Natalie’s Story:

On the evening of October 1, 2017, while attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on the Las Vegas Strip with a group of friends, a gunman opened fire shooting Natalie in the face nearly killing her. The Las Vegas shooting massacre quickly became known as the deadliest mass shooting in United States history. For Natalie, this event began an agonizing and painful journey toward recovery while uncovering her endless strength, bravery, and resilience along the way. After making her way to safety at a nearby hotel, she was taken via ambulance to Sunrise Hospital where her jaw was noted to be completely obliterated – her chin fractured in half, facial nerves destroyed, leading the left side of her face partially paralyzed. She spent 20 days in the Intensive Care Unit and underwent nine surgeries during the first year.

Surprisingly, this was not Natalie’s first attempt at fighting for her life. At the mere age of 27, Natalie was diagnosed with a devastating and highly aggressive form of breast cancer. After undergoing six rounds of intensive chemotherapy and numerous surgeries, Natalie beat the odds and eventually recovered. Soon after going into remission, she dedicated herself to patient care and rebuilding her life.

After 10 years in remission from breast cancer, Natalie found herself fighting for her life once again on the fateful night of the shooting in 2017. During her recovery, Natalie began sharing the coping mechanisms she has developed over the last decade to help others break down the walls to realize their full potential and overcome adversity. This true story of a life being shattered and rebuilt in a mere decade has given strength and hope to thousands of people across the United States and world. Natalie is a survivor and a true warrior, and her message is one of perseverance to help others find their inner warrior to keep fighting and moving forward.
