A GoFundMe campaign has raised more than $6,000 for a longtime Alexandria activist in need of medical care.
Katy Cannady recently fell in her Alexandria home and needs help with caregivers to get her back on her feet over the next few months.
Former Alexandria Vice Mayor Andrew MacDonald launched the campaign. There were nearly 50 donors as of Tuesday, and, he says, every little bit helps.
“I’ve never done this before, never used that (GoFundMe),” MacDonald told ALXnow. “Financially, she needs the assistance to be able to pay for this little extra bit of care. But it’s been very heartwarming to see her friends and neighbors contributing. It’s helped her a great deal.”
Cannady, who has worked for years against waterfront development in Old Town, is active with the Federation of Civic Associations and is a member of the board of the Environmental Council of Alexandria. After her fall, she was treated at the Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital and arrived back home on Jan. 23.
MacDonald also said that he and Cannady’s friends are filing paperwork to get her into the Goodwin House senior living community.
