Terry Renecker

I have to tell you about my friend Terry, breast cancer survivor, and one of the most giving, amazing women of our community. She works at the Mert-Armstrong Center in the downtown area, helping members of the Mental Health Association and countless homeless people.

She also takes them on outings all over the community – they do everything from attend the Redhawks, to volunteering their time for other needy people at the food shelters. Today, I learned she is hosting a steak dinner. This is what she commented on her...

Besides, she brings endless Joy to my life also. Husband

Irma Ciber

Irma Ciber is not only my sister, nor a strong and ambitious person, but she is my mother figure. Growing up, coming from a war torn country, losing our mother to kidney failure from third degree burns at the age of 9 and 3, and being shifted from one country (Bosnia) to another (Italy) by ourselves, she was always my rock. From being placed in a hospital due to 3rd degree burns, with no family members around nor the ability to speak Italian, to being adopted by total strangers, never did I have to worry if we were going to be okay because I knew my sister would find a way.
