Petra Anderson was one of the shooting victims in the Colorado massacre at the premiere of the new Batman movie. She was shot in the face and left for dead among the many other fatalities in the shooting. She survived because of a rare genetic condition that left her with a small channel of fluid running from the front to back of her brain. When she was shot in the face, the bullet entered right through her nose and went all the way through her brain to the back of her skull. But because it followed the exact channel created by her brain defect, it avoided hitting any vital areas. It did very little damage and she is expected to make a full recovery.

Petra's mother, Kim Anderson, who had terminal cancer at the time of the shooting, said her daughter was expected to make a full recovery. "I believe that she was not only protected by God, but that she was actually prepared for it," she said. "God won't let the suffering or the setbacks have the last word." 

In August, Petra's mother passed away. Petra continues to remain positive, but struggles with these incredible burdens. A relief fund has been set up for Petra to assist with her medical bills and surgery. Many of the stories I post here are about people who have overcome their tragedy. Well, this one is about someone who is currently in the process and is working hard to move forward by tackling her obstacles one at a time.
