Four-legged friends help Surrey bus crash victim
VANCOUVER — Four-legged friends are stepping up to raise money for Kaureen Lamy, who was critically injured in a crash at a Surrey Bus Stop on June 30.
Lamy was waiting for her bus, when witnesses say a collision between a pick-up truck and van sent the truck through the bus stop, hitting Lamy and another pedestrian. She lost both her legs below the knees, a spleen and a kidney and is currently in a medically induced coma, with a long recovery ahead of her. She is a groomer at Uptown Dawg in Port Moody, and this weekend her co-workers and canine clients are doing what they can to ease her financial burden.
“She’s made quite an impact since she’s been here,” Shannon O’Reilly of Uptown Dawg told Global News. “She’s just a really positive, lovely person.”
For $25 dollars a ticket, the dog parlor is holding a dog wash BBQ, where people can bring their dogs for a bath and nail grooming while enjoying chips and a hot dog outside, along with a silent auction, draws and prizes.
“I’m so thankful and I don’t know how to express it,” said Lamy’s mother, Johanne Michelin.
Organizers are hoping the fundraiser will bring in enough money to help with her medical needs and other bills. It takes place July 19, from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. at Uptown Dawg, 2615 Murray St. in Port Moody.
