Please help us give a leg-up to Brandon and Denise as they recover from injuries sustained during the shooting at the Dark Knight premiere.

Brandon and Densie Axelrod were in the Aurora movie theatre with his best friend, and my roommate, when the gunman opened fire at the screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado on Friday, July 20th, 2012.

He, along with my roommate, used their bodies to shield his newly-wife from the gunfire.

My roommate was shot twice, Denise was shot once, and they all were riddled with shrapnel.

Because Brandon and Denise are newlyweds, he just switched to her insurance, and because they are newlyweds, they refuse to cover the cost Brandon's surgery.

This is not the wedding gift they expected, nor deserve.

They say that the first year of marriage is the toughest, but I don't want it to be. As their friend, and an idealist, I want them to enjoy this year, and the rest of their life together, without the stress of a debt that they would never have if they just hadn't been in the wrong place at the wrong time.

They're the kind of friends a person to would be lucky to meet in a lifetime. Any donations are deeply appreciated. Let's do this!
