Sherri Butterworth and Rhonda Avis-Antorino have known each other since 1990 and always remained friends while working at different jobs. After knowing each other for some time, both women were with Breast Cancer. Sherri heard about Mary’s Place - a respite home for women with cancer - where they could be with others who were also facing cancer. Both being single working mothers, Rhonda and Sherri shared many struggles, and found happiness and peace during a weekend stay at Mary’s Place. Rhonda and Sherri are grateful to Mary’s Place for the experience they had there.
Sherri and Rhonda are both breast cancer survivors and are excited to to raise funds for Mary’s Place during the Laurita Winery Vines for Life Walk on Sunday, September 30th. All funds raised will benefit the guests of Mary's Place.
