Sheri's Together In This Fight Fund
Our Mom, Sheri, was diagnosed with Stage 4 bilateral breast cancer a year ago. Further testing revealed cancer in the femur and a tumor through the skull which is inoperable. One small tumor was hidden in an annual mammogram. After an ultrasound, a cyst was found and expelled. The tumor showed on her annual mammogram last year.
After radiation treatment, and 15 tests later, she is on chemo meds daily. Outstanding medical bills that cancer entails, lead us to this request for assistance for one last trip to see her former boss and dear friend, who has also just been diagnosed with Stage 4 bilateral lung cancer.
Our Mom is able to travel at this time, and this trip would be beneficial for her and this dear friend as encouragement for each other in their cancer journey and to see each other one last time. Our Dad could accompany her as well. Our goal is to raise $1500 by July 15th. We kindly ask for your assistance, which would be a blessing for all.
This note is sent with my sincerest heartfelt thanks for helping make a dream a reality. I just returned from my trip to Sun City California to see my former Administrator of the hospital that we worked together for 23 years.
We had so many things to discuss and so many tears to shed, but all in all, it was a wonderful trip, and I was able to help her get out and about again as she had become a sort of recluse with the diagnosis given to her. One of our friends made a reunion of people we worked with from the 80’s and of late before I retired, and she was so happy and animated for that 3 hours. I was renewed myself knowing that people cared to come to this gathering and that they do care, and share, and make sense of this life we are given. They were all so positive that I would see them again maybe next year. I am trying to be positive everyday as well, but it is in God’s hands as we know.
I am just so thankful that you allowed me to have this trip, and I won’t ever forget it. I shared with everyone I saw there just how I was able to come and share this short time with them, and they all said that I have been blessed. I know that as well!
