In our final episode with Rebecca Sperry, she joined us for a live wrap-up interview as she recently completed her twelve rounds of chemotherapy and is starting a new phase of cancer treatment.
During the interview, we reflected on her journey since we first reached out to her to ask if she would share her story with us. It has been difficult for her and getting harder with each round of chemotherapy, but she has maintained a positive attitude and desire to keep her fitness as much as possible even with reduced blood counts and other side effects from treatment.
Rebecca's mother also joined us to tell us what the experience has been like for her as a caregiver and also the joy she has spending time with her daughter whether it is in support of her day-to-day or during times when they can hike their favorite New Hampshire trails together. Rebecca has currently started a new redlining project and is working on the Southern New Hampshire trail system as she builds back up to tackle Northern New Hampshire.
We are so glad that we met Rebecca, talked with her over the past few months and that she trusted us to help her tell her story. We hope that it has helped over people with cancer diagnoses and the people who love them. We cannot wait to see her progress over the coming months and years!
Tune in for this special episode and follow her on social media to keep track of her ongoing journey!
