When you’re a part of the Disney Studio family, life is anything but ordinary. Cathy’s father was George Sherman, Head of Publications at Walt Disney Studios from the late 1950s to 1974. He was in charge of comic books. When Disney foreign representatives came to town, they would visit this “typical American family,” and would be escorted by them to Disneyland. Mr. Sherman died of a rare cancer when only 45, and his daughter now has the same disease. In the interim, however, Mrs. Sherman bought a sailboat with the intention of sailing to the South Seas. Things did not go as planned (ask the resident whale!). Cathy later had a journey of her own to Europe--along with the journeys of the soul that have allowed her to face her father's old foe with courage.
Nothing, however, could compare to the sweet, wonderful memories of those years as a Disney Studio family.
