About The Author
Sherry Pollex became a champion for survivors of cancer when she and longtime boyfriend and NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Martin Truex Jr. established the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation. At 35, Sherry was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer and doctors estimated that her chance of survival was less than 30% within 5 years. She underwent a radical hysterectomy, debulking surgery and 17 months of chemotherapy. For her 37th birthday, she launched SherryStrong.org to empower women to know their bodies, recognize the symptoms of ovarian cancer and learn how integrative and holistic practices may complement conventional medicine.
