CLEVELAND -- Here's an update on a story about a Cleveland woman facing an incredible month of hardships. Now a fund has been set up to help Loriann Forsythe.
Loriann's battling multiple sclerosis and still grieving for a her daughter Melanie who died from a defective heart.

Last month, an arsonist torched her house and destroyed almost all her possessions.

The Red Cross moved her to another place and helped her buy a few things but robbers stole it all when she was in South Point Hospital for tests.

Those tests show she has stomach cancer -- and one more thing -- she faced possible eviction because of confusion over who's paying her rent.

"It seems like everytime I get two feet forward, someone knocks me back eight or nine," Forsythe says.

If you want to help Forsythe, you can send donations to the:

Loriann Forsythe Fund.
Kinsman Keycenter
14006 Kinsman Rd.
Cleveland, Ohio 44120

Or, you can drop off donations at any greater Cleveland KeyBank branch.
