Sharon’s wishes were to remain private about her illness. She had expected 6-9months upon diagnosis. Sharon and her husband wanted to have some time privately before sharing with friends. Unfortunately, her time was cut to about 3 months and she was not able to share at that time. Please understand and thanks to all who have reached out.
