Friends Raising $750,000 for North End Woman Injured in Boston Marathon Bombings

Friends of a North End woman severely injured in the Boston Marathon bombings last week are hoping to raise $ 750,000 to help her with hospital costs and other needs during her recovery. According to a post on, North End resident Roseann Sdoia had attended the Red Sox game at Fenway Park on Monday, April 15 and had walked over to the finish line at Copley Square to watch the rest of the marathon when she was injured by the explosions. “Roseann suffered serious injuries as a result of the explosions and has lost a leg above the knee,” wrote Christine Rousseau Hart, who attended high school and college with Sdoia. Hart posted a photo on the site that shows Sdoia watching the race in front of the restaurant Forum, standing three people away from eight-year-old Martin Richard of Dorchester, who was one of three people killed in the bombings. Sdoia reportedly has undergone several surgeries for her injuries. “It will be a long journey of recovery, both physically and emotionally, but Roseann is a fighter. She has an infectious personality and loves Boston with all her heart. She is a true Bostonian, living in the city and being one of the most loyal sports fans I know,” Hart wrote on Hart has set a fundraising goal of $ 750,000 and as of Monday at 11:30 a.m. had raised $ 208,676. She encouraged people to donate in memory of a loved one “whose name will help inspire Roseann through her treatment and recovery.” All gifts donated through the site will be transferred to Enterprise Bank for Sdoia to use for any expenses incurred because of the bombings. Donations can also be sent, with checks made payable to the “Roseann Sdoia Recovery Fund,” to Enterprise Bank, 1168 Lakeview Ave., Dracut, MA 01826. South End Patch
