Another amazing example of humanity has come in the wake of the Las Vegas mass shooting on Oct. 1. 27-year-old Tina Frost was in a coma for nearly two weeks after a bullet struck her in the forehead during the shooting at the Route 91 music festival in Las Vegas.

Fortunately, Tina woke up from her coma on Oct. 13 and took her first steps in nearly two weeks.

"It's going to be such a long road, but we are in it for the long haul because she has made it through this far.," said Tina's mother.

Tina is from the Washington D.C. area but was attending the Route 91 festival with her boyfriend when the shots began. When news broke of her situation those in the DMV area sprung into action and began raising money for her via a GoFundMe account.

Today, the GoFundMe is above $555,000 and growing. The financial gesture can be described as nothing short of incredible and hopefully, it makes this long, hard journey a bit easier for Tina and her family.
