Julie Woodworth UCC Shooting
Julie is one of the sweetest, most down to earth people I know. She would never hurt anyone or anything. She always wants to learn and grow. She always tries being optimistic. So I know she will make it through this like the champion she is.
She was shot not once, but multiple times. She was shot in the head, knees, and arms. She has had surgery several times. As well as needing rehabilitation.
She has made progress. She opened her eyes and responded to her name. The swelling of her brain has went down and they took the drain out. She has moved both arms and is breathing on her own. She recognizes people and is staying in a normal room now. She even got out of bed into a wheelchair and tried some mashed potatoes!
That's a huge step in the right direction! So much progress is being made in such a short amount of time.
As we all know, medical bills can be extremely expensive.
This is a trust fund set up for Julie for her current and future needs. Her Aunt Shelley is the receiver. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.
Donations and prayers would be greatly appreciated.
For those that are skeptical, I made a post in the comments below. I hope you could be understanding and positive.
I would just like to say for those that are skeptical if this is legit - please don't comment and question it, but pray, support or donate to another cause helping UCC. It tarnishes this campaign and leaves doubt for others. Julie is a beautiful person and simply needs our support like the rest of the Roseburg community at this time.
She is stable. She had surgery on her head last night. She's having surgery today as well. Her family can not talk to or touch her. So it's very hard on them not being able to let her know they are there and they love her. But she's fighting and holdin on tight.
Why are some of you questioning the amount going up? Did you question why Mr. Mintz had $10.000 as a goal but has nearly $800,000. How dare you all. This young lady is going to have far more bills than Chris Mintz yet everyone wants to make him a millionaire and say this site is a fraud. God help you all for being so cold hearted. These other victims lives are just as important yet you're not reading their stories or helping them.Shame on you all and the News for not showing compassion for the others. For Julie's family I pray she makes a full recovery and can heal from her injuries and live a happy life. Just know her life MATTERS no matter how it may appear. God bless you all.
It truly is sad that people would think this is a fraud. You have no idea how many people have and are being affected by this! And how would it even be possible for ME to take advantage of this? The money is going straight to Julie's mom through Shelley Julie's aunt, for Julie's medical expenses. I bummed up the amount because I am not to sure the extent of her bills because there is so many different bills and expenses they have and will need to pay. As someone explained, I started with a low amount, it was quickly reached, so I went up one more, and so on. I'm sorry I'm not the very best at this because I'm just a 19 year old girl who has never delt with something like this before. I'm just trying to help my friend and her family out! It is also hard to update this because of the extent of Julie's injuries. As well as trying to give her family space to get away from the media and all the questions. They need time to grieve and deal with things in their own way and I don't want to add more stress then what they are already enduring. Thank you for understanding. And thank you to those of you being positive and continuing to have Julie and her family in your thoughts!
Why would you say she is a fraud? I've met her personally a few times. My boyfriend was training her at Walmart in the Electronics department. She is absolutely not a fraud. Anyways, Julie best wishes on your recovery Journey. Sorry we didn't really talk, I'm not that social, I apologize. My prayers are with you and your family. ♥
It hurts my heart to see comments on here saying this is fraud! My friend is laying in ICU right now fighting for her life, so this account was made to help with medical expenses. Updates are hard right now because her brain is still swelling and surgery can't be done with the brain swelling. We should all e focused on her recovery! As to the amount going up, the more donated, the higher the amount sets itself!
Salena I can speak from personal experience regarding the amount changes (at least in my case). My bestfriend set up an account for me (with my permission) when I was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She didn't know how much to put as a goal because in the beginning it's nearly impossible to determine how much money would be needed for treatments, unforeseen expenses etc. She made a realistic goal which was met within 1 day so she increased the amount. Again we met the goal quickly and she raised it once more. Anything you can give to these survivors (or memorial funds) are appreciated more than you know. Not only for the financial assistance but also the love and strength it provides when your world is destroyed. I apologize for the long answer, I hope that answers your question. There are so many hidden health costs that one would never imagine at the beginning. She has an unbelievably hard road ahead of her, and while the amount seems substantial it will not come close to the amount she will need long term
People, please remember, not everyone has FB, and many have gone totally private because their pages are being stalked and hunted down by people such as journalists, media, etc. looking for relatives and so forth. This page is as legit as it gets, I assure you! Give with your hearts... these innocent victims NEED Americans right now... there by the Grace of God go any of us. God bless and prayers for a speedy recovery, Julie. ♥
