Former daycare provider battling cancer, community rallying together for support

Posted: Updated:
GOODRICH (WJRT) - (06/06/14) - The Goodrich community is rallying behind a beloved daycare provider who is battling cancer.     

They're hoping an outpouring of support will help cheer her up and help her tackle new treatments with more confidence.

For nearly 20 years, Sherry Hempton took care of dozens of kids at her daycare, but now those same kids are taking care of her.

A few years ago, Sherry was diagnosed with Lymphoma.

With successful treatment, she spent nearly three years in remission, but just last month, the nightmare resurfaced.

A spinal tap revealed the cancer was back.

Now one of her former daycare kids - all grown up - is helping raise money to help her with mounting medical bills.

A T-shirt has been created in honor of Sherry and Lymphoma Awareness, and proceeds will be a donation to both causes.
