More fundraising efforts are underway to support a 35 year old Surrey woman fighting for her life in hospital after she was struck by a truck while sitting at a bus stop on her way to work.
Owner of Uptown Dawg Shannon O’Reilly says Kaureen Lamy is a beloved employee whose whole world changed in an instant.
“There she was within a minute, she was sitting down, and now she is fighting for her life, she has lost both of her legs, and I know her family needs some support for her expenses and her rent and things like that, and we just wanted to try and do something.”
O’Reilly says the fundraiser will be held on Sunday July 20th from 12-4pm at the Port Moody location.
The advertisement says “ we want to invite people to come down and for a minimum donation of $25.00 they would receive a BBQ lunch and a bath and nails for their pup! There will be other ways to donate at the fundraiser including an auction.”
The dog groomer was struck on June 30th just before 8am at 148th and 88th avenue in Surrey.
The drivers involved in the crash remained at the scene, but no criminal charges have been laid.
A Go Fund Me page has also raised more than $3000 for the victim.
