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!

If you are donating on Giving Tuesday (11/28), please use #youcaringgives2017 in your comments. Thank you!

Update on Facebook from Kristin (Riley's mom) today:

Ok here is what we know so far today! 

She does have one spot of cancer in her left arm. Her face and sinus area are completely CLEAR! We don’t know if radiation cleared it or if we have a full blown miracle - we are choosing to believe that it is miraculous in nature because it was big and bright and it’s gone. 

She does qualify for the DFMO and etopiside trial - she will be starting today. She can go off of that trial at any point if she qualifies for something else or the need arises. They are going to stay in Michigan for another week or so to do some spot radiation to her arm.

This is the most exciting part - we have been told by several doctors that her bone marrow is permanently damaged and that’s not true - she is making plenty of platelets - it’s just that her body is attacking them before they can become mature - she has made an antibody that does this. Well this can be fixed - with steroids and IVIG and another new drug! So they are also going to work on getting this straightened out in the next week as well. This alone changes everything - and we are so glad that Dr. Scholler and her team was able to find this problem and hopefully fix it. 

Her numbers are good - we aren’t out of the woods yet - but HOPE IS ALIVE and for that we are grateful.

As always traveling is super expensive - and so are all the drugs and the co-pays if you can spare a few bucks we would appreciate it. Thank you always, we are grateful! 

To God be the Glory!

On November 29, 2017 disease was discovered in her sinus cavity and in her arms. They came home on 11/30/17 and will speak to CHOC and see what they say about palliative care. They are looking forward to their Make a Wish trip to Hawaii to meet Moana over the Christmas Holidays.

Please don't say anything to Matthew or Riley Rose - please be happy and joyful - even though we are scared, we don't want them to be.

Continue to pray for the Sherman Family and be respectful of their family time during this time.
