The Program, Restoring the Spirit (RTS), was conceived in part from Jackie’s personal experience with cancer which gave her first hand exposure to available cancer information and support programs. Most importantly, she received ‘real time’ interaction with, and feedback from, other cancer patients. The gaps she and others discovered in generally available programs and support networks form the basis and content. This Program is designed to give survivors meaningful help and support at different stages in their cancer cycle.
Physical & Mental Benefits:

- Gain a stronger and more accurate awareness of their body which allows them to communicate their needs effectively with their health care provider.
- Calms the nervous system and alleviates the stress and anxiety which lower immune functioning and hinder healing. The relaxation techniques allow the patient to acknowledge and accept the realities of the situation and cope with the fear and uncertainly that accompanies a cancer diagnosis.
