MaryEllen’s Journey: Hope Returns (Final Episode)
The moment finally came.
But it was an uneasy one at first.
MaryEllen Sheppard was about to receive her last round of chemotherapy at Mayo Clinic, with friends and family by her side. But as her loved ones and her nurses cheered her on, a wave of emotion hit this mom with nerves of steel.
What will life be like after these medical appointments end?, was one of the questions MaryEllen wondered about as tears streamed down her cheeks.
In this final installment of MaryEllen’s Journey, MaryEllen shares how she was feeling during those last chemotherapy and radiation appointments and visits with Mayo again post-treatment to share what she did to get her life back on track.
We truly thank MaryEllen for giving Mayo Clinic’s video crew open access to her life to share her story and experiences with others going through a breast cancer diagnosis. It was a privilege getting to know her and help her share her story with you all.
