Will Fleming is on the road to recovery.

This tenacious bicyclist has faced many health challenges along the way, including three liver transplants, a kidney transplant and brain surgery. Will’s transplant hepatologist at Northwestern Medicine, Josh Levitsky, MD, recognized Will’s determination and encouraged him to keep working toward his health goals.

This fall, after his latest medical treatments and recovery, Will was able to return to the road for some outdoor miles. He even inspired Dr. Levitsky get on his bike. “He said he’d started cycling more and promised me he’d go for a ride after I got a transplant and recovered,” says Will. “I told him he had a deal.”

Here’s to Will’s recovery and many more rides to come!

At Northwestern Medicine, we believe in the power of support, connection and growth. Our wide range of support groups held throughout the year are designed to enhance your well-being and knowledge. Hear from people who have joined these groups, why they chose to join and how support groups have helped them live healthier and happier lives. Visit nm.org/patients-and-visitors/classes-and-events to learn more about our support groups.

Jeanne Hammond, a member of the Women and Parkinson’s Disease Support Group, says, “I needed a sense of community where I could connect with other people navigating a life with Parkinson’s. The group has provided me with great information about resources in the community, helpful adaptations, solace and even humor. For all these reasons, I look forward to every monthly meeting.”

Ann Mardon, a member and co-facilitator of the Women’s Bladder Cancer Support Group, was asked by her physician to take part in establishing the group. “For most of my journey, I had to learn on my own about living from day to day with bladder cancer, until I began participating in this group,” says Ann. “Being in this group has not only been a time for me to share my experiences and support other women but also a time for me to learn from the ladies.”

Elenor Beltran, a member of the Aphasia Support Group, has Broca’s aphasia and apraxia. She joined the group seeking a supportive environment to enhance her language communication skills through social interactions with both group members and professionals. “I'm enjoying the fantastic activities and having the opportunity to practice my speech skills,” shares Elenor.

Joanne Kohls, a member of the Facing Cancer Together (FACT) Support Group, and her husband, Gary, a member of the Caregiver Support Group, joined the groups after Joanne was diagnosed with stage 2 classical Hodgkin lymphoma nodular sclerosis. “I was looking for guidance and support as I began a cancer journey,” says Joanne. “I joined the group before I even started chemo.” As for Gary, he wanted to support his wife. The couple also had close family members who had cancer and found community within the group. “We feel a kinship with other cancer survivors, especially ones touched by blood cancers,” says Gary. “I feel prepared if or when cancer arises again in our lives because Northwestern Medicine Living Well Cancer Resources gives us a space to connect and learn from other people.”
