Last marathon bombing victim to leave Spaulding
Mark Fucarile is finally heading home.
The Stoneham resident, who was severely injured in the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, will be discharged from Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital on Tuesday, WHDH reports.
He is the last of the victims to return home.
Fucarile spent 45 days at Massachusetts General Hospital, followed by 24 at Spaulding, where he worked on recovering from second- and third-degree burns, severely injured legs (one of which had to be amputated) and a shattered eardrum.
“It’s tough,” he told NECN. “I mean, real tough. I don’t want to be there, you know? Like anybody, but you have to be.”
To contribute to Mark’s recovery, a fundraiser has been set up at www.gofundme.com/marcfucarile.
