Kelly Family Fund

$10,915 of $20k goal

Raised by 90 people in 53 months
Brenton Thornicroft   LEXINGTON, MA

In March 2012, the Kelly family was affected by two life-changing tragedies. The father, Bob Kelly, suffered a stroke, leaving him with an undetermined amount of time for rehabilitation. During this period he has been unable to work. Only one week after Bob's stroke, the eldest son, Brandon, was in a severe accident resulting in partial leg amputation. This unfortunate event has left him also unable to work and in need of significant rehabilitation. Bob and Brandon, had been father and son principals of their family business, Advanced Sheet Metal Services, for 15 years, but due to the unfortunate circumstances, have had to make the difficult decision to forgo the business. The family is currently seeking alternative means of financial stability. This fund is to help them get through this lengthy rehabilitation period while they continue to show resilience in the face of mounting medical bills.

Brandon and Bob, you will get through this. You've impacted my life. I'm so glad that I can look back and remember all the fun, meaningful times that I had with you all in my youth. Remember the time when I opened the trunk of my MR2 to reveal a 100lb bag of rice? Oh man!! I had to weigh the car down to get traction in the winter! You guys didn't care. You guys were rolling on the ground!! Bob, I think you cried a little bit. Haha. Without you guys, I wouldn't be the person that I am today.
