Lemonade Stand Fundraiser Being Held to Support Malta Family

posted by WGY News -

There is a glimmer of light for the Broadbent Family, following a tragic loss.

Their son, Eric Edwards, is dead from a fire that destroyed their Malta home this week.

Edwards was one of ten adopted children of the Broadbents, seven of which have significant disabilities.

Chris Casertino from the support organization After The Fire, which is also providing support to the family, says they have more medical needs than most.

She adds that the Broadbents still have three family members in the hospital, and they will need monetary help, and that is going to be their biggest need.

She says they will also need wheelchairs and other medical equipment, once they get home.

Glenn Broadbent was flown to Westchester Medical Center in critical condition.

Janet Broadbent and two other children were taken to Albany Medical Center for treatment.

The community is coming out in many different ways to support the family, including a GoFundMe page.

Five neighborhood families will also be hosting a lemonade stand at 1 Huntington Parkway in Ballston Lake today, starting at 3 P.M.

Cash and gift card donations will also be accepted at the event.
