Cheryl Loves Her Family, Sees Her Mother As Inspiration

Her father was an engineering consultant and had to continually move places, which transmitted the travel bug into her, a passion she still follows.

It was her mother, however, who was the most significant influence in her life. Despite serving full time as a secretary, she had time for her husband and her daughter but loved working. It was Cheryl's mother who encouraged her to work and become an independent woman. As a child, Cheryl was in awe of how her mother managed her family consisting of an always travelling husband and an attitude-laden daughter with her professional life and yet grinned enthusiastically every night before sleep, content with the days work. 

Despite not getting married and never wanting to have children herself, Cheryl was grateful to her mother, and all mothers in general because of the hardships they had to face and still managed to carry themselves forward. And as an ode to her mother, Cheryl penned a book The Comeback: How Today's Moms Reenter Workplace Successfully, a collection of her childhood memoirs of her mother and an inspiration to all others aspiring to manage their professional life with family.

Killer Cancer Takes Family Apart, How Did Cheryl Respond?

Cheryl lost her grandfather in her early age to cancer so, she always feared the disease. With the risk of cancer very high to immediate relatives of the victim, Cheryl's father was at risk of getting one. 

Her fear proved to be true after her father was diagnosed with cancer and sadly lost his battle with the disease. It's not just father and grandfather who she lost to the disease, as her Fox Radio colleague Mike Majchrowitz was also a victim of the deadliest killer disease. 

Cheryl, however, is not giving up on her fight against the fearsome disease and regularly donates to the organization fighting against it.

Recently, she was part of the 2018 Susan G Komen Greater NYC Race For Cure, 28th instalment of the annual 5 Km walk, in order to raise awareness about cancer and make the patients going through the treatment feel supported and empowered. The race will be led by Cheryl's fellow Fox News anchor Gerri Willis, who is herself suffering from stage 3 lobular breast cancer.
