With all the problems that one may encounter on the Appalachian Trail, Willow Bolton decided that highlighting her disability (something that she refers to as a blessing) would be a good way to bring some attention to it.
In the interview with Steve she mentions, almost in passing, another major issue and, despite her stoicism, Steve was moved by her determination.

This week, we also spoke with Ryan Hopkins, who produced Steve's show while he was on the AT this year. Ryan has some news of his own that involves a song called "Thru" by a group named Tie Goes To The Runner. Steve met Scooch and Paris (two of the group's members) this year and they graciously shared their song with him. Watch their video here on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-ejGjWCGHU
Finally, Paul Stutzman indulges in the somewhat questionable joys of Naked Hiking Day.
