If you’re from the Jersey Shore, Miss Liberty is as common as pork roll. Well, Miss Liberty now needs the Jersey Shore community’s help.

According to an organized GoFundMe page Miss Liberty is suffering from Stage 4 cancer and is reaching out for help battling the disease.

The website blog states in part, “Sondra Fortunato, otherwise known as Miss Liberty USA, has been a fixture in the Jersey Shore for decades. She is known as a long-time fixture in parades, graduations, and charity events. This former playboy bunny, model, and media personality has accumulated friends all over the world. She has also unfortunately developed Stage 4 cancer, which has destroyed her left eye and threatens her life. The expenses associated with her treatment have resulted in the loss of her home. She still needs more surgery to treat this very serious illness. If you’ve ever gotten a smile out of Sondra or her trademark sticker-covered car, any little bit would let her know that she has not been forgotten.

You can donate to the GoFundMe, organized by Miss Fortunato herself, here.


A fixture in Toms River.

Furthermore, if you live in Toms River especially, you know Miss Liberty. No matter your age, you’ve seen her. Also,  if you are old enough, she’s somewhat of a self-made legend. From her wedding-type gowns to her tiara, to her car…Oh, that car!

In its heyday it was adorned with so many signs, you had to wonder how a driver could even see out of the driver’s side window! She was at the Shop Rite, at your favorite Italian restaurant, and at every event or parade in town.

Moreover, she may belong to all of the USA and more specifically the Jersey Shore, however, Miss Liberty is Toms River through and through. With that said, if you can find it in your heart to help this sweet, eccentric lady out, please donate. Cancer sucks. However, we can do our part to help our friends in the community beat it, one donation at a time.


Good Luck Miss Liberty!
