Sheila Smyth Vanacore

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using this site to keep family and friends updated in one place. Our beautiful sister Sheila has been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, which has spread to her spleen, chest cavity and neck.  There has also been some damage to her heart.  We are waiting to hear if it has spread to her bone marrow.  For the next 6 months, Sheila will begin an aggressive regimen of chemo-therapy every 2 weeks. 

For those of you who know Sheila, she is a  beautiful, loving and strong woman, who loves her family, especially her husband Chad and their two adorable children, Bella (age 10) and Ronan (age 4).   Sheila has a long road ahead, but with the love of her family and friends, she will win her fight against this cancer!

You are welcome to send Sheila positive words of encouragement to help her through her treatment.  The more messages the better to keep her beautiful Irish eyes smiling!   As we get more information about her condition, I will post updates, so please visit this site to stay up to date.  We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
