Carrick Times - April 2016
Nicola Porter was off of work for almost a year as she underwent treatment for breast cancer.Throughout her time off, Porter made sure to remain in regular contact with her employer and received useful information from the Macmillan Cancer Support Group. This was all helpful in her eventual transition back to work.
Porter made a gradual return to work, phasing in beginning in March and making a return to full time work in May. She states she was eager to return to full time work.
