Dear SMM Family

A few months ago Fr. Paul Vanden Hogen was in contact with a parishioner from our parish who was in need of a kidney transplant. He asked that we make this need known to the parish. At that time this wife and mother chose to remain anonymous. She is still in need of a donor kidney and is seeking people to be tested to see if they are compatible. She has decided to make her name public.

Her name is Sharon Brunner. Sharon is 42 years old and the mother of two children, Miranda age 12 and Alex age 10. Sharon suffers from polycystic kidney disease which is hereditary, so her family is not an option for a transplant. Since finding out about her kidney disease Sharon’s husband Mark has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

Please keep this family in your prayers and if you would be willing to be tested to see if you are a match for Sharon call the parish office at 715-258-2088 and we will put you in touch with Sharon.
