Help Sharon Bronnenberg Rebuild

Sharon and Michael Bronnenberg bought their beloved farm home approximately 40 years ago.  They raised their kids there, rescued tons of animals, held all kinds of get togethers, and always welcomed everyone and anyone.  They put their blood, sweat, & tears into that home as it was a fixer upper....their, "money pit" as joker by them on occasion.   They finally had it how they wanted it and were just starting to get to enjoy it and then Michael got diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2013.  This was likely due to him being an Army Ranger in Vietnam and his known exposure to agent orange.  Michael succumbed to bladder cancer 2 years ago, in May 2015, and this has been devastating.  Now, to make things even worse for Sharon, her beloved home and pets all burned in a horrible blaze on June 28th.  Sharon is physically safe but everything is gone; her precious family heirlooms, antiques she and Michael worked so hard to collect and to beautify, and worst of all, her animals.  The dogs were Sharon's babies and she is completely devastated. 
If you know the Bronnenbergs, you know that Sharon and Michael are the kindest, most hardworking people there are.  You would also know that neither of them ever had an easy time asking for help or even admitting that they need it.  That's where we have stepped in to help Sharon.  
They've both dedicated their lives to helping others and have consistently dealt with tough times.  Sharon herself has battled cancer twice.  How much more can one person take?  
Any money raised from this campaign will go straight to Sharon, to help her rebuild her home and her life.  Anything that you can give is greatly appreciated and will mean so much.  Prayers are greatly appreciated as well.  Thank you all so much.
