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

Cheryl couldn't get her infusion this week, because her platelets were too low when she got her blood tested at CTCA on Monday. 
So, we have made a couple of trips for nothing lately, but we are hoping that her blood draw tomorrow, at home, will allow us to head back to CTCA on Monday - pray for good blood test.
Generally, Cheryl feels OK and can get around the house fine now, without any pain, so we are grateful for this.
