There have been many twists and turns in the cancer journey of Sherry Pollex. The longtime girlfriend of current NASCAR champion Martin Truex Jr. and the driving force behind the charity SherryStrong.org, Sherry has long known that her battle against ovarian cancer would be a long and winding one.

Yet, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to celebrate the milestones of that fragile journey.

And on March 14, she did just that.

“Love when I get to see my favorite doc in the whole world,” she wrote on her Instagram page on March 14, alongside a picture of herself with one of her physicians, who she did not name. “He’s one of the kindest, most talented surgeons and oncologists I’ve ever met! His pure heart and will to fight are the reasons I chose him to be my doctor.”

And then, she broke her big news.

“PET scan was all clear,” she wrote. “Just some scar tissue showing up from my previous surgeries. Thank you Lord. Start my maintenance drug in the next few weeks. Lots of important decisions to make, but I am so grateful for this life, this time I’ve been given to make memories, my amazing team of doctors and nurses and all of you!!!! Your support means everything! Thank you for being you and supporting #SherryStrong and the thousands of women like me that are fighting every day to beat this beast!!!!”

NASCAR fans have long followed Sherry and her story and cheered her on from afar. And now, with this amazing piece of news, that support will no doubt continue at racetracks across the country on the NASCAR circuit.

“I will be on [drug inhibitors] for the rest of my life, or until there is another recurrence, which you pray and hope doesn’t happen,” Sherry told Rare Country during a recent interview.

We have never prayed more, Sherry.

You got this girl.
