A Maryland native shot in a mass shooting is making an amazing recovery.
So good, according to a family spokesperson, that 27-year-old Tina Frost of Gambrills, Md. now has plans to return to life like it was before October 1st when she was shot in the Las Vegas shooting massacre.
"We're amazed and thrilled at the progress she's made," family spokesperson Amy Klinger told WUSA9. "She's so motivated."
Frost, a 2008 Arundel High School graduate, and her boyfriend drove from San Diego to attend the Route 91 Harvest Festival. One of shooter Stephen Paddock’s bullets destroyed Frost’s right eye and forehead, leaving the former soccer star in a coma for weeks.
Now, Frost has started to go out public. She is visiting with friends and going to the movies, said her mother, Mary Watson Moreland, in a post on Facebook.
"She is working hard, gaining strength, going to her therapies four times a week, walks on the treadmill and helps with cooking and little things around the house," said Moreland. "With her positive attitude and smile, and her family and friends surrounding her with love and support, we feel her marathon is going to be amazing."
Frost still needs at least two more surgeries in Baltimore to install a prosthetic eye. Then, Frost plans to return to San Diego where she was living and working for Earnst & Young.
An official GoFundMe has now brought in more than $611,000 in donations.
"The family continues to appreciate love and support of friends and family and love from the community," said Klinger.
