GoFundMe created to support the Lambertville family who lost both parents
Three years ago, Carly Leary and her little sister Maddison experienced one of the most traumatic events a child could endure when they lost their father to cancer.
Fortunately, they still had their mother, a cancer survivor, to support them and keep going. Earlier this year, they lost their home when Hurricane Ida ravaged Lambertville and in particular the Village apartments on Main Street.
Again, it was their mother’s persistence, making sure they had a roof over their heads, security, and all the relative happiness.
Recently, their mother’s breast cancer had returned, more aggressive than ever. Rebecca Ann Leary, 50, died suddenly on November 19e.
This tragedy struck particularly near us here at the station for PST’s Wade, who grew up in Lambertville, and has been longtime friends with “Becky” and her family.
Carly is 23, engaged and will now raise her 13-year-old sister, picking up where her parents left off. The GoFundMe below has been set up to help in this effort so that they both have a fair chance at life without going into debt.
âTo help offset any future costs and to ensure that the girls are taken away, we are launching this GoFundMe in the hopes of helping them through this difficult time,â the GoFundMe organizers wrote on the page. They set a goal of $ 100,000 and by Monday morning (November 29) they had raised almost $ 32,000.
