Overcoming Pancreatic Cancer and Taking Life to New Heights w/Sindy Hooper EP 10

The Passion Struck Podcast

The purpose of today's show is to bring awareness to pancreatic cancer survival. In today’s show, John interviews Sindy Hooper about overcoming pancreatic cancer survivor and competing as an Ironman Triathlete. Sindy shares with us her incredible story of grit, hope, and finding success in extreme adversity.  Back in 2013, things could not have been better for Sindy. She was leading a happy existence with her physician husband at their countryside home. Sindy had just turned 50 and was in the best shape of her life. A huge fitness enthusiast, Sindy was training for Ironman Canada when she felt a few sharp abdominal and back pains. Further investigations revealed that she had pancreatic cancer – a disease with an average life expectancy of just 6 months.  After going through Whipple surgery where “they removed her gall bladder, bile duct, duodenum, bottom third of stomach and half the pancreas,” Sindy went through 18 rounds of IV chemo, 28 days of radiation, and a month of oral chemo. While she was going through her treatment, she decided to do what any rational person would. Sindy decided to participate in Ironman Canada!  The Ironman features a 3.9 km swim,180 km bike ride, and then a 42 km marathon, to put things in perspective. So, in August 2013, Sindy became the only pancreatic cancer survivor to finish an Ironman. In the process, she also raised thousands of dollars and gave hope to millions worldwide. How do you retain a positive mindset even when your future looks bleak, and all odds are stacked against you? Tune in and get inspired! How Sindy survived pancreatic cancer – one of the deadliest forms of the disease with a less than 5% survival rate How she finished the Ironman while I was undergoing chemotherapy How she retained a positive mindset even when all odds were stacked against me What she recommends to other growth seekers in how to take control of their lives And so much more… Questions that I Ask In This Show What was your life like before the cancer diagnosis? Can you explain how they performed the Whipple surgery on you? Can you share how you completed Ironman Canada while you were undergoing chemotherapy? Do you think there can be a success without adversity? What advice do you have for overcoming adversity? How do you deal with negative emotions? How is your life different now compared to how it was before you started your journey? Resources sindyhoop@gmail.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sinhoop/ Follow John R.
