Baneck Inspires Others

I went from being a big sister to being a mom in under one day”  That’s the stark reality of families affected by tragic house fires. We were honored, Billi Jo Baneck, who lived through this experience, shared her personal story of tragedy and triumph at The Avenues Women’s Wellness & Inspiration Luncheon held on May 22, at the Grand Meridian in Appleton.

This remarkable young lady gives of her time and talent to help disaster victims through their darkest days as she knows the pain, sorrow and emptiness of losing her parents and little brother. Surrounded by her sister Katie, an extended family and friends, she shared her strength gained through the experience. We were all touched and inspired to give of ourselves to make a stronger community.
