KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — The youngest survivor of the Kalamazoo shooting spree is scheduled to undergo a major surgery on Friday.
According to the Abbie Kopf Recovery GoFundMe account, the 14-year-old will undergo a procedure to replace the missing part of her skull. It’s scheduled to start at 8 a.m.
Last month she said she was “looking forward to it,” according to a post on her GoFundMe account.
Abbie shared her story including her incredible recovery on NBC Nightly News in April.
The interview happened just days after she left Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital in Grand Rapids after six weeks of daily therapy.
Abbie was the youngest victim in the Feb. 20 shooting rampage that killed Mary Jo Nye, Mary Lou Nye, Dorothy Brown, Barbara Hawthorne, and father and son Rich and Tyler Smith. Tiana Carruthers, who was also seriously injured in the shooting spree, continues to recover.
