Join us on November 11 at noon for the next webcast in our weekly series, McGill Cares, designed to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster, Alzheimer Care Consultant and Founder of the McGill Dementia Education Program, will explore topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia.

Resilience: Finding Courage in the Face of Hardship

Susan Wener is a TEDx alum, bestselling author, educator and therapist. At the age of 36, she was diagnosed with colon cancer. She began treatment with one goal – to see her children finish high school. She successfully underwent chemotherapy and dedicated her career to helping Montreal’s cancer community.

She pursued studies in natural health, recognizing the importance of holistic treatment methods. On the cusp of graduating as a natural health consultant, she was diagnosed with lung cancer. The prognosis was grim and required life-altering surgery to remove her right lung. Susan shocked her doctors by recovering over 90% of her normal lung capacity.

Ms. Wener is the first and only natural health consultant invited to sit on the Jewish General Hospital’s Gynecological Oncology Tumour Board. She is also a Trustee of the Jewish General Hospital Foundation Board.

Ms. Wener will share her amazing story and offer her insights on facing difficult times with hope and resilience.

This free webcast is open to all. We would like to thank the Zeller Family Foundation for sponsoring this episode of McGill Cares.
