JGH&W is a website serving the cancer community seeking health and wellness education, financial management, personal development, and overall balance and serenity in their life. JGH&W is a place to make connections with those who strive to uplift, educate and empower.
The inspiration for JGH&W.com came from a blog that Janice Woerner wrote in 2010 when first diagnosed with breast cancer. Now she welcomes all bloggers to contribute and share with her audience.

This website was created for all those affected by cancer including those currently being treated, newly diagnosed, caregivers, friends and family. The mission is to educate and uplift. We’re all in this together!
Janice’s cancer journey began in 2010 when she was diagnosed with DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma In Situ). In addition, she was told she would be unable to conceive a child. One year later, her daughter was conceived naturally crediting restorative yoga in helping her body heal and increasing her fertility. In 2015, the cancer had returned and Janice underwent a bilateral mastectomy. She suffered an infection in her tissue expanders that required additional reconstructive surgeries. She now offers free workshops to help women prepare and recover from their mastectomy or lumpectomy surgeries.
Janice is now parlaying her Occupational Therapy practice into private cancer coaching and patient education workshops. Her focus is post-mastectomy or lumpectomy physical rehabilitation to gain function, increase range of motion and decrease pain.

What is an Occupational Therapist? An Occupational Therapist’s education is based in areas of anatomy, kinesiology, neuroscience and developmental psychology, just to name a few. This knowledge base parlays into our training to focus on goal-setting, problem-solving and client-centered interventions in order to help you attain your highest level of independence and functioning. “Wellness” is defined by YOU, the client!
