As a Burlington woman fights for her
life, the community is coming to her aid financially.
Colleen Scarola, 36, remains in
intensive care at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington suffering from severe
head trauma. Police say she was struck in the head with a baseball bat nine
days ago at her home in the Old North End. Scarola's husband, James, is charged
with attempted murder.
Colleen Scarola's parents, sister and
brother-in-law have started an online fundraising campaign to help pay for her
care and to support her two children. As of Tuesday morning, more than $46,000
has been pledged.
