Following the loss of her best friend to cancer, ConsicousWorks CEO, Dr. Lisa Belanger founded a national registered charity that offers retreats to cancer survivors and their supporters across Canada.
Knight’s Cabin Cancer Retreats was created to be at the forefront of positive health behaviour change for those who have suffered from cancer. Weekend retreats are hosted across Canada where cancer survivors learn about research-based health behaviours that they can control and integrate into their daily routine to increase chances of success and overall well-being. Nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management are all explored while in a supportive community of other cancer survivors.
Survivors have the opportunity to bring a supporter with them, if a spouse, a family member, or a friend, as cancer has a significant impact on supporters as well as cancer survivors. Continual support and for long-term growth and wellbeing is offered for patients through online health behaviour change groups.
A portion of ConsciousWorks' talks, workshops, and consulting services is donated directly to the Knight's Cabin Foundation.
