In August, 2014 Sherry Pollex began to feel ill, she went to several doctors , but neither found what was wrong with her, she had stage III ovarian cancer, a week after her diagnosis she underwent surgery which lasted 8 hours, Sherry’s appendix, spleen, ovaries, fallopian tubes and part of her stomach were removed. Martin recalled those days.
“She had gone to three or four doctors, and they couldn’t figure out what was going on,” Truex said. “This went on for a couple of months. … Finally, we got her to a surgeon — a friend of a friend — in Lake Norman. He said right away, ‘Let’s do a CT scan.’
“They did the scan. Two hours later, he called and told us to come down to the office. Right away he told us, ‘You have ovarian cancer.’ “
The first thing that went through Sherry’s mind was the only chance to be a mother one day was to save her eggs.
I had stopped taking birth-control pills,” she said. “As soon as I had the CT scan and heard the diagnosis, I did ask if I could save my eggs. The doctor told me there was no time for that. He said, ‘We have to get you to surgery in the next few days, or you’re going to die.’
“There was no time to think about the fact that I was devastated that I could never be a mother. I don’t know what hit me worse – the devastation that I couldn’t carry my own child or the devastation that I had Stage III cancer. To hear all that in a matter of five minutes — it was so hard.”
Four weeks after her surgery Sherry started chemo treatment, her last round of chemo came a couple of days before Martin’s attempt to capture his first championship in NASCAR’s premier division.
