Fundraiser for local woman

Date: 05/14/2018 | Source: http://globalnews.ca

A GoFundMe campaign has been launched for a local woman whose leg will be amputated next week. Beth Collins has had many surgeries trying to save the leg after it was horribly injured during a workplace accident. Global News reported, "The funds will help support Collins as the recovery requires a prosthetic, therapy and home renovations. Home insurance and Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) payments won’t cover it all." If you have anything to give, follow the link!
