“One year ago I opened my clinic MacDonell Family Physiotherapy.
Noting a gap in our community and listening to stories women shared with me during treatment sessions, I founded WECAN – a networking support group for Women Experiencing Cancer that I hold free of charge every other month at the clinic. I have additional training, experience and a passion for supporting women with breast cancer in their rehabilitation.
The women are so appreciative to have a safe space to talk about experiences, challenges, overcoming barriers, return to work, relationships, fears and to celebrate success! And the list goes on and on!
It is open to any woman who has experienced cancer – from just having been diagnosed, to during and after treatment and I even have some women years into remission.
I am proud to be able to provide this to our community.” – Kristen MacDonell
