Liseth Pérez Almeida has been directly affected by the explosion that leveled two buildings in East Harlem on Wednesday.
Her husband of 8 years, Andreas Panagopoulos, 43, is one the fatalities.
Liseth, a Life & Style Editor at El Diario/La Prensa, also lost all her posessions in the deadly blast.
In a sign of support, the NAHJ chapter in New York has started a fundraising campaign to help her through such a difficult time.
