Sharon, her mother, and grandmother have all suffered strokes in the past, and Sharon is now an advocate for brain ageing diseases that disproportionately affect women.
In an interview with Variety in 2019, she spoke about her personal experience with the issue. "This is why I do it, my mother had a stroke," she began. "My grandmother had a stroke. I had a massive stroke – and a nine-day brain bleed."
She went on to share that following her own stroke, she struggled with both her personal and professional life, including keeping custody of her son.
"People treated me in a way that was brutally unkind," she said. "From other women in my own business to the female judge who handled my custody case, I don’t think anyone grasps how dangerous a stroke is for women and what it takes to recover — it took me about seven years."
