BOSTON (WHDH) -
A group of marathon bombing victims gathered in Boston Friday to express their frustration with how the One Fund distributes money.
The victims suffered unseen injuries such as hearing loss and traumatic brain injuries, but have been refused financial support from the One Fund.
One of the victims, a doctor from Alabama, finished the marathon just three seconds before the first blast.
“From the One Fund community, all we are asking for is for you to treat us all as individuals. We all have serious medical conditions that will affect us for the rest of our lives,” bombing victim Dr. Scott Weisberg said.
The group of victims hoped the One Fund would change its requirements to offer financial support for their "invisible" injuries.
The One Fund said it was investing in specialized medical services to help these type of victims and hoped that it would help them move forward.
