“I thought I was home free when I was blessed with four healthy, beautiful children.
I never thought about how life could change in the blink of an eye.” – Sharon D., Brenda’s mother

Brenda was in a tragic accident when she was 2 years old.
On a sunny day in July, she became trapped at the bottom of a pool.
After being pulled out and given CPR, she remained in a coma for several months.
Miraculously she survived, however, she had severe brain damage
and would need 24/7 specialized care for the rest of her life.
A few years later, Brenda’s mother Sharon brought her to Marklund,
where she has lived and thrived for 43 years.

Because of generous people like you, Brenda and others like her at
Marklund – some of whom were born with their disabilities,
and others who suffered tragic accidents – are receiving top-notch therapies,
interacting with friends, enjoying outings, and being cared for
by compassionate and knowledgeable caregivers and nurses.

“I give because those before me gave; someone else made sure Marklund
was there for my daughter. I can do no less for someone else’s child.” – Sharon D.
