One More Chance to See ‘Rise Above’ DocumentaryOne More Chance to See ‘Rise Above’ Documentary

If you missed the first screening of the Cape Wellness Collaborative (CWC) documentary “Rise Above,” you’ll have another chance to view it on Tuesday, December 7, at the Chatham Orpheum Theater. The one-hour documentary is about Sarah Swain’s moving experience of losing her mother to cancer and how it inspired her to help people on the Cape facing cancer. Swain’s vision led to the creation of CWC and its signature fundraisers, Dancing With The Docs and Cape Cod Women’s Music Festival.

As CWC provides free-of-charge integrative wellness therapies for people facing cancer, it has offered an important service to our oncology patients. The film features appearances by several Cape Cod Healthcare doctors, including Dr. Jill Oxley, Dr. Tara Chute, Dr. Kumara Sidhartha, Dr. Molly Sullivan and Executive Director of Oncology, Katherine Michaud.

The event on Tuesday, December 7 at 7 p.m., will culminate with a conversation with Sarah Swain; Bruce Bierhans, president of Cape Wellness Collaborative; Martina Duffy Mehl, a breast cancer survivor; Abigail Field, the new CEO of Cape Wellness Collaborative; Gabrielle Kennedy, a natural foods chef; and Jeni Wheeler, Executive Chef and Founder of Jeni’s Joy. The discussion will be moderated by best-selling author Anne D. LeClaire.

All proceeds will support Cape Wellness Collaborative. Complimentary and specially prepared individual bento boxes will be provided by Jeni Wheeler of Jeni’s Joy. Tickets are $50. For more information and tickets, visit
