‘I think there has to be hope for everyone’
Sixteen years later, Sheri Pherigo shares the story of her stroke and recovery
Two decades ago, odds are you’d find Sheri Pherigo line-dancing the night away or teaching aerobics classes. You might even find her bronzed and outfitted in spandex, competing in bodybuilding competitions.
These activities made up a large portion of Pherigo’s life until a little less than 16 years ago, when the fit and healthy young woman suffered a massive stroke.
“I was an aerobic instructor right before this, so they really didn’t know how this happened or why this happened,” she explained. “I’d had a perfect physical three weeks before this, so I couldn’t understand why it happened either.”
