May 3, 1955 - April 15, 2012
Several of us Aschliman cousins share a May 3 birthday, making us 'special' cousins, at least in our minds. Many of us knew that a diagnosis of GBM was grim news, but Sherry actively carried on for years past the median survival times of approximately 12 months, and joining the 3-5% of patients who live beyond three years. She was a participant in a Duke clinical trial, and possibly benefited from her experimental treatments. She had a ready smile, a dry wit and the 'shopping gene' and will be greatly missed by family and friends.
