Created October 2, 2017
Our sister Natalie was a victim of the Route 91 shootings in Las Vegas and is in need of your generosity. Natalie is currently at a hospital in the Las Vegas area. A team is working to potentially have Natalie flown to a trauma center in Orange County, Ca. The flight to Orange County is costly. The money would be spent towards the flight and all the other general medical expenses. There many variables that could make the flight and possibility and some that would curb it as an option. We thank you in advance for all your kind words and support during this tragic time.

Your withdrawal plan to get the funds from the campaign to the ultimate beneficiary/ies. She is my sister so I plan on giving her the cash directly. Or a check, whatever is easier for her.

I will personally write a check in the total raised and give to Jason Grumet, Natalie's husband. He is on board and knows what's going on about the account. 
Thank you

An update about Natalie:
Today Natalie checked into Dr. Karen Potter's office for oral surgery. The procedure will last about three hours. The purpose of the procedure is to address numerous teeth that became necrotic as a result of the gun shot wound injury.

Natalie is in good hands. Dr. Steve Yun will be keeping Natalie comfortable during the procedure. Dr. Dave Nicholls made special arrangements to meet with Natalie and Dr. Potter prior to the start of the procedure. We are both very grateful and thankful for all of the doctors and thier staff who are taking such special care of Natalie.

A post from Natalie:
We have had a busy morning with 3 Dr's appointments today. Our second appointment was with Dr. Nicholls our maxillofacial surgeon. He wrote a great article about my case in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. We continue to wait for my wounds to heal and for the skin to soften up as we prepare for my next surgery (the bone graph). I experience pain daily due to the severity of the injury and nerve damage. The impact of the gunshot to my jaw displaced pieces of bone containing multiple teeth. Dr. Nicholls was able to properly align and reattach the pieces of bone to the upper and lower mandible. I will possibly need several root canals or teeth removed before my bone graph in order to avoid any possible infections. Unfortunately, my mouth mobility and ability to open is still limited so I will need to wait a few more weeks to be remeasured in order to determine if I can even open wide enough for dental work at this point. Today was yet another reminder of patience and that there will be multiple steps in my treatment plan. I am so grateful to have the utmost trust in all my doctors and surgeons as we continue on my journey. Thanks for all the support. Your love continues to push me forward!

Natalie's surgery went well and she is resting comfortably. She is experiencing moderately severe pain and discomfort; however, she is in good spirits. The purpose of the surgery was to remove the hardware that was used to wire Natalie's jaw shut. The hardware was also used with rubber bands to provide added stability. During the surgery the doctor made several incisions near the screws that affixed the upper arch hardware to her jaw. The screws and the hardware were successfully removed. The incisions were closed using dissolvable sutures. The lower arch was removed by the cutting of the wires which secured the lower arch to Natalie's teeth. Natalie will have a bone graft surgery in the coming months.

The below picture is of the above-mentioned hardware.

A post from Natalie:

Had a great check up with my surgeon Dr. Lee. He truly has the most gentle touch, which I'm extremely grateful for! Some areas on the left side have softened, the majority of the area remains swollen and somewhat hard, mostly due to the severe impact of the bullet and multiple surgeries. Depending on how the area softens and heals they will schedule my next surgery in the near future. Dr. Lee is recommending I keep tape on the area to reduce hypertrophic scarring and promote healing of the skin. Due to the mandibular nerve being completely destroyed I have no function or feeling in my left lower lip area. We will possibly explore nerve surgeries in the future once my jaw is stable, however we were cautioned that those surgeries do not offer guaranteed results.
