Aliza Sherman remembered on Mother's Day for her mission to help women conceive
BEACHWOOD, OH (WOIO) - Tickets were sold out for the Aliza Sherman Mother's Day fundraiser brunch in Beachwood.
Over 100 of Sherman's family, friends and co-workers came together at the very building at the Cleveland Clinic in Beachwood where Sherman worked.
"To me, every day without my mom is extremely difficult, but it helps to bring people together and do things in her honor, which is what she would want us to do," said Jennifer Sherman, Eliza Sherman's daughter.
Sherman's life was cut tragically short when she was stabbed to death outside her divorce attorney's offices in downtown Cleveland three years ago. No one has ever been charged with her murder. Sherman was a nurse who specialized in in vitro fertilization.
"My mom was super passionate about her job as an infertility nurse. For her, it was not a job. It was her greatest passion. It never felt like work to her," added Jennifer Sherman.
All of the proceeds from the event go to the Cleveland Clinic's Harboring Hope Fund, which provides funds for women whose first IVF attempt failed, giving them a second chance at becoming pregnant.
While she waits for justice, every Mother's Day Jennifer Sherman does something to keep her mother's spirit of selflessness and giving, alive.
"For the evil coward or cowards that were responsible for my mom's brutal death, they can steal her away from us physically, but her light still shines very bright," said Jennifer Sherman.
