This week’s Badass Chick is Emily Redwood, a 22-year-old wife and working mother fighting Stage 3 Spindle Cell Sarcoma.
While battling the rarest form of soft tissue cancer, Emily would regularly leave work at 2p and travel two hours from New Hampshire to Boston for treatment, for weeks on end. Often times, she would be admitted to MGH for five days straight without a break. During her “off” time (ha, as if, right?!) Emily would not only focus on her job, her husband and her son, but also on completing her college courses.
Emily has battled three surgeries and has lost the majority of function in her left arm, but she doesn’t think twice about it. Her path is all about recovery and being the best mom she can possibly be. I love that Emily’s health challenges haven’t stopped her from living the fullest life she can!
