Holistic Doctor hit in Las Vegas Shooting Holds on in Critical, Fundraiser started for her
A fundraiser for Riverside, California chiropractor Amanda Peterson, critically wounded in the Las Vegas mass shooting, has been set for Tuesday, Oct. 10, in Riverside.
Meanwhile, Peterson remained in critical condition Wednesday, and was scheduled to undergo additional surgery in the evening, her friend Kym Benner said.
Peterson was shot in the back during the Sunday, Oct. 1, attack on concertgoers at the country music Route 91 Harvest festival
The Straw Hat pizza parlor in Riverside will donate 35% of proceeds from sales made from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 10, Benner said. Participants need to mention “Dr. Amanda.”
Benner, a doula who has many of the same expectant patients as Peterson, has established a GoFundMe account for the single mother and is also accepting PayPal donations.
The GoFundMe site may be accessed by visiting GoFundMe.com and searching for “Medical Expenses for Dr. Amanda.”
More information is on Benner’s Facebook site.
Sunday night’s shooting left 59 people — including the shooter — dead and at least 527 wounded. Nevada resident Stephen Craig Paddock opened fire from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, police have said.\
