BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Las Vegas shooting victim and Maryland native Tina Frost is out of the hospital and is continuing to make major strides on her road to recovery.
Thursday, George Solis caught up with Rich Frost, Tina’s father, who spoke with WJZ for the first time at a fundraising event in Gambrills.
It’s now been more than two months since the deadly Las Vegas massacre.
Fifty-eight lives were lost and more than 500 were injured during the Route 1 Harvest Festival.
Tina survived being shot in the head. Her recovery from the ICU in Las Vegas to just recently walking out of inpatient rehab has been nothing short of amazing.
“They say it could take year for her to recover as much as much as she’s going to recover so she’s got a ways to go, but she had a good day today so that’s always a plus,” Rich said.
Grotto Pizza, in Tina’s Anne Arundel County community, held a fundraiser to raise money for Tina’s medical bills.
“The most important thing is family, friends, and community and she’s getting that and it’s helping. It’s helping us, help her,” Rich said.
Family friend, Sarah Bonney organized Thursday’s fundraiser.
“I think expenses should be the least of their worries,” she said.
The Frost family said they couldn’t ask for more of a Christmas miracle.
“Now she’s home to celebrate Christmas and we have a lot of family coming, so it’s going to be a very special Christmas,” Rich said.
As Tina transitions into her life out of the hospital the family is asking that if you see her out in public to just respect her privacy.
The family says she is very eager to return to some sense of normalcy.
She will continue her care on an outpatient basis.
