Sherry Pollex  Stage 3c ovarian cancer survivor. Created to focus on OC prevention & healthy living via holistic & integrative medicine πŸ’™

I know we have a lot of new followers on IG πŸ‘ If you haven’t visited yet, I want to encourage you to do so! Whether you are healthy, in treatment, or finding your way post treatment, has something for EVERYONE πŸ’™
Share with a friend or relative who may need some encouragement or tips on managing side effects or eating healthy and so much more!
If you take anything away from my website and I hope you find lots of useful stuff, I want you to KNOW your body, listen to your inner self! You know when something is wrong. Be persistent with medical professionals. It’s ok to disagree with them. NO ONE knows your body better than you!
I knew something was wrong and after several months and several different doctors, it was almost too late! My disease had already spread rapidly. This happens to SO many women all over the country. Please be your own advocate! πŸ’ͺ

Gratitude. It seems like such a simple word. Yet it carries so much weight. It’s exactly what I felt walking into and most importantly, out of, my hospital today. Gratitude that I had a good check-up and that my maintenance drug seems to be working πŸ’™πŸ™ Gratitude that I was able to deliver 30 #SherryStrong Chemo Boxes to the infusion room where I was once sitting for hours getting toxins pumped through my veins, scared of the unknown. Gratitude that I was able to walk out the doors of that hospital today, feel the sun on my face, get in my car and go on about my day. Gratitude for MY HEALTH, MY DOCTORS & most importantly MY LIFE!! πŸ™Œ I challenge all of you to wake up each day and say 5 things you’re grateful for out loud. I promise you it will change your attitude and perspective on life. πŸ’™ #sherrystrong #ovariancancer #ovariancancerawareness #survivor #gratitude #healthymind @novanthealth. P.S. If you’d like to donate a #SherryStrong chemo box to a patient in treatment at one of our local hospitals, click the link in our bio!!!! 😘

There are no words for what this photo represents to me. To think that there will be an Integrative Cancer clinic at the hospital where I have been receiving treatment with MY name on it brings tears to my eyes every time I think about it πŸ’™πŸ™Œ I cannot wait to open the doors and teach patients everything I have learned. And to let them know that despite the less than ideal circumstances we have been dealt in life, there is still HOPE and life after cancer πŸ’ͺ. @novanthealth #SherryStrong #ovariancancer #cancer #integrativemedicine #healthylifestyle #acupuncture #massage #yoga #juicing #organic

What an amazing day at the White House!!! Even though we were there to honor Martin and his team for their amazing championship, it was SO humbling to be acknowledged by the President for everything I’ve been through. And to be able to speak to him on behalf of all the #ovariancancer fighters out there!!!! πŸ’ͺ He spent so much time with me asking about my disease and what we need to fight back! I will forever be grateful for the opportunity! #sherrystrong πŸ’™πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ™Œ

So we got to do something pretty amazing last night at #MTJFCatwalk! We presented @novanthealth with a check for $1.2 MILLION!!! The largest commitment in the 10 year history of the @mtjfoundation πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
With this gift we will be supporting the NEW Martin Truex Jr. Foundation Pediatric Emergency Department & the very first Sherry Strong Integrative Medicine Oncology Clinic πŸ™Œ
We couldn’t do this without all of our donors, volunteers, staff, board members, friends and family πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™
THANK YOU to all of our supporters throughout the years! Together, we can make a huge difference in lives of cancer patients. THIS IS PROOF!!!
