Sherry Pollex completes chemotherapy treatment for ovarian cancer
Sherry Pollex announced on Twitter that she has completed chemotherapy treatments for her recurrence of ovarian cancer.
The long-time girlfriend of 2017 Cup Series champion Martin Truex Jr. tweeted from the hospital following her last treatment.
Pollex had been cancer free for over a year following her initial fight with Stage III ovarian cancer. That fight, which began in August 2014, ended in January 2016. The cancer returned over the summer.
Pollex missed two of Truex’s wins in 2017 due to her treatments. She was absent in July at Kentucky Speedway due to surgery and missed the fall race at Charlotte Motor Speedway while she recovered from a chemo treatment.
