Looking after kids is tough enough when everyone's healthy and strong. When illness is added to the mix, it's a whole other story.

Dr Elysia Thornton-Benko has opened a centre called Wellac Lifestyle to help support people going through, and recovering from cancer treatment. She explains how the centre works, and why it’s open to the entire family (not just the patient).

For more about the Wellac Lifestyle centre check out their website.
