Alicia Freeborn is a Social Service Worker student who supported her mother in 2018 through stage four lung cancer and a medically assisted death. Afterwards, Alicia helped develop the Bridge C-14 10-Week Peer Support Group (formerly known as the MAID Grief Recovery Group). Through this program, she found the connection to others with lived experience to be incredibly helpful in her healing and processing of grief. Since then, Alicia has been a group facilitator with Bridge C-14 where she supported many of their drop-in sessions and 10-week groups and volunteers 1:1 with others in the Bridge4You Program. With her work, she was also the recipient of the 2021 Dr. John D. Morgan Student Scholarship offered by the Bereavement Ontario Network.
