The couple has been together ever since. Sherry attended most, if not all the races Martin has participated in since their romance began. In the light of support, the couple also founded a charitable organization in the racer’s name to help cancer patients. She even raised more than half a million in 2017 during her Catwalk for a Cause movement.
Fans have often asked when they are going to tie the knot to which Pollex responded in kind;
“But I do get the marriage question a lot. I get a lot of people that ask why we’re not married… we’re probably never gonna get married — so if we’re OK with it, you should be, too. Not everybody wants to be married, let’s just get that clear.”
Their engagement has outlasted most marriages without a single hitch. As far as we’re concerned, Sherry is the only girl Martin has acknowledged dating and has supported her in sickness and in health.
Sherry Pollex Biography, Family and Fight with Cancer.
|Full name||Sherry L. Pollex|
|Date of Birth||May 10th, 1979|
|Place of Birth||Michigan|
|Fiancé||Martin Truex Jr.|
Sherry was born on May 10th, 1979 in Michigan to her parents, Greg and Julia Pollex. Her father was the owner of PPC Racing which would explain her interest in the sports. She also has a sister named Jill Pollex whom she grew up with in Michigan.
The 39-year-old got engaged to Martin even before she had graduated from the Florida State University with a degree in Sports Marketing in 2006. For a moment, everything in her life had been going on great until 2014 when she got diagnosed with stage III Ovarian cancer.
About a week later, Sherry underwent an 8hr long surgery that had her ovaries, fallopian tubes, appendix, spleen and even part of her stomach removed. Those were the most trying moments of her life as the news of never having kids of your own can be devastating. She underwent chemotherapy about a month later and has been on strict medical supervision. Recent scans revealed no cancer reoccurrence which is a win for the couple.
