Sharon Budd is a very special person in so many people's lives. She has the ability to befriend anyone and always does. Her smile, contageous laughter, and hilarious stories and jokes are enough to bring sunshine to anyone's day. 

Sharon, her husband Randy, and her daughter Kaylee were driving to New York City on Thursday, July 10th when an unimaginable act of violence and stupidity was committed. Sharon was hit by a boulder thrown from an overpass while Kaylee was at the wheel. The boulder struck her in the face, causing severe damage. It is a miracle that Kaylee was able to get the car stopped safely. Kaylee has been so strong...as have Randy, Luke, James, and Joey. It's the kind of strength they learned from Sharon when she fought and BEAT breast cancer 15 years ago. They are supporting Sharon now as she fights for her life at the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pennsylvania. Sharon remains in critical condition after having emergency brain surgery to allow her brain to swell. 

Now, let's come together in love and support for the incredible Sharon Budd and her family. Sharon is and has always been a fighter. She has a long road to recovery ahead of her and if we can make that road just a bit more manageable for her and her family, let's do it!

Thank YOU for all of the wonderful support and pledges that have come in for Sharon Budd and the Budd family over the past week!  Because of generosity from individuals and families all over North America -- we have met our posted goal of $25,000.
Since we created this fund last week, we have learned more about the long road that Sharon faces over the next year or two to fully recover.  Late last week Sharon endured a 13.5 hour surgery...and there willl be more.  Accordingly, we have decided that it is necessary to raise our goal to $50,000 so that we can truly make a difference in helping the Budd family attempt to meet the escalating costs that they will be facing in the future.
We are so grateful for your generous donation...and ask you to consider sharing this page through Facebook and other social media outlets so that others can also help.
There is so much good in our world.  YOU are an example. :)
