June Anne Brunner of Potosi, Wisconsin


In April 2008, my mother, June Anne Brunner, fell and broke her leg. She had surgery in a Wisconsin hospital to support the bone. The surgical wound became infected with MRSA, and had the whole family scared. She took IV antibiotics twice per day for 4-6 weeks. The medicine hurt her stomach and caused additional pain that was so hard for her to bear at age 77. She died shortly thereafter on April 17, 2008.
