Sky Foundation Founder, Sheila Sky Kasselman Shares Her Victory Against Pancreatic Cancer


“I said if I lived, I would be that person who gives back. I have a lot of plans for the future and hope I can do everything I set out to do.” – Sheila Sky Kassleman

Sheila Sky Kassleman is a survivor of the most aggressive form of pancreatic cancer.

To celebrate her survival, Sheila used a sledgehammer to smash a 3-D printed replica of her tumor created by the Henry Ford Innovation Institute’s “Crushing Cancer Program.” The program is designed to empower patients like Sheila, and provide a platform to share their story of survival to inspire others.
