 OLYMPIA, WA
Rand McGowan was a victim of the UCC shooting, His family counts themselves lucky as Rand was only shot in the hand. Rand is one of triplet boys and has an older brother. Two of His brothers were present at the time of the shooting. Rand underwent surgery on his hand and now is recovering at home with family. 
I would like to see the McGowan family blessed through this and see them come out on top. This family has a special place in my heart and I want nothing less than to see them taken care of. 


Go Fund Me asked for addition information about me to make sure these funds get to the McGowans and I appreciate  that. 

My name is Julianna,
The McGowans have been very close to my family for 9 years. I currently live in Olympia,WA. 
The funds will be used for Medical Bills,Counseling and anything else this family may need through this time. 
I will be delivering the funds personally to the McGowans in two weeks. 


Thank you again

Thank you for all the support and love. I have been going to physical therapy for 6 weeks and still going. Things are looking promising for full recovery. Thanks for all your support in this difficult time.

Thank you for all your prayers and support for the McGowans and all the other families involved in this terrible tragedy. Even if we don't hit the goal I set for this family, I know they will be taken care of through the many other fundraisers people have put together for these families. For that I am greatful.

Thank you

The McGowan boys resumed their classes at UCC this Monday. Thank you all for your generosity it has not gone unnoticed and it is truly a blessing. If you could help me keep this circulating for this family that would be amazing!

The invisible injuries can be as bad, or worse, than the physical. I hope and pray, Rand, for the healing of your wound and of your spirit. ❤️

I just wanted to say that this gofundme user is legit. To many users during this time are claiming to be helping others but unfortunately are scamming people. It's sad really but I have taken time out of my schedule to let people know that this is a legit user. Julianna Gilstrap has been a friend of the McGowans for 9 years and has continued to show my family love while living in Olympia Washington.... During the UCC shooting I had 2 brothers that day on campus. As I was huddled and packed into the library supply closet with countless others who were all in panic all at the same time, I began to text my brothers to make sure they were okay. Ian respond immediately saying he was okay, but Rand was nowhere to be heard... I began to text anyone and everyone asking for prayers in regards to the events that happened in Synder hall. 7 minutes later I get a text from Rand saying, "Just shot in the finger" Of course millions of questions rushing in my head during this time, like where? And are you okay? And do you need help? My brother instincts came into play and I wanted nothing more then to break out of the lockdown, currently at the school, and to come get him. I'm glad that I had been yards away because if I had known he was in danger, thought and reason completely would have left my body. Rage would have consumed me and I probably would not be here today. Fortunately I don't have to wonder about the what if's. My brother made it out alive in one piece with a wound to his hand, that could of been a lot worse. My thankfulness goes out to the people that prayed during those hard 7 minutes, and to those that have given my family and I the support, prayers and love we all soo needed. Thanks you all so much! This is my story. #IAMCHRISTIAN

Hello to all the victims (I hate that word) of the UCC shootings. We don't think about this much until it impacts on our own lives. So many of us have gone to UCC, and support it today as alumni. I graduated from UCC in 2010 and 2011. I am now a Substitute Instructional Assistant with Roseburg Public Schools, and an Ordained Christian Pastor.. I am not able to donate cash, because I am considered "Working Poor" What I can offer is support. Emotional or spiritual. I have met many people like me, just trying to wrap our heads around what happened. If you, or someone you know needs a shoulder, or just a friendly hug I am your girl! You may contact me on my cell which is 541 430 2246. I stand with others in my community to support not only Roseburg or UCC, but anywhere here in Douglas County. Please let me be a part of the healing for our little town!

This is my daughter's fellow band member at RHS. She calls him "Man Flute" because he was the only male in their section. He is a most polite and accomplished Freshman at UCC. I am so sorry for the terrible start to your college career. We wish for your hand and your soul, a complete healing. We love you Rand.
