SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

One year after she says she was left for dead, 29-year-old Joliet Frazier is sharing her story of survival.

Frazier was reportedly shot by her son's father, Elijah Haggerty, on August 8th, 2012. 

Frazier says Haggerty showed up to her front door on Cade Drive in Shreveport unannounced. She says he entered the home and shot her in the stomach and threw her on the front porch. 

Police say when they arrived to the home, they found Haggerty inside the home. He reportedly raised a weapon at officers, and later was shot and killed by a Shreveport Police Officer. 

Now, one year later Frazier says she is still struggling to survive , and will only survive if she receives an intestinal transplant. 

"Right now I am still trying to survive...someone has to help me up..help me bathe," says Frazier. 

Frazier has two children, 12 and 3 years old, who she says she can no longer care for. Her medical restrictions have forced her family members to step in to help raise her children. 

"It's really just a bunch of different medicines mixed together with some nutrition," says Frazier. 

Frazier lost most of her intestine as a result of the shooting, and now must undergo an intestinal transplant in order to survive. 

Next month, she is scheduled to visit a go to Nebraska for the procedure and spend a year rehabilitating. 

She says she hopes this will give her the life back she remembers.
