EY Employee Shot in Las Vegas Has Made Huge Strides in Her Recovery

We’ll leave you with some good news as we head into the weekend. Tina Frost, the EY employee who was shot in the head during the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, 2017, is now able to talk and drive, family and friends recently told the Baltimore Sun.

“She’s really a miracle,” said Amy Klinger, a family friend. While only a small percentage of people shot in the head survive, much less thrive, Tina Frost “is a fully functioning, speaking, thinking person,” Klinger said.

The San Diego resident is undergoing more surgeries at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore this month, but those surgeries are “purely cosmetic,” Klinger said. Following the shooting, doctors removed Frost’s right eye and took a section of her skull to remove bullet fragments and allow her brain to heal, according to the article.

An update on her GoFundMe page reports that Frost will have two follow-up appointments, as well as another neurological test, during the Thanksgiving holiday, but she will head back home to San Diego at the end of November.

Frost has not yet been able to return to work.

The GoFundMe page has raised $616,739 from 10,354 donors as of Nov. 16, which will go toward Frost’s medical expenses and recovery. The fundraising goal was $50,000.

Klinger told the Baltimore Sun that much of the money was donated by Frost’s co-workers at EY following the shooting.

That’s awesome.
