Alexa was trapped on the third floor of a multi unit building when an electrical fire started in the early morning hours of September 20, 2013. 10 people lost their homes, but escaped unhurt. Alexa was critically injured. She was airlifted to a burn unit in Syracuse, NY.
The road to recovery will be a long journey for Alexa. Her mother, Sue Limato, lives over 200 miles away from the hospital burn unit in Syracuse. The fund has been established to help the family with expenses.
