For years, I was seen as the invincible physician. Now as a “patient-physician” I’m a stronger advocate for better health awareness and the need for a cure. My diagnoses and treatment have taken away one of my greatest fulfillments in life which was the hands-on care of my patients. But after careful re-consideration of what I still have rather than what I’ve lost, I have a brand new focus and mission in life. I have decided to stop existing and instead have chosen to LIVE!—To Love myself and others; to Inspire those around me; to Voice my dreams and ambitions; and to Enjoy life!
Now affectionately known as Dr. Sheri, I now share my story, my voice, my life, and my victory in awe-inspiring and motivational ways. I bring the unique perspective of being a patient and a physician to my impassioned and captivating speeches. My remarkable story of pain, loss and change has inspired hundreds of thousands of people across the country.
As a wife, mom, daughter and sister I’ve learned that joy doesn’t come from having your circumstances in order and under control; it comes from what’s in your heart and contentment is not about fame or being well-known or how much money you have. Contentment is a heart attitude. The word content means ‘being satisfied to the point where nothing disturbs you no matter what’s going on, but not satisfied to the point that you never want any change. We all want to see things get better. But I believe that where you are right this minute doesn’t have to disturb you. You can choose to believe that God is working and things are changing, and you will see the result of it in due time.
