Kristene Chapa's Recovery

CORPUS CHRISTI - It's been about a month since Kristene Chapa started a new form of therapy in Houston.

Every week, she and her mother make the trip to Houston to for her treatment. Chapa's goal is to regain full use of her left arm and leg.

Chapa suffered a gun shot wound to the head two years ago. She says doctors in Houston have given her new hope of a full recovery.

Since insurance isn't covering the new program, medical bills along with travel expenses are piling up. In order for her to continue getting the treatment she needs, an online fund has been set up for her. To donate, click here: http://www.gofundme.com/helpkristene

Also, a benefit is set for Saturday August 2 at The Triangle Nite Club, 609 McBride Lane. It starts at noon and ends at 6PM.
