Ep 24 Becky, a true action woman
‘Living with Ovarian Cancer Podcast’ is full of inspiring stories told by people who are living with or have a connection with Ovarian Cancer.
Each person’s story is a gift; unique and is told from the heart in their own words. I am your host, Diane Evans-Wood. Please subscribe to the Podcast and leave a review so that the show becomes more visible to listeners.
In this episode I talk to Becky Gray who is a Wife. Mum, Physio, and all-round action woman. Becky tells me about her symptoms before being diagnosed with High Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer diagnosis and the subsequent chemotherapy and surgery that followed. Becky’s diagnosis caused a relapse in her mental health which she has endured for most of her life. Since recording the Podcast Becky has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder which has been very hard for her and her family to cope with.
Becky was trying to remember a song for her signature tune. It was Elbow, “One day like this”.
As this episode is released, Becky has been diagnosed with a recurrence of Ovarian Cancer, so on behalf of us all I wish her the very best outcome as she faces further treatment.
Becky mentioned the following organisations in this episode:
