Who is Apryle?
Apryle Schmidt was a beautiful, vibrant woman, wife, and mother who at 37 years old, learned that she had stage 4 breast cancer.
After a long period of devastating treatments the cancer had spread. She made the courageous decision to cease treatment and spend her precious time with family and the creation of Apryle Showers, a foundation devoted to providing love and blessings to cancer patients who are no longer children, but
have children at home. We lost our Angel on Monday, August 3rd 2015. She left behind her beloved husband, daughter, stepdaughter, family, friends and the many people she inspired.
