Umpqua shooting victim is recovering after losing kidney; please pray!

Cheyenne Fitzgerald is in intensive care recovering from the gunshot wound she suffered at the hands of the Umpqua Community College gunman – and her thoughts on gun control are undermining the anti-gun narrative.

Despite losing a kidney to the gunman, Cheyenne believes gun control made her more vulnerable and said she is a supporter of the Second Amendment.


Her brother Jesse spoke to DailyMail for the family: “We’re pro Second Amendment, pro guns. My sister, my mother, my whole family are all in favor. We were talking about it in the hospital, and none of us have changed our minds.”

Something of a prodigy, the 16-year-old nursing student was shot once and managed to survive by playing dead when another classmate’s body fell on top of her.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up by the family to help with Cheyenne’s recovery. That campaign has raised more than 12,000 dollar for Cheyenne. The campaign website reads:

‘Chey started her day by grabbing a coffee on her way to class and texting her mom saying she loved her, and to have a beautiful day.

‘God was looking over her that day as she was shot but now is recovering in ICU at Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg, Oregon.

‘She has a long recovery ahead in both physically and mentally. Your prayers for our family would be greatly appreciated, as well as any contributions.’

Support this young lady and share her gofundme page. Pray for the family as they are going through these tough times and the community as they recover.
