Meal Train for

The Sherratt Family

About this Meal Train

Hello Friends and Family! In hard times, we all know it takes a village, such as friends and family to rally around you. My brother-in-law Bill and my sister Stephanie Sherratt are in need of your help. On Friday September 2nd, Bill Sherratt scheduled a regular doctor appointment because he had not felt quite himself for three weeks. He started having occasional nosebleeds and mild headaches, but had thought it was due to a medication change or a possible ear infection. When he went to the doctor, he had some blood work done. His doctor noticed an abnormality, and Bill was transported immediately to Marin General ER for neurology work. He had hours of blood work and a cat scan. The cat scan revealed he had brain hemorrhaging in three areas and dangerously low blood platelets. He was moved to ICU. Bill and Stephanie were told there may be a chance it was leukemia and therefore, he would need to be transported once again to UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco. The next day in SF, he had numerous blood transfusions and 12 bags of platelets. After further cat scans, blood work, and a bone marrow biopsy, it was confirmed , he in fact had APML leukemia. APML is on of the rarest, yet most aggressive forms of leukemia. However, in the last two years medications have been discovered that help to battle this form of cancer, as opposed to conventional chemo. Because the treatment is blood related, Bill must remain in the hospital at UCSF for 30 days. After which, if all goes well, he will continue treatment from home for an additional year. As you can imagine, this has rocked their world. Stephanie is driving back and forth almost daily, juggling the girls, and somehow, remaining calm. We all know she acts like she can do everything herself. For Bill, one bright side, is that he has had very little side effects from the treatment other than fatigue. He is his usually funny self, telling corny jokes, and is loving all of the TV time. The hard part, is breaking this news to everyone. I created this page to create one central location to provide updates on Bill's health, and provide information for those who wish to help. Help can come in the form of a meal cooked, groceries purchased, gift cards, or a direct donation on this page for their ongoing expenses. I know all of this will be greatly appreciated as Bill and Stephanie navigate through this tough time. They have a long road ahead of them and I hope that we can all help in any way we can. I have set an initial goal of $10,000 and all funds donated will go directly to Bill's wife, Stephanie Sherratt. Thank you in advance for your support, well wishes and help, it is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Alison Tanzer (Stephanie's sister)
