Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

August 26th, Sheree was being seen at the U of M for a recurring issue. Upon doing blood work doctors noticed something else was going on. After a week of many tests, scans, and biopsies; they discovered she has Acute Myeloid Leukemia. 

Sheree has been on oral chemotherapy medications for a few days and is starting IV chemotherapy tonight, September 7th. She will remain in the hospital for an estimated 4-6 weeks during treatment. This will be beneficial to control any side effects that she experiences and will be monitored closely. 

She only gets two visitors a day in the hospital. She is able to go outside to visit with people. Please check with her before showing up to ensure she is feeling up to visitors and hasn’t already met her limit for the day. She will be very susceptible to illness because of the chemotherapy. Because of this we ask that if you are ill or around someone who is, please don’t visit. ALL VISITORS MUST BE MASKED whether visiting inside or outside. We need to keep her as healthy as possible.

Thank you for your understanding, support, love, and encouragement during this time.
