Help Aunt Sherry Rebuild

Hi, I'm Brooke Egelston! I am starting this fundraiser to try to bring some relief to my aunt after a traumatic event that left much of her personal property damaged.

On the evening of July 15, a man broke into my aunt's house in Guthrie, OK. He hid behind a curtain in her bedroom with a hatchet, waiting for her to come in. When she did, he jumped out at her, threatened to kill her, and chased her out of the house. Luckily, the neighbors were home, saw the altercation and called 911. The man ran back into her home and barricaded himself, leading to a four-hour stand-off with police. In the process, he caused damage to her home and to many of her personal belongings.

My family and I are grateful for everyone who has already shown their support. We believe that this GoFundMe will be the most efficient way to take care of my aunt at this time. Anything you can contribute would be a huge help! We plan to use the funds to help replace essential belongings and take some stress off of her as she processes this event. Thank you!
