Today The Nikki Rich Show talks with Sherryy Lee Meredit About SHERRY LEE MEREDITH:
Sherry Lee Meredith is a mother, successful business woman, and an ambassador for curvy women across the world. She hosts the talk show she created, Go Curvy, which has quickly become the go-to resource for curvy women. She brings her love for life, fashion, fun and real stories to her viewers on Go Curvy every Thursday.
Born and raised in Canada, Sherry Lee moved to Southern California several years ago and launched a successful chain of salons in the beauty industry. In 2011, when Sherry Lee was at the pinnacle of her career, she suffered a stroke which left her paralyzed on half her body. Through rehabilitation, tears, and a lot of willpower, Sherry was able to make a full recovery. This experience left her with the time to think about what was truly important in life. It was a moment for her to pause, reflect, and consider how she could use her story to inspire others. Through her own challenges, she was rejuvenated to spread a message of positivity that starts with feeling confident about yourself from the inside out. She decided Go Curvy would be the perfect platform to share that message with the world.
Prior to her work on Go Curvy, her business success included starting an insurance company, and investing in a manufacturing company. She also created the groundbreaking “sunless” tanning product - Unique Excellence.
Sherry Lee was first introduced to TV viewers with her segment “Help Me Sherry Lee” on a local cable show in Orange County. She also created, produced, and starred in the show "Takeover Makeover," during which she chose to help women who had endured traumatic and heart wrenching life experiences. These ladies were indulged with a whirlwind celebrity glamour session and given the VIP treatment with lots of encouragement, love, and healing from Sherry Lee to start anew.

March 27, 2015: At Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas, physical therapists often see patients who have suffered a mild traumatic brain injury or concussion in the line of duty. Sometimes the concussion is the result of an explosion in combat. Other times, it might be due to a fall or collision during training.
Lt Col Tony Cromer Jr, suffered a concussion due to a more common workplace hazard, when his head was slammed by an opening door. The effects of that workplace accident, including headaches and dizziness, were the same as they often are for soldiers on the battlefield.
In this episode, physical therapist Miriam Hammerle, PT, Cert SMT, and Cromer discuss his injury and treatment.
