STORY BEHIND THE CAUSE:
In March 2012, the Kelly family of Wilmington, MA was affected by two life-changing tragedies. The father, Bob Kelly, suffered a stroke, leaving him with an undetermined amount of time for rehabilitation. During this period he has been unable to work. Only one week after Bob's stroke, the eldest son, Brandon, was in a severe accident resulting in partial leg amputation, leaving him also unable to work and in need of significant rehabilitation. Bob and Brandon had been father and son principals of their family business, Advanced Sheet Metal Services, for 15 years, but due to the unfortunate circumstances, have had to make the difficult decision to forgo the business. They are currently seeking alternative means of supporting their family. Monica, devoted wife and mother, had dedicated herself to the passion of the business as a principal as well, but is now focused on supporting Bob and Brandon’s recovery while too seeking work to support the family. Our benefit and online efforts are in hopes of lifting up this special family in their time of great need. Thank you for your support!
