“A friend loves you on a bad hair day or a no hair day…”
Sherry has been married to her husband Jerry since 1968. They have two grown sons and four grandchildren. Having celebrated her 29th year of being cancer free, Sherry has chosen this time in her life to take to the platform “full speed ahead!” to carry forth her message of humor, hugs and hope.
Sherry’s Experience and Training
Sherry has been an inspirational speaker since 1986. Her early training and experience came through Stonecroft’s international organization, Christian Women’s Club. After her experience with cancer she gave birth to her third child, her award winning book, I Don’t Remember Signing up for Cancer! (WinePress). She then graduated from Florence Littauer’s CLASSpeakers, Inc. and has also been a member of Toastmaster’s International. Her speaking has taken her throughout the United States as well as Canada.
Whether Sherry’s speaking for a cancer event such as Race For Women or a Pink Ribbon Banquet, a fundraiser, a businesswomen’s conference or luncheon; whether she’s speaking to doctor’s wives, legislators or children, her heartwarming encouragement, humor and candor are well received. Her audiences have stated that they’ve found themselves laughing in the most unexpected places.
