Everyone wants to know how Sherie is doing. Please don’t be alarmed if you’ve e-mailed her and received no response. She’s alive and has a sense of humor to prove it. Her health, however, is not in mint condition. She’s fighting very hard, refusing to “throw in the towel” as she says. Right now, though, the cancer is not relenting. Over the past six months, Sherie has been enduring the devastating repercussions of her disease. The past two years have included several different kinds of chemotherapy treatments. None of which have put the disease into remission.
She currently underwent a procedure that may or may not show results. She also just began a new kind of therapy with the pill Tomoxophen. More than anything, we hope that the Tomoxophen will assist in shrinking the tumors which are posing a great deal of pain. In the meantime, Sherie is left with no choice but to take pain meds. So, while her pain is somewhat suppressed, so is her appetite. She is eating. But very little.
Please continue to send her your love. Sending it to her through snail-mail is better than e-mail for right now. Using the computer is a bit frustrating to her. Also, if you’d like to stop by and visit, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays after 11:00am are preferable for the family. Please call Bruce at 503-781-0989 to arrange a visit.
Sherie and the family send their love to all who have been with them over the past five years giving their undying support and care.
