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!

GoFundMe campaign to help Kawartha Lakes woman undergoing leg amputation

A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help a City of Kawartha Lakes woman who will be undergoing a leg amputation later this month. Beth Collins of Fenelon Falls will face surgery on May 23 — the end result following a workplace accident in August 2016 when the forklift she was on failed. “I just remember looking down and seeing my foot hanging off,” she said. “We were about 20 feet in the air and the hydraulics let go and we just slammed to the ground.”
