Marize was a saviour for me physically, mentally and emotionally.
I saw her during some very difficult times including hip replacement therapy, shoulder resurfacing, rehabbing from near fatal chemo-therapy toxicity, and an ankle injury. These all taking place within a two year period. Marize always has a positive attitude. Her skill, care, guidance, and knowledge helped me immeasurably. For instance, if it were not for her, I might never have known about chemo-brain. Chemo brain is a common term used by cancer survivors to describe thinking and memory problems that can occur after cancer treatment.
Due to her questions and given her knowledge working in the hospital system, she was not only able to help my physical issues, she brought to my attention a little-known but oh so common issue that arises post chemo treatment. As a result of her guidance, I was able to seek the help I needed to get my brain working again and most importantly have mind and body working well, and in tandem.
The issues I faced seemed enormous and complex yet Marize took my rehab quite literally one step at a time. Thanks to Marize’s excellent Physiotherapy, exercise (rehab) plans and emotional support, today I am in the gym 5-days a week.
