Friends Launch Campaign To Help Pay for Uninsured Aurora Shooting Victim
The shooting that took place in the Aurora Colorado movie theater still sits fresh in our memory. It’s only been a week, and it haunts us. Everyday it seems we hear more, and more stories about some of the amazing people that gave their lives protecting others in the theater that night, or some of the amazing stories of survival. This story is sure to touch your heart as well.
Caleb Medley was one of the 58 people injured in last weeks horrible theater shooting. the aspiring comedian lost his right eye, suffered brain damage and is currently in a medically-induced coma. Also, Caleb does not have insurance. They said that his medical bills could exceed $2million.
There is a silver lining behind this cloud though. Caleb must be a pretty amazing guy, because he has a good group of friends. His friends have teamed up, and launched a website to help Caleb out with his medical expenses. The website also states “If you are in financial stress and can only support Caleb through prayer or by sending him your good thoughts, thank you. If you are able to help financially, thank you for that too. Any amount is helpful, even a dollar will help.”
On the website you can read all about Caleb, and his small family. Caleb is married, and his wife recently welcome a brand new baby boy into the world. You can read all about it, and see video of Caleb performing comedy on the website.
I really hope the absolute best for Caleb and his family, a full recovery, and for one brand new little boy to have his dad around for years to come.
