NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — Survivors of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings are preparing for this month's closing of the charity that raised millions to help them heal.

One Fund Boston will stop accepting online donations Monday after having distributed nearly $80 million in donations to the families of the three people killed and more than 260 injured in the attack.

Heather Abbott, a Rhode Islander who lost part of her left leg, hopes investing her donations wisely will help cover her prosthetic costs for the rest of her life.

Rebekah DiMartino, of Texan, who had her left leg amputated in November, says she didn't qualify for additional payments like other amputees because her operation came too late.

Instead, she expects her insurance will cover some costs and the rest she'll pay out of pocket.
