Bad Bunny welcomed Uvalde survivor in last Texas stop on tour

Mayah Zamora and her family attended the superstar’s show in Arlington on Friday

‘She is our hero!’: 10-year-old Robb Elementary shooting victim released from San Antonio hospital

Before superstar Bad Bunny left Texas to continue his tour, he once again showed his support for the survivors of the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde.

The Correa Family Foundation posted an image of the singer with Uvalde student Mayah Zamora from his show in Arlington’s AT&T Stadium on Friday night.

She also received signed merchandise from the singer and was able to share the experience with her family, according to the foundation’s post on Monday.

“A huge thank you to @badbunnypr for welcoming our Hero of the Month, Mayah Zamora, to your concert, and for making sure she had a beautiful and fun night dancing with her family!” the post read. “All the love she received from you and your team @noahassad @rimas made this an incredible experience she and her family will cherish.”

Zamora was one of the children injured in the May 24 attack, and she spent two months recovering at University Hospital in San Antonio.

The Correa Family Foundation, founded by former Houston Astros player Carlos Correa, said Mayah is August’s Hero of the Month. She was also honored at an Astros game last month when she threw out the first pitch.

“Mayah has suffered unimaginable hardship this year after losing many of her closest friends and two beloved teachers during the Robb Elementary School massacre in Uvalde, Texas.” the foundation previously posted. “She was severely and critically wounded herself. While hospitalized, she continued to amaze doctors with her resiliency and strength. All doctors, from her trauma team to plastic surgeons, were in awe of her. It is a true miracle that she survived all of her injuries, which included a severe wound to her chest.”

She underwent more than 20 surgeries while at University Hospital, the foundation said.

The foundation also secured the funding to build Mayah and her family a new home “in a location where she feels safe and comfortable.”
