Sherrie's thoughts

Hi Blog Readers,

I am Sherrie, a character in "The Day That Changed My Life". I love working with the cast and the Aldrich family! Cancer must be hard on little kids. I'm not sick, but my father in the play is. It's hard for me to understand. Does anyone have any idea how I should feel?



  1. Although I was not a little girl when my father had cancer, it was still a very sad time for me. I loved him very much and I did not want to lose him. It was a tough time watching him get weaker and sicker. You may not know how to feel, especially if you are very young. You may remain upbeat thinking he will get better.

  2. When I was 11 years old, I found out my father had cancer. It was absolutely terrifying, but at the same time, I kind of blocked if from my mind. Obviously, the last thing any little girl wants to think about it is losing her father. As a result of that and my youth, I remained hopeful. I just assumed that he would eventually get better. Through time, the reality of it all began to sink in. Watching someone you love so much slowly grow weaker over time can really take a toll on anyone, especially a child of such a young age. Honestly, I was so scared of it all that I attempted to stay away from it as much as possible. Looking back, I wish I hadn't done so because I feel that I missed out on precious time with my father.
