“I believe that my health mattered and it was up to me to say something, cause they weren’t going to protect me.”
Working for decades in smoke-filled casinos resulted in Sheryl’s battle with throat cancer. You will note that Sheryl’s voice was weak in this recording (2011). Soon after this recording, her voice was too weak to speak at all. She asked us to “be her voice” when she could no longer speak. Sadly, Sheryl lost her battle with cancer on August 3, 2012. We will continue to fight for smokefree air in all casino workplaces, for Sheryl, and for all casino workers. Please join us!
