Jane McLelland, Chartered Physiotherapist & Author
Jane is Winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award 2019 ‘Amazing Women Global’ for unsung heroines, for her work educating and helping cancer patients since 2003. She is trained as a Chartered Physiotherapist, gaining a distinction in her exams and winning the Sarah Leeson Memorial Award for the most promising student. After qualifying she worked in the NHS and private practice for 12 years specialising in Neurology and then Orthopaedics when she left the profession to pursue more entrepreneurial endeavours. In 2002 she launched a range of toiletries and a uniquely-designed waterproof book under the brand name BATHrobics and the following year she won the coveted UK Gift of the Year Award. Throughout this time (from 1994 until 2004), Jane battled two aggressive cancers with metastatic spread, both were classed as ‘terminal’. Using her medical knowledge and researching heavily, she put together a cancer-starving formula, using natural therapies, exercise and diet. When she developed a second cancer, myelodyspasia, the result of chemotherapy and radiotherapy for her first cancer, she knew she only had weeks to live. With nothing to lose, she put together a unique cocktail of old drugs. To her enormous relief, joy and surprise, her cancer just ‘melted away’. Her cocktail was more powerful than she had ever hoped.
