Sherri is also a five time cancer survivor and her philosophy and main strength and lasting legacy is her personality, sportsmanship and role as tennis ambassador. Nothing is so bad that the sun won’t warm the soul. There is nothing so serious or important that fair calls and honest competition won’t carry the day. And tennis, the sport of a lifetime will help you, heal you and stimulate your body and soul for as long as you accept the challenge of play and competition. Sherri was inducted into the USTA Central Arizona Hall of Fame in 2012
