Cheryl was the most incredible woman I have ever met. She was stubborn, tenacious, driven and most importantly my mom. She loved fiercely and put everything she had into everything she did. She taught me how to love unselfishly and how to have grace and faith when you had nothing left. She was a giver by nature and was the best kind nurse. Her empathy and love for others was a rare gift and one that we all adored and beyond miss. Mom fought her battle with cancer for 19 months. It was never easy but despite how hard things got, she never gave up. She always said that if she couldn't save herself, that hopefully her fight could help save someone else. So that is exactly what I want to do. In honor of mom, I want to do everything I can to help ensure that one day, families will never again have to experience the pain of this disease.
Thank you all for loving my mom.
