Sheryl and her family need your help to cover the costs of further medical treatment and any unfunded cancer drugs.

Main image

Not only is Sheryl the most amazing secretary of Te Aroha Primary School where she has worked for the past 18 years, but most importantly, she is also the mother to Cameron, Aimee and Liam and wife of Harold.

She has recently been diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma and will need to have intensive treatment in the form of chemotherapy, radiation therapy as well as surgery to her neck.

Sheryl and her family live in Te Aroha and have been part of our community for many years. She has been involved in school netball coaching, umpiring and also as a player at club level. She was also previously the president of the Te Aroha Netball Club. Sheryl was also an active member of the PTA of her children’s school and at one stage also the president.

Sheryl and her family have already had to spend a great deal of money going through the private medical route to get a quick diagnosis for her illness.

We are asking all friends, family and acquaintances to get behind her and her family so that we can take the financial strain off the family in order for her to be able to focus on getting well.

Use of funds

    In 2018, Unichem Morrinsville raised over $700 for Abby Hartley. Unfortunately this money could not be used, so Richard Hartley and family along with David Bullen have decided that this is where it should go. Unichem Te Aroha is topping up to $1000.
