WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A fundraiser for a North Carolina woman beset by a series of tragedies has raised nearly $20,000 in one week.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports 54-year-old Lori Williams was hospitalized with two shattered vertebrae from a Nov. 26 car accident following her uncle’s funeral when she learned that her house had been burned to the ground on Dec. 6.

Williams says all her possessions were lost in the fire, including those of her late husband, Eddie, who died of brain cancer 12 years ago. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

She lived there with her 22-year-old daughter, who has sickle cell anemia.

Williams works as a product-compliance specialist at Qorvo. Her manager, John Sharp, started a fund to replace Williams‘ clothes that has amassed $19,800 as of Wednesday.
