Family and friends are asking for lots of love and prayers for Caleb. They’re also taking donations to help with the aspiring comedian’s staggering medical bills. The couple has no health insurance, and his care is expected to cost somewhere near $2 million.
People magazine’s Friday cover story also pays tribute to the victims and those heroes who showed “courage in chaos” when James Holmes allegedly opened fire on the sold-out crowd.
Among the brave was Alex Treves, 24, who shielded girlfriend Amanda Lindgren from the spray of bullets. He died, while his girlfriend survived.
"He would do anything for me, and he did," Lindgren, 24, told People. "He saved me. He was my angel."
