Sharry's Cancer Support Fund

Our friend Sharry was diagnosed with breast cancer in September of 2017.  After she found a lump she was quickly tested and found to have an aggressive form of breast cancer.  Chemo started on September 20, 2017.  Sharry has had a difficult time with the powerful chemo and although they did change to a different form of chemo that she has tollerated slightly better, she has been admitted during every cycle of chemo for pain, nausea, and fluids.  But Sharry is a fighter! She does what she needs to do with a smile on her face.  Everyone who knows Sharry, knows that she's always smiling.  Sharry is always happy to see people she knows and loves and is always happy to help in every way she can to whoever she can.  
Sharry continued to work until recently.  It was discussed with her doctors that it would be best for her to stay home and take care of herself while struggling to feel ok to function.  Her children Jennifer and Michael are her rocks and help to take care of her at home. With the extra unexpected expenses of paying for doctors, hospitals, and prescriptions, it's been difficult.  Now she is on disability which puts her pay to 65% of her usual pay.  Sharry is having her last scheduled chemo on Monday Feb 19, 2018 and then will have a mastectomy on Friday March 9th.
Please consider donating as much as you're able to our friend Sharry to help in this difficult time.  Her journey in the last 6 months has been something that noone should have to endure.  We're hoping that in a few months she can be mostly recovered and be able to get back to normal life.
Thank you so much!
