Welcome to our CaringBridge website for Sheri. We are using this to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
I am sure everyone reading this who knows Sheri personally will have a story come to mind of something sweet, amazing or self-sacrificing Sheri has done for them. Sheri is strong, faith-driven, beautiful, sweet, stubborn and amazingly loving! All of the things that make her who she is are going to lift her through this journey along with all our support.
All of this started on the evening of Saturday, June 3 when a headache, which Sheri had been battling for over a week, peeked in severity. Scott and Sheri went to the ER, thinking that she may have Spinal Meningitis. The doctors investigated the cause through a series of tests; one being an MRI. When the MRI result came back, around 1:00 a.m. Sunday morning, the doctors revealed that they had found a mass in her brain, approximately the size of a lime. Over the next week Sheri had surgery and the tumor was 99% removed and pathology done. The tumor was determined it is a malignant tumor; a glioma, also known as glioblastoma multiforme.
Treatment is taking place through St. Anthony's Hospital in Denver, CO with leading care coming from Duke University. This site will be a support system for Scott, Sheri, and also for their children, Brandon, Jessica and Carter. Keep them all in your hearts, minds and prayers. We will update the journal as regularly as we can to keep you all informed. Thank you all for your fervency in prayer as we battle together for the healing and full recovery of Sheri and her family.
