KUSA - Friday marks 203 days since the Aurora theater shooting, and one of the most critically-injured victims has not gone home yet.

Most of Ashley Moser's days were spent in the hospital. The rest were spent in a hotel because she could not get around her place in the wheelchair she had to use after being paralyzed.

After almost three weeks of work remodeling, Ashley's condo was finished Friday.

On Saturday, she gets to move into her new, accessible home because of a gift from strangers.

The Homebuilders Foundation and a local business donated the time, labor and supplies.

They say they wanted to do what they could because they understand much of what she lost can never be repaired or replaced.

Her daughter, 6-year-old Veronica Mosher, was killed in the attack, and she lost her unborn baby due to her injuries.

More than a dozen people volunteered time to retro-fit the bathroom and kitchen, widen the doorways and pull up all the carpet to replace it with hardwood.

Altitude Digital Partners had its staff spend a work day working on the condo. The homebuilders Foundation has now finished three projects for survivors of the theatre shooting.
