A fund has been established to help cover the medical expenses of Aurora, Colorado shooting victim Brent Lowak of Bulverde who was critically injured in the July 20th shooting rampage during the midnight showing of "Dark Knight Rises" at an Aurora movie theatre. The 2003 Smithson Valley graduate was visiting with his best friend 2006 SVHS graduate Jessica Ghawi, who was among 12 people killed in the nation's worst mass shooting.
To help offset astronomical medical expenses, the Brent Lowak Survivor Expense fund has been set up at Wells Fargo Bank by two of his best friends, Meg and Billy Bodin. "He's going to need financial assisitance getting those medical bills covered" Meg Bodin said Monday afternoon.
