As You See It

Family benefit

To the Editor, In 1986, Jim Broeniman graduated from Plymouth High School. After graduation, he joined the US Army and served in Germany as a medic. He

married Amie Matson from Beaver Dam. They currently live in Appleton with their three daughters. Jim and Amie have overcome many challenges, yet have continued to raise their three daughters in a loving and caring home environment.

Now, however, Amie and Jim are facing yet another challenge and need your help. Two of Amie and Jim’s girls have significant physical and cognitive challenges. Delaney,

sixteen, has Cornelia de Lange Syndrome. Emma, thirteen, has a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis. Five years ago, Emma lost her lower right leg and wears a prosthesis. If this family had not weathered enough of life’s obstacles, Amie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012. She subsequently had a double mastectomy and underwent chemotherapy. Recently, the doctors informed her that she has stage four cancer in her bones and she is undergoing chemotherapy yet again. Amie also has signifi cant osteoporosis and experiences the problems and limitations that come along with that disease. The Broenimans have been known to give back to the community whenever they can. When their oldest daughter, Allie, was only twelve years old, she founded a non-profit organization called ‘Operation a Sister’s Love’. Inspired by her sister Emma’s many hospital stays, she started making and delivering tied fleece blankets to children who are sick or hospitalized. ‘Operation a Sister’s Love’, under Allie’s leadership, has provided over 1100 blankets to these children. Allie is currently a sophomore at UW Oshkosh and comes home as often as she is able to help with the family’s needs Despite all this, this family maintains a sense of humor. They find humor in the little things in life even though their troubles are not humorous. Emma has dealt with her many challenges much better than most adults ever could. If you have ever met her, you would agree that she is a super young lady with so much to give! Emma loves to write poetry, make duct tape projects and play cribbage! There will be a benefit for the Broeniman Family on Saturday November 7th, 2015 at Fudgieknuckles in Glenbeulah, WI. There will be food, music and raffles throughout the day beginning at 11:00 a.m. The Broeniman family would love to have you join us for some good conversation, great food, awesome raffles and fun music brought to you by Doc Mock and others. The benefit is being put on by Jim’s sister, Barb (Broeniman) Limberg and friends of the family! Barb Limberg
