Two Marathon Bombing Survivors Develop Lasting Bond

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

On the evening before the anniversary of the day that changed their lives, Roseann Sdoia and Heather Abbott met up for dinner. The two women had been acquainted before shrapnel shredded the lower part of Abbott’s left leg and most of Sdoia’s right leg.

Now they’re fast friends who push and inspire each other, offer support and counseling. From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Martha Bebinger of WBUR reports the close bonds among many of the bombing survivors, first responders and their families are a reminder that today’s anniversary is mixed.
