Charity Yard Sale to Raise Medical & Funeral Expenses
for Mother of Five
Join us at a Charity Yard & Bake Sale Saturday, November 10, 8am – noon at Trinity Lutheran Church at 408 6th St. Juniata to raise funds for the medical and funeral expenses of Sherry Forsht Hammel who recently lost the battle to Colon Cancer.
Sherry, who passed at 37 years old, leaves behind 5 children; 3 adopted boys and 2 biological. Six years ago while an unwed woman, a mother approached Sherry about relieving her of the responsibilities of motherhood. Sherry did. She then met her husband and they had two biological children. Today she leaves behind a 13 year old, 2 11 year olds, a 5 year old, a 2 year old and her husband.
The treatments, surgeries and clinical trials were expensive and left her family with the burden of a funeral and medical bills to pay. Volunteers from the community have come together to try to help this family.
Additional fundraisers include; Saturday, November 17 a Spaghetti Dinner is being held at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament for $10 a person.
