Sheri Bates Medical Recovery Fund

Sheri Bates was the Oolagah/Talala Band Parent who was one of the Critically Injured victims of the Oklahoma State Homecoming Parade Tragedy. She is a wonderful wife to Paul (PJ) and mom to 3 children and was at the parade supporting her daughter who was marching in the parade. This fund is to help in Medical and Travel expenses for her family  because Sheri is in the hospital 2 hours from home and will be at least 10-14 days . Thank you. I and my family have known Sheri  and her husband Paul plus their 3 children for 20 plus years between church and work activities. They are very active in the Oolagah/Talala community and Owasso.  I just want to help them as they have helped and touched the lives of others. Thank you again for blessing this lovely family.
