American Cancer Society names Hamilton County representative

January 30, 2008
The Daily Freeman Journal
The American Cancer Society is pleased to announce Cheryl Sherry as the staff representative in Hamilton County. Born and raised in Southern California, Sherry has been a Fort Dodge area resident for the past six years and joined the American Cancer Society in November 2007. She will use her expertise in volunteer recruitment and support, community service, and event planning to further the goals of the American Cancer Society.

Sherry's awareness of the mission of the American Cancer Society began in 1989 when her father died from squamous cell lung cancer, which accounts for 25 to 30 percent of all lung cancers. "His struggle, and my family's loss, opened my eyes to the reality of cancer and the need to take action to stop it," emphasizes Sherry.

Sherry's service to Hamilton County will include supporting Daffodil Days and Relay For Life, along with general cancer awareness and education. She will also serve as a community representative in Calhoun, Humboldt, Pocahontas, Webster and Wright counties.

To contact Sherry, call 515-576-6274 or email
