Fundraiser launched for pregnant woman who lost husband in Westwood fire

WESTWOOD, Mass. (WHDH) – Family and friends of a pregnant woman who lost her husband Wednesday night in a house fire in Westwood are raising money to help her rebuild her life.

Mike Lennon, 47, died in the fire that destroyed his home on Tamarack Road. The roof of the home collapsed in two different places, according to firefighters.

Meg Lichtenstein, a woman who works with Lennon’s wife Lisa at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, said the couple were newlyweds and expecting a baby girl in May. She started a GoFundMe campaign to help Lisa Lennon and her daughter.

“As Lisa rushed to her husband’s side, she received the worst news an expectant mother could possible hear; her husband did not make it. Lisa and Mike were newlyweds and were overjoyed to be expecting a baby girl,” wrote Lichtenstein on the GoFundMe page.

More than $15,000 has been raised so far for funeral arrangements, housing, and baby necessities.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
