Ellie meets the real-life ‘Shermie’

Ellie was devastated when she lost her Richard Sherman doll in the hospital.


Ellie Carter, 4, spends about 200 days a year at Mary Bridge to treat several medical conditions.

To help her through all the tough pokes and procedures, she has a special Richard Sherman doll, who she calls ‘Shermie.’

When she lost the doll at the hospital this fall, she was understandably devastated.

Her mom, Megan Carter, sought out help finding Shermie on social media. Soon enough, word got to Richard Sherman and a special visit was arranged.
