Support for Madison and Matthew

Donation protected
On Monday, May 2, 2016, Madison and Matthew lost their mother , Wesley Fletcher, to a brutally violent crime.  Unfortunately, thechildren were still in the house and heard everything, saw the aftermath and were the ones to have to call 911.

We are Lee Fleishman and Wendy McFadden.  Wendy was Wesley's sister.  As their Aunt and Uncle, we were the ones that Wesley wanted to care for her children in such a tragic event.  We are more than willing to take them in and will do everything in our power to provide them with a life that Wesley would approve of.  The Crime Victim Center of Chester County is helping us with counseling for the children which we have already taken advantage of.

Wendy and I both have stable jobs with decent pay, but we are wholly unprepared for such an event.  We need some funds for both immediate needs of the children as well as wanting to start a college fund.  We have some savings set aside for our younger son, but were not expecting or prepared to have teenagers so suddenly.

We need to purchase things like additional beds, furniture, clothing, tuition to continue Madison's dance classes, uniforms and equipment for sports, etc.

We are fighting for custody of the children to keep them safe, so legal fees may also be a factor at some point.  We intend to pay for this as much as possible and keep the funds being donated for the children's well-being.

We have been asked by many people how they can help the children and the family.  It is truly heartwarming to see the outpouring of support from the communities that Wesley and the children belonged to.  Every dontation will help and is immensely appreciated.
