Davis is one of the survivors.  Because she was not injured, for months she said she thought 1 October was not her story to tell.  But now she is sharing the daily emotional pain she feels after that horrific night.

"A war zone is a good way to put it," said Davis.

Davis wants the money to go to families of the victims and those recovering from injuries.

"I don't want any money," she said.

Part of the money that will eventually be handed out could come from the shooter's estate, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

"I have to wonder why," said Davis, "...why wasn't it something that she said day one."

Right now, the value of the shooter's estate remains unclear.  Once it is sorted out, a notice will be sent to victims.
