The Story

It's hard to think of Stephanie without thinking about her faith in God.  Through all of the challenges in her life, that faith has never wavered.  She's spent most of her life taking care of others.  Her adult son Rudy has cerebral palsy and needs constant care.

Shortly after Rudy’s latest hospital visit, it was Stephanie who needed help.  She was admitted into the hospital in May of 2013 with pain in her legs.  After numerous tests, she was diagnosed with a rare form of Lymphoma.  In mid-July, she was transferred from Roanoke to Duke Hospital in Durham, North Carolina.

Surrounded by some of the best doctors in the country, she's fighting the disease with courage and the prayers of so many.

Her husband Michael is at home caring for her son.

Saturday Sophie was in very good spirits and she spoke of getting to come home Tuesday (yesterday).  

That was pushed back while Doctors evaluated a few more things they wanted
to improve.  For a length of time, i believe about two weeks Sophie has
not run a fever, wound healing on her legs has improved vastly and
swelling in her body is much improved, you can see that improvement most
in her arms, hands and even face.   Swelling in her legs is better, but
in her feet it seems more pronounced. 

Rick did send me a text this Morning that she will be released today (Weds.), but he didn't
have  a specific time.   The intention is to then continue chemo  treatments at Duke on an outpatient basis.  The projected time line for  her next chemo treatment is next week.  

There is still the matter of a very serious illness to treat, but complicating factors which Sophie had going on when she arrived at Duke a month ago are much improved.

I'm sure we will hear from Sophie when she actually leaves Duke and arrives Home.

From WSLS:


The K92 Morning Thang is missing one of its co-workers. "Everybody has that person in the office that handles everything and knows where everything is," said DJ Zack Jackson. "They have a system that makes no sense to anybody else and probable isn't an efficient system but when they're not around nobody even knows where pen are around here."

Jackson is referring to receptionist Stephanie Campbell, known around the broadcast building as Sophie. Right now, she's is working on healing at Duke where she's fighting a rare form of Lymphoma and away from her husband and son who has cerebral palsy and himself needs constant care.

Sophie told Facebook friends last week it's the hardest thing she's ever done. As bad as her illness is, she says there's no one else she would want to have it. It's the kind of selfless attitude Sophie's co-workers have come to know about her even in the midst of her personal struggles. "If there were ever a person who could come in everyday and could hang their head and play the victim, I'd forgive her, I could understand how she could do that but she never did that," explained Leonard Wheeler. Instead, Sophie greeted co-workers clients and listeners who come in with a memorable smile.

The station put together a YouTube video to cheer her up, showing how things aren't the same without her. "It's that person that is smiling, positive face in your life everyday," Jackson said. A smile they're hoping to see back soon.

Sophie's colleagues at Wheeler Broadcasting have set up a website to share pictures and updates and also as a way to accept donations from the many people wanting to help her heal. You can find it here.

The past few days have been great! All of Sophie's white blood cell levels are going up (sign of her recovering from chemo well) and her energy level gets better every day.
She watched the video you folks made her today for the first time all the way through and it really raised her spirits and made her laugh. She was introducing all of you to the nurse and me as the video played, and it was a really good time.
Thanks again for sending Sophie all your love and support,
Rick MacGregor
