Anne’s Story

‘I found I had so much more confidence’

Anne, a 36 year old teacher was diagnosed with breast cancer. Anne notified her insurer who recommended the Valion Health program as she was worried about her diagnosis and her treatment was causing her fatigue, loss of strength and poor sleep. With Valion Health Anne participated in nursing education, took part in regular exercise physiology sessions, consulted with one of our dietitians and joined one of our online yoga classes. Following the program Anne reported she was able to ride her bicycle and play her violin again, and start a graded return to work plan.

Rachel’s Story

‘The video calls enabled people to participate in the program in the comfort of their homes and not be stressed about arranging transport.’

Rachel was referred to our Cancer Support Program during her treatment for ovarian cancer. With a goal of returning to work, Rachel completed regular video calls with one of our expert Dietitians, Psychologists and Exercise Physiologists, with regular contact with her nursing care Coordinator. At the end of the program, Rachel had increased her exercise levels and improved her confidence in managing her health. She described feeling empowered and excited for the future, and met her return to work goal.
