The horror community isn’t just a community but also a family, and one of our own needs a helping hand this week. Best known to horror fans for playing Elaine Parker, heroine Kristen Parker’s mother, in A Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors and A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Master, actress Brooke Bundy has become the target of a financial scam.
Fellow Elm Street alum Amanda Wyss explains, “A friend from the Nightmare On Elm Street family, Brooke Bundy, was the victim of a financial scam aimed at the elderly. They took all of her money. I know these are trying times for so many. Any little bit will help her, if you are able.”
For those who are indeed able to help, Brooke Bundy’s daughter Tiffany Helm, who played Violet in Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, has started a fundraiser over on Go Fund Me to provide assistance to her mother, explaining what happened in further detail.
Helm writes, “My 78 year old mom and grandmother of our two kids, just became the victim of a crime that targets the elderly. She is unharmed physically, but her savings was wiped out. She has always been a worker and a strong community member. Due to covid, she lost her part time job and has to rely on her fixed income.
“She has two rescue dogs and a kitty to take care of. The high cost of living in the city coupled with the pandemic has made this very frightening and stressful for her. I asked her if she wanted a go fund me started for her to try and recoup some of her losses. She was hesitant at first because she has always been super independent. Due to covid, travelling to assist her is incredibly challenging for our family, so we agreed that this might be the best option to help her with basic needs.”
Head over to Go Fund Me to lend a hand, if you’re able to do so.
