MUSKEGON, Mich.- She was an innocent bystander, but her life changed in just an instant. Carmesha Rogers was shot July 9 on Monroe Street in Muskegon. One of her friends, 27-year-old Alex Brown, was killed in the shooting.
Rogers was taken to the hospital in critical condition but has since had her boat, a device used by doctors to relieve brain swelling, removed and is continuing to make progress. While she still can’t talk, she is moving and lets her family know that she can hear them.
Her family understands that a long recovery is ahead but they are not giving up hope and say they will be by her side every step of the way. Doctors have not given a timetable for Carmesha’s recovery but she will hopefully be moving out of the ICU soon and into a physical rehabilitation facility.
If you would like to help Rogers’ family, you can walk into any PNC Bank location and donate to the Carmesha Rogers’ Fund.
