Shari Oulman is a strong and compassionate woman, a loving mother and wife, a cherished daughter, and a beautiful soul.  She was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma 17 years ago, July of 1999 and claimed the victory. Fast forward to present day, Shari is now battling cancer for the second time. It has been challenging, exhausting, and painful as her body is responding differently to the chemotherapy and radiation treatments. At the final end of her treatments, Shari was only able to celebrate for a short time, for it was then she learned the cancer had moved to her brain. Tuesday, September 20th, Shari will undergo brain surgery to remove the lesion. She will also be needing radiation treatments once more.

As her fight continues, Shari remains unwavering in the fight. Her daughter Sarah and husband Lance as well as her family members and friends remain by her side with prayer and emotional support. However, medical bills pile up quickly, and financial stress is a large burden. We are looking to combat that financial stress by organizing this campaign.

If you can give, any amount will help! Please share this campaign with everyone you know. The more this campaign is shared the more opportunities there are for people to give. If you cannot give in a monetary fashion, we encourage you to pray for Shari, her family and for complete healing!

Right now Shari is enjoying the beauty and unmatched perfection of Heaven. Shari went home to Heaven at 8:15pm Saturday, March 18th. We are all grieving and missing her, but have peace in knowing we will be reunited one day.

I intend to write in more depth in the coming days, but I would ask for prayers of comfort for Shari's husband Lance, and daughter Sarah as well as Shari's parents George and Kathy, and brothers Shannon, Stephen, and Seth.

Thank you for all of you who have been so instrumental in supporting Shari through donations, prayers, and gifts. This coming together in community is a beautiful representation of unconditional love and we appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts.

Shari is struggling and fighting hard. Your prayers are needed now more than ever. My Uncle George (Shari's father) just posted this:

Shari is really struggling today and had a very rough night. Please pray for her and the family today. I have begged God to heal her here, and He still could, but He may want to heal her there. If that be the case, we ask for God's grace and mercy on her and the family, especially for Lance and Sarah. Thank you faithful prayer warriors.

There are few words I can add to this post which adequately sum up the twists of feelings we are all experiencing right now, especially those experienced by Shari and her immediate family. This post is by far the hardest to digest. Please, continue to pray and support Shari in any way you are able. We love you Shari! Thank you for being the greatest inspiration to so many of us!

Here is Shari's latest post:

It was another long, emotionally and physically challenging day at Moffitt! I finished the whole brain and left chest wall radiation. We then had a meeting with Moffitt's Specialty Care and Pain doctors along with a social worker to discuss my end of life care. They told us all about Hospice and then had me look over some consent forms for them to know my wishes. We still need to meet with a local lawyer to get our own "official documents" drawn up for Lance and Sarah! We aren't giving up by any means and I'm still asking/begging God for a miracle but my health is declining so quickly that they are afraid my time is getting less and less! I won't allow fear and worry to consume my daily thoughts and steal my joy! God has my life in his hands and only He knows and controls when I leave this world! However, I want my home and family as prepared as ever for the possibility that it might be sooner than we all are praying for! I will update when I can but feel very overwhelmed with the need to accomplish so much with limited time restrictions and energy! We love you all and can't thank each of you enough for everything you're doing for us! Please continue to pray for healing (if that's God's will) and for all of us as we are trying to allow all this news to process! Love you all ❤️
