Hello everyone,
My name is Stephanie Abeyta and I am creating this account for my dear friend and coworker Karessa Royce. Karessa is a beautiful, warmhearted, and charismatic soul that was tragically struck in the mass shooting at the Route 91 harvest festival in Las Vegas. She has suffered a gunshot wound through her shoulder that pierced her lung, causing it to collapse. She is out of surgery and is stable. However, this is just the beginning of her road to recovery. We are asking everyone to please help our dear friend and her family through this difficult and devastating time with any means possible.  

All funds donated to this account will be sent directly to Karessas mother and father for all medical expenses and hospital stay. 

Our love and prayers are with you Karessa.
Stay strong babygirl.

From the entire Royce family, we would like to thank you for your prayers, love, and support. It has meant more than words can say. The following is from Karessa:

"This season of life is very surreal. It has been 24 days since I was shot at the Route 91 Festival; but God is so good and I am so blessed to be recovering.
THANK YOU all for your continued support. I am so very thankful for all of the donations, texts, cards, meals, flowers, etc. that I have received from you all. Your support and love has not gone unnoticed. Please be patient with me as it may take me some time to respond to everyone.
I pray you all stay encouraged and positive during this time. For those of you that have personally lost someone due to this incident, I offer my deepest condolences. For those of you struggling with understanding, I wish you peace. Please believe that our hometown is not lost and nothing is broken. No amount of darkness can dim our beautifully lit city; the way our community has rallied together during this time is a testament of this.
I'm PROUD of you all, of this community, and of our city. We are VegasStrong and we will all heal together.
God Bless,

Karessa Royce"

This gofundme was originally created by Stephanie Abeyta and has now been passed on to Monica Royce, Karessa's mother. On behalf of Karessa's family, we can't express how grateful we are for the amount of support that has poured in for Ress. We cried at the sight of the amazing generosity that has come through gofundme. Karessa is still in the hospital, but she continues to progress. We have a long road ahead us, so please keep Karessa in your prayers. Thank you for everything!

Sincerely,

The Royce Family
