EP 159-Straight Talk with Dr. Edo McGee-Pharmacist, Mindset Coach, Thriver, and Founder of S.E.W. Wellness
Dr. Edo McGee is a 5-year breast cancer Thriver and the CEO/Founder of S.E.W. Wellness. They serve breast cancer patients from the start of diagnosis and beyond through survivorship to support, and empower them to prioritize their mental health as a critical part of overall wellness during their recovery journey.
Dr. McGee talks about how she went from a high achieving pharmacist/educator to diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017 at 33 with a 3 yr old. She followed her treatment from starting chemo to surgery but the whole time after hearing her diagnosis she had become depressed, anxious, and hopeless. While unpacking the mental aftermath of the diagnosis with a licensed therapist, she discovered that the missing link to her recovery was mental wellness. The transformation came when she discovered the role of a certified peer mental health specialist that used a wellness recovery framework. She realized how much it helped her so she became certified herself. Now she can help young high achievers, diagnosed with breast cancer, to identify their goals, hopes, and dreams with the help of a mindset breast cancer coach.
There are several options to choose from at SEW Wellness including group coaching virtually by partnering with cancer institutions to serve as a wellness program for patients receiving treatment and beyond, cancer care packages for family members and friends looking to support a survivor during treatment; and FREE 10-day mental health wellness challenges.

● How early detection saved her
● How she became depressed, anxious and felt helpless after her diagnosis
