Cheryl’s Story

Site created on November 28, 2018

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.  As you may know, after suffering with back pain and nausea for most of the summer, and visiting many doctors and enduring many tests, Cheryl was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.   However, by God's grace, we are fighting, praying for and expecting a complete healing.  

A favorite verse of Cheryl's...

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Other favorite sayings of hers...
"I don't need to be better than anyone else, I just need to be better tomorrow than I am today." 
(Sign on Cheryl's board in her classroom)

"Everybody wants to have friends, its just that, not everybody knows how to be a friend. So be a friend to everybody."  (Cheryl's dad, Jack Stoner)

We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Journal entry by Tom Elliott

This has been a rough day for us.  As we were packing to leave this morning (while I was downstairs getting the luggage cart) Cheryl tripped in the room and fell on her knee.
X-rays revealed no broken bones, but there is quite a bit of swelling, so the Orthopedic Dr wants to do an MRI in the morning just to be safe.  So, we are still in Zion.
On top of that, she has had a lot of vomiting today.  Perhaps that is due to the weeks of radiation and chemo pills - hopefully that gets better tomorrow when she us done with treatments for the week.
Pray for better days this weekend, as this has been a discouraging day.
