Tera (Walz) Ronning's Medical Needs

We have been raised to give more than we take and not to expect more than we earn. We are told to work hard for the things we want and be grateful we have the things we need. We are also told that no one is perfect & to swallow our pride and askfor help when we need it. 

It is at this time that my family comes before you humble and hopeful...

Tera Ronning has been in and out of the hospital for the past 3 years. After 3 (and counting) back surgeries, she is now confined to a wheel chair with no real hope of getting out. Lief and Tera have always worked their butts off to provide for their 3 boys but it is getting more and more difficult with an exorbitant amount of medical bills. Unfortunately with Tera being in a wheelchair full time, (which is not adequate at this time and the updates are very costly), her home has to be renovated to be more accessible. For those who do not know this is a lengthy and costly process.

The boys, John(13), Owen (10), and Luke (7), have been great in helping out anyway they can but it would be nice for them to beable to focus on football and
other activities more suited to their ages.

It isn't often that anyone from our family would ask for help with little to no ability to give back, but here we are... All we can offer is a plan of action & updates of our progress so you know your contribution isn't being put to waste.

The main priority at this point is the wheel chair, followed by bathroom, bedroom, and medical bills.  Tera and Leif's families will be helping with  much of the renovations to help keep the costs down.

Anything helps! Every dollar given is a dollar they didn't have. If you care to please pass this along via any means you choose (facebook, Instagram, twitter,
email, snail mail, pigeons...)

If you have made it this far, even if you are unable to give, THANK YOU for reading and hearing us out.
