support from everyone on this page. We are still struggling to get our heads around the amount we've raised and the messages we've received. It is just amazing.

This money is already making a huge difference to Michaela's recovery - not only by alleviating some of the financial stress and burden of this terrible situation, but also by showing Michaela and her family just how much support they have. It has also reminded all of us how many GOOD people there are in the world.

Michaela is making incredible progress - she is a warrior and is working hard to get well enough to come home. She is completely overwhelmed by the support she's received and if she could thank everyone individually, she would.

We can never really express our gratitude in words, but just hope you all know what a difference you have all made.

Thank you so much to everyone for their kind messages and incredibly generous donations. We are overwhelmed by the support we have received for Michael and are so grateful.

I just wanted to update everyone that Michaela has been able to leave the hospital in Las Vegas and will now be continuing her treatment at a hospital in Orange County so that she can be close to the family and friends that she and Greg have living there. She will return home to Austin as soon as she is well enough but we don't yet know when that will be. We appreciate your prayers for her continuing recovery and thank you so much again for your support for this incredible family.
