Friends Launch Online Campaign to Help Uninsured Aurora Shooting Victim
Caleb Medley was one of the 58 people injured during last week’s horrific theater shooting in Colorado. As a result of that terrible ordeal, the aspiring comedian lost his right eye, suffered brain damage and is currently in a medically-induced coma. To make matters worse, he has no insurance and his bills could exceed $2 million. There is a bright spot in this terrible story, however.
Medley’s friends have organized a website to accept donations on his behalf. “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,” the website reads.
Medley’s pregnant wife, Katie, was present during the shooting as well, but she fortunately escaped injury and has since given birth to the couple’s first child, a baby boy named Hugo.
According to the Associated Press, more than $70,000 has been raised so far, but that’s still a far cry from the amount needed to cover the cost of Medley’s staggering medical bills. Please visit the site today and donate if you can.
