Being crowned homecoming queen is a memorable moment in any teen’s life. It was especially meaningful for Deserae Turner, who almost didn’t make it past age 14.

Over two years after being shot and left for dead at age 14, Deserae Turner was crowned her high school’s homecoming queen.

In January 2017, a friend lured Deserae to a canal in Smithfield, Utah where he shot her in the head and left her for dead.

Colter Peterson and his co-conspirator Jayzon Decker, who were both 17 at the time, were sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for their crimes. Deserae has been in recovery ever since then. The bullet hit the right side of her brain, so she’s had 10 brain surgeries and goes through intense physical therapy to teach the left side of her body how to move again. But, while she goes through her recovery, her community also wanted to give her a happy night to remember forever.

Deserae was crowned homecoming queen of Green Canyon High School in North Logan, Utah.

Deserae told KSTU, “I was just a homecoming queen; there’s nothing special about that. But then, if you think about what I’ve been through then yes, it’s very special.”

Friends in the community paid for Deserae’s silver tulle dress and helped her do her hair and makeup for the big day. She went to the dance with a friend and shared a special homecoming royalty dance with the Homecoming King.

“It just gives you that comfort and love that, yes, I am truly loved,” Deserae said. “Everybody needs to know that feeling.”

Deserae is still in recovery and it costs her family about $500 a month after insurance. If you’d like to help her and her family, you can donate to her GoFundMe page.
