Janes’s story – Thanking a Caregiver with the gift of MCC At 82 years old, my mom never thought she would get her mobility back. After knee surgery and months of recovery, it was the dedicated support of Trish, the physiotherapist, who encouraged mom to walk again. As Mom recuperated, she listened to music on her ipad – it helped distract her from the pain and helped her rest. Trish blessed us as a family and offering to send her to the MCC is our way of saying thanks.
