Uniting for Jeri Sherman. The funds will be used to cover all medical costs, to help her battle metastatic bone disease.

Jeri was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer in 2005, she fought a tough battle enduring months of agressive chemotherapy and radiation. In 2010 she was declared in remission. In 2012 she started having severe pain in her back and hips. In June she saw her primary physician. After a few x-rays she was given the diagnosis of exstensive metastatic bone disease, resulting from the breast cancer. Along with the cancer she had a compression fracture and patholigical fracture at L2 & L3. The cancer lesions were found to be in her hips, pelvis, femur and all of her spine. On June 22, 2012 her battle began again. After a whirlwind of tests, doctors and 2 surgeries her insurance company has not payed any of her medical exspenses stating "pre-existing condition". Jeri needs to have a regimen of infusions, one to strengthen the bones to help prevent further fractures, one to kill the cells that are causing the cancer to be extremely agressive and a third to help slow the cancer growth. Without this regimen the cancer will continue to grow. Due to the insurance issues her onocologist has refused to treat her and so far we have not found a state program she is eligible for, which means she can not get these vital treatments. Any donation towards these mounting medical bills will assist us in ensuring she can continue to get these medications.
