Hon­ors Half-Sis­ter Car­rie’s Mem­ory

Closer Weekly - - News Now -

NEARLY TWO YEARS af­ter Car­rie Fisher’s un­timely death, her le­gacy lives on as her half-sis­ter, ac­tress Joely Fisher (Ellen), is start­ing a char­ity to con­tinue her work help­ing peo­ple strug­gling with ad­dic­tion is­sues. “I’m putting to­gether the Fisher Foun­da­tion, which will be sup­port for peo­ple who can’t af­ford to go to re­hab,” Joely told Closer at Project An­gel Food’s re­cent An­gel Awards in LA. “There are so many peo­ple who are on the edge of that mo­ment that if they had money, they might ac­tu­ally get into re­hab.” Joely, who wrote a fam­ily mem­oir, Grow­ing Up Fisher: Mus­ings, Mem­o­ries, and Misad­ven­tures, says, “I feel Car­rie around all the time. Grief is an in­ter­est­ing thing — it washes over you. The show must go on!”

Joely and Car­rie had the same fa­ther, Ed­die Fisher; Joely’s mom is ac­tress Con­nieStevens.
