FYI - http://sherisa

Sheri was 23 years old when she got severely injured in a lab fire at UCLA on Dec 29, 2008. After 18 excruciating days in an intensive care unit, Sheri lost her life to her injuries.

Our family is devastated. Our lives will never be what they were. As Sheri& #8217;s family, friends, and loved ones, while we grieve for this unimaginable loss , we’ve been searching for answers. A Cal/OSHA investigation found thre e serious violations in the lab Sheri was working in, and fined UCLA almost $32,000. However, we still do not know exactly what happened that day.

With your support, we hope to get answers. Sheri was a young girl living li fe to the fullest- looking forward to a game of soccer, starting law school, a trip to the beach, hanging out with her friends, laughing- when it was crue lly cut short. No one should have to suffer the pain and horror Sheri suffered. No family should have to bear such a profound loss. Please help prevent this k ind of a tragedy from happening to anyone else.

Sheri’s friends have started a petition to get California legislators to support this quest for justice and reform. Please sign the petition here: http://www.thepetitio

You can also write/call your legislators and the UCLA Chancellor (see link) : What You Can Do

Thank you very much,
