Our Story
Getting Better Needs to Get Better.
A few years ago, Heather Campbell was in her doctor's office and heard the words no one wants to hear, “You have to have surgery.” It set off a cascade of emotions, with equal parts anxiousness, confusion and fear.
Normally upbeat and positive, she was suddenly stressed and sad.
So, she started asking friends who'd gone through surgery what they had done to prepare. No one could point her to a solution. She looked for programs specifically geared toward surgery. Once again, she couldn't find anything. Apparently, everyone
just suffered through it
. She kept asking herself,
“With millions of people having surgery every year, how could there be nothing out there to help them during one of the most critical times in their lives?”
With a strong wellness practice already in place and in need of answers, Heather read books on healing, talked to doctors about best approaches when preparing for surgery, and searched for scientifically proven methods for improving health.
Then she took everything she learned about surgery and healing, combined it with elements of wellness programs she'd previously done and built a simple-to-follow daily action plan for herself.
It worked. She was calm throughout the entire process and had a remarkably smooth recovery.
She told her surgeon what she'd done to prepare, and he said he wished every patient had a program like hers to support themselves.
She took his advice and wrote a series of emails, with each day dedicated to a different topic and told some people about it. Word got out and people signed up. The feedback was phenomenal. One person said it was like someone was holding their hand and guiding them through a dark tunnel. Another person, who was a nurse, said she was familiar with a lot of the information, but the program helped her actually put it into practice.
Realizing there was a legitimate need, Heather brought in a dedicated, mission-driven team to turn the email project into a fully-featured, interactive program specifically designed to provide the help for others she wished existed when she needed it.
We hope you'll join the many people who have discovered the benefits of Ready Set Recover.
