My name is Emmy Dean. I work for Mandalay Bay in the city of Las Vegas. Ariel Romero is a fellow Loyola Marymount University alum,  Theta sister, and friend to all. During the mass shooting at Route 91 Sunday night, Ariel was shot in the face and her boyfriend, Mikey Duarte's, litte sister, Christiana, was shot and missing. Ariel is in stable condition currently in the hospital,  but Christiana has since been found and confirmed dead. I do not know the Duarte family personally, but I grieve for them deeply. Ariel is alive, but she faces hospital and surgery bills, and she faces the trauma of living through an event like this and losing a friend.

Because I do not know the Duarte family personally, all funds donated to this account will be sent directly to the Romero family for medical expenses and I know they will be in communication with the Duarte's, too.

Ariel and Duarte family, we stand by you through this and you have the prayers of thousands on your side.

Good evening to everyone that showed their love and support in words, donations, thoughts, and prayers. I have an update on behalf of the Romero family.

"Our family would like to thank every single person for their support.
Ariel is recovering amazingly well. So well that she participated in a 10k race!
All of the love and prayers have given her the strength to face the aftermath of this tragedy in the most courageous and faithful way.
Please keep her in your prayers as she heals and plans her return to law school and running a half marathon!"

Thank you all so much for inspiring faith in humanity in the midst of very difficult times. God bless you!

Good evening all. I spoke with Ariel's brother and mom late last week. They expressed that Ariel is out of surgery and that the surgery went extremely well. As soon as the swelling goes down, the doctors assured she would be able to breath on her own again. They are all unbelievably touched by your support. Ariel's family and the Duarte family are like one so it's important to keep in mind that the road to recovery is a long one and they appreciate your continued prayers. I can't thank you all enough for your monetary support, support in words, support by sharing with all of your friends and family... only light can drive out darkness and you are all acting as that light. Thank you.
