Strokes are nothing new to the star and her family as she, Marie, and her grandmother have all suffered them in the past. The actress has even gone as far as becoming an advocate for brain aging diseases that disproportionately affect women.

During a 2019 Variety interview, she opened up about her own experience, stating, “I had a massive stroke – and a nine-day brain bleed."

The disease affected the actress in all facets of her life, including her personal and professional lives. Sharon’s stroke also affected her ability to keep custody of her son.

In her interview, she explained how people had treated her in a “brutally unkind way.” She received ill-treatment from other women in her business and the female judge who was responsible for handling her custody case.
