Real Housewives of New York star Aviva Drescher has reached out to the victims of Monday’s bombing at the Boston Marathon.
The 43-year-old, who had her left leg amputated after a farming accident when she was 6 years old, said she wanted to help those who lost their limbs in the explosions.
“To anyone who has suffered limb loss, I am here for information and guidance,” Drescher told Celebrity Magnet‘s Tom Murro. “I would love to talk with anyone, listen to their story and give any advice or support they need. This is a vile tragedy, but a time to unite with compassion.”
Several celebrities have sent their thoughts and prayers to the city of Boston, including Conan O’Brien, who grew up in Boston and still has family in the city.
“First, I did wanna start by mentioning what an upsetting and sad day it has been … Boston is my home town, it’s where I grew up, and it’s where my family lives,” O’Brien said. “So I just wanted to take a moment to say that, like everyone here, my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Boston and everybody who’s been affected by this absolutely senseless act.”
Similarly, Boston Red Sox players — who had just finished their game against the Tampa Bay Rays shortly before the bombing — have shown their support on social media networks, as well as Bruins and Celtics players. Both teams had their Monday night games canceled in the wake of the tragedy.
Three people –including an 8-year-old boy — were killed in the bombing, and over 100 more people were injured, some critically. At this time, there are no suspects.
