NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J. — More than $67,000 had been raised of Thursday night on a GoFundMe page launched by North Arlington resident Diana Iacono to help her brother who lost his leg in an accident.
The page was created on Jan. 7 and since then, more than 570 people have donated money — setting Iacono only $8,000 away from her goal in helping Steven Alves of Harrison get a prosthetic leg.
"My brother is a sweet, thoughtful, and caring person that is always willing to help his friends, family, or even a stranger," Iacono wrote on the GoFundMe page.
"He is full of life and I want him to continue doing the things that make him the happiest."
