PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- For anyone devastated by tragedy, it can be too difficult to relive those moments. For Boston bombing victim, Karen Rand, rising up from the experience is the only thing to do... especially with support from the community rallying around her.
A buffet dinner and night of entertainment on Saturday, including comedy from George Hamm, and music by DJ Bill Young, helped raised money for her new home.
Community members are building Rand a handicap accessible home, and helping to defray the costs of her rehabilitation.
Rand professes to someday walk again.
