As we approach the third anniversary of the awful mass shooting in Las Vegas during the Route 91 Harvest Festival outdoor country music concert, the family of Tina Frost provided an update a few weeks ago on her recovery.

Frost, an accountant with EY in San Diego and a native of Maryland, was shot in the head during the concert, which she attended on Oct. 1, 2017, with her boyfriend and some of their friends. She lost her right eye as a result of the injury and has undergone several surgeries to her head and face.

Here’s the update Tina’s mom, Mary, posted on her GoFundMe page on Sept. 7:

Update from Mary:

Hi everyone, just as we near the 3 year mark of the horrific Las Vegas Massacre, our Tina is still undergoing surgeries and the next one will be tomorrow morning. The series to prepare for her permanent prosthetic eye continues! They will be rearranging part of the tissue underneath her eyebrow and shaping it to make a good home for the prosthetic. We are aiming for December for the big reveal of her permanent eye! We appreciate the continuing support and prayers throughout the entire process and pray everyone is staying safe.

  1. Go Fund Me charges fees. They should provide a way to write checks or send funds without paying fees and provide more assistance to this unfortunate sole.

    1. EY did a ton. The firm assigned a full-time HR resource that did everything from handling HR issues to picking up her relatives at the airport to running errands and picking up food for the family. The firm provided condos for the family at no charge in Las Vegas for extended periods of time. The firm itself – and partners and people – donated most of the $$. The firm has done an amazing job supporting Tina and her family and they have been appreciative.
