Earlier this summer, a gunman stormed Robb Elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, and opened fire on students and teachers.

Two teachers and 19 children lost their lives in the horrifying attack, and countless more were hospitalized with injuries.

Now, the last survivor of the shooting - 10-year-old Mayah Zamora - has been discharged from University Hospital. She left last Friday (July 29) to the sound of cheers and applause from medical staff who chanted her name as she waved goodbye.

In a tweet, the hospital wrote that Mayah's discharge marked a "happy day". "Our final patient from the Uvalde shooting, 10-year-old Mayah Zamora, was discharged!"

They continued: "She passed out roses and left in style thanks to @HEB. She is our hero and we can't wait to see all she accomplishes in the future! #MayahStrong."

In a separate post, the hospital shared snaps of Mayah as she handed out flowers to staff and waved to them out the window of the car before heading home with her family.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe set up in her honor has already raised over $114,000 to help pay for the numerous medical procedures and treatments she has had to undergo.

In a June 10 update to the fundraiser, her family gave more details on their daughter's condition and thanked everyone who had contributed so far.

"Mayah's family would like to give its most heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has donated," they wrote.

"Mayah has a very long road to recovery, and we're going to be with her the entire way. This long road includes numerous surgeries Mayah had undergone, future surgeries she may require, future hospital and doctor's visits, mental health/trauma treatment, amongst many other things," the family continued.

They concluded by writing: "Mayah's family is by her side as she receives medical care in San Antonio, about an hour and a half away from Uvalde. This family has left their home to tend to their daughter, this is emotionally, physically and financially taxing. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated."
