Ron, Karen and Krystara Brassard were among those injured in the Boston Marathon bombing this past Patriot's day. You have all seen their countless photos and videos and we are asking for your help and support as they face a long recovery process from their physical and emotional pain resulting from this tragic event. Krystara was treated for shrapnel wounds, burns and an ankle injury and was released from the hospital on crutches. Karen had shrapnel wounds on one leg and one ankle, requiring two surgeries to repair. She was released from the hospital on Thursday, but is still unable to walk without assistance. Ron suffered an arterial bleed in his left leg, causing considerable muscle and nerve damage. Ron is scheduled for his third surgery on Friday and there is no timetable for his release.

The Brassards were enjoying a beautiful day at a historic event and awaiting their friend Carmen at the finish line. As it turned out, it will be the darkest day in their lives and one which will never be forgotten. Their road to recovery will be long and painful.
