Money stolen: girl’s treatment for Lyme disease in jeopardy
A thief who stole cards full of money meant to help Chelsey Livingston-Rector battle Lyme disease, may have robbed her of the opportunity for treatment.
With only two weeks left to go before her appointment to see a specialist in the United States, Chelsey’s mother, Angela Rector, said they are still $3,000 short of what they need. A big reason she believes they are short is because someone stole a portion of the proceeds from a benefit held at the North End Rec Centre on May 25.
“We had a wonderful turnout and at the end of the night when the money was taken to be counted the girls noticed that there weren’t cards there,” Rector said. “Only two cards were in the box and the girls knew there were more cards there.”
