The eight to 10-hour surgery planned for October 16, 2019, will be to begin reconstructing her face. In order to do so, bone and tissue will need to be cut and taken from her leg and formed in replace of her cheekbone. 

Her jaw is also broke in three places and will need to have a plate inserted to realign it. 

 

The organizer of the GoFundMe has stated that the fundraising goal has been raised because Evancio was hit by a U.S. driver. 

“US insurance policies can be as low as 20,000 dollars. We are going to investigate and find out what his insurance if any covers but the likelihood is poor that we will receive enough endurance money to cover the many years of rehabilitation Desiree will need,” writes the GoFundMe.
