The Alvarado family of southern Utah was devastated by the mass shooting in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017.
35 year-old Heather Alvarado was killed in the shooting. Her 14 year-old daughter Syrus was there with her and survived. Due to trauma, Syrus is now being homeschooled. Heather’s youngest son with husband Albert Alvarado is also homeschooled due to health reasons (immunodeficiency). Heather ran an in-home daycare/preschool in order to be closer to her son and provide for his care.
Heather had no life insurance. Albert has to return to work as a firefighter not knowing how he will care for their surviving children, who need him right now.

Gun violence destroys families. The cameras go away, but the problems remain. Las Vegas was the worst single-gunman mass shooting in U.S. history. There are wounds that will take a long time to heal.
