The Story

The Sherman Family has been hit with the heartbreaking news that 5 year old Riley has cancer.

Many of you have asked how to help - and as much as they dislike asking for help or money, this is the easiest way for people to assist.

Funds are and will be needed for medical bills, meals, gas, lodging, etc

Thank you in advance from the Sherman's!

Rest in peace, sweet angel.
Riley Rose Sherman 7/7/11 - 4/13/18

At 3:02 am (CT), Riley Rose Sherman flew from this earth into the arms of our Lord. Her grandma and her family and all her other friends were waiting for her. No more pain, no more pokes, no more medicine, she is cured.

Mommy and daddy fought so hard for you. We are sad and broken, but we are joyful knowing that she is in no more pain.

Texas Celebration of Life - this Sunday 4/15 from 2-4pm (see Facebook group for details)

Funeral Mass - Tuesday, May 1st at 11am - at Sacred Heart Church in Palm Desert, CA, reception to follow.

Update from Kristin on April 9th:

We were never promised one minute with you, and yet we have had six and a half amazing years.

Riley Rose has bleeding in her brain and multiple new cancer spots - we are officially off of any trial and she is too unstable to travel home.

We will bring her home for a full Catholic funeral and mass at Sacred Heart. We don’t know when this will happen, but it will be soon. Maybe a week, maybe less.

Our hearts are broken into so many pieces.

Please pray, pray for our family, pray for Matthew, and pray that we may see God in all of this.

There are a couple of recent Facebook posts from Kristin that I wanted to share:
March 14:

Not the update that we wanted to post.

Here it is - it’s back for a third time.

It’s everywhere 5 or 6 new spots including her spine and her only adrenal gland and her arm and her legs. She progressed on DFMO - we will talk to Dr. Scholler tomorrow and try to get home as fast as we can. Our goal is to keep her comfortable till the end - maybe a few weeks, maybe a few months. Sometime before her birthday they assume.

As God as my witness I will never stop fighting for these kids! Cancer didn’t win - God wins and love wins!

March 16:

They did a lymph node biopsy today and it is most definitely relapsed / recurrent neuroblastoma.

We will try to get the infection under control as well and do an MIGB scan next week. Dr. Sholler is doing some genomic sequencing of the lymph node today and will look for targeted therapies but that keep her out of the hospital and are easy on her.

We are going to have to make some tough decisions because of the lack of healthcare in the desert they want us within 30 minutes of a hospital with a hands on pediatric hospice team. I don’t know what that looks like - I don’t know anything. I only know that my precious daughter and us have fought the good fight and will continue to seek out God in all of this. Pray for my tender heart, it is most certainly broken into small little pieces.

You know it’s bad when the oncologist cries with you.
