Rebekah Stott: How I kicked cancer and carried on - Between Two Beers Podcast

Between Two Beers Podcast

On this episode of Between Two Beers we talk to Rebekah Stott. 

Stott is a Football Fern, who will be one of her side's most important players when they host the Women’s World Cup in NZ in July. 

Her professional football journey has been quite remarkable; ten different teams across four countries, two World Cups and two Olympics.. but her story transcends sport. 

In June 2020 Stott noticed a lump above her collarbone and soon after was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer that would turn her world upside down. 

But 294 days after her diagnosis was confirmed, she returned to the footy field – beating the disease and returning to the professional game. 

In this ep we talk about how she dealt with her life-changing diagnoses, her thoughts on mortality and how she stayed positive, her epic return to professional football and the path that got her there, meeting Neymar, kissing Russell Brand, all her thoughts on the upcoming World Cup and much, much more. 

Stott is an exceptional role model for anyone suffering adversity in life. Her upbeat approach to life and illness is both inspiring and uplifting, and it's easy to see why she’s so widely loved by everyone in the football community.
