NAPLES, Fla.- Builders and volunteers give home makeover to World War II widow living with M.S.
Janice Bronstein is confined to a wheelchair and has been dependent on others for even the smallest tasks since her late husband's passing four years ago.
The Collier Building Industry Association saw her need and what started as a request to help build a ramp, turned into a full-scale $40,000 renovation.
"i'm probably just going to look out every day and keep discovering more things that are here. It's going to be fun, like a treasure hunt," Bronstein said.
Several local agencies helped make it possible, including the title sponsor, Waste Management of Florida, who donated $10,000 to the project.
"It's worth a million dollars. It's just wonderful to give her the freedom that she needs to live in her house to be efficient, be able to get in and out of her kitchen, and be able to use the bathroom," Larry Berg of Waste Management said.
Contractors with Lazer Construction drew up the plans for Bronstein's kitchen and master bathroom.
"Just being able to see Janice use her home better than what she was able to, it speaks for itself," Chris Alley said.
Bronstein is an inspiration to many in the community.
In fact she's even authored a book titled I Have MS, It Doesn't Have Me.
