It is with sadness that I report to you that Roseann Sdoia , a colleague from National Development and member of RHA, was among those seriously injured by the second bomb during the Boston Marathon.

She has had three surgeries since the blast and her right leg has been amputated above the knee. Her life will be forever changed. Roseann is simply one of the nicest and hardest working people we know and this is truly a tragedy. President Obama is reported to have visited Roseann yesterday and she showed her strong and positive spirit.

If you are able to do so we ask that you make a donation to the link below. This has been set up specifically for her. Please feel free to pass this on to anyone that may have known Roseann or might like to make a contribution.

The attached photo was provided to me by National Development. Look to the right of the mailbox in the attached pic, the blond woman with a gray vest on, facing away from the mailbox, is Roseann. The bag circled was believed to hold one of the bombs, this pic was taken shortly before it exploded and we believe she was on the bomb side of the mailbox when it went off.

Please keep Roseann and all those that were affected by this tragedy in your thoughts.
