Phoebe Arthur, a 14-year-old survivor of a school shooting in Oxford, Michigan, is home from Flint’s Hurley Medical Center, leaving one student still hospitalized but in stable condition.
In a GoFundMe page set up by a cousin of Phoebe’s, it was noted that Phoebe was shot in the chest and neck, requiring immediate surgery after which she was put on a ventilator until stable.
“Through it all, her mom says Phoebe ‘has been the strongest, bravest, most epic human. She is a fighter,’ ” the cousin said.
Overall, there are seven verified GoFundMe pages related to the Oxford shooting, six designated for victims and one for the community.
Another GoFundMe for another shooting victim Eli Mueller detailed his medical challenges.
“The bullet grazed his two fingers as it passed between them, went into his open mouth, hit and shattered 3-4 teeth, then out his right cheek below his ear,” Carter-Johnston (a cousin) wrote on the GoFundMe page. “This young man at the age of 14 will have to pause his teenage life to go through medical procedures and take time to heal in many ways.”
Mueller’s 17-year-old girlfriend is the remaining victim still hospitalized but in stable condition.
On his first win as an NFL coach, Dan Campbell dedicated the game ball to the victims of the Oxford shooting.
Michigan Football head coach Jim Harbaugh also dedicated their winning Big Ten championship game to the Oxford victims. The team wore a patch bearing the number “42” for victim Tate Myre’s football number along with four hearts representing the four who died. Michigan defeated Iowa in the game 42-3.
Myre’s family were honorary captains of the team and joined the players on the field for the opening coin toss. They wore shirts that read Oxford Strong.
