Research shows exercise can help cancer survivors. A cancer survivor is defined to be anyone who is touched by cancer, including patients, families, friends and caregivers. Exercise can prepare your body for difficult cancer treatments and some of the benefits include:
- Helping to manage treatment side effects
- Reducing fatigue
- Improving physical fitness
The Princess Margaret Wellness Exercise Program for Cancer Survivors (WE-Can) will be running a monthly Exercise Education Session. The session will be offered to cancer survivors and their families.
Attend a class to talk to a Kinesiologist who specializes in the study of muscular movement, especially the mechanics of human motion about:
- How exercise can help you
- How much exercise you can do
- How to exercise safely
- How to start your exercise plan
When: Every second Tuesday of the month. See the Calendar for dates and times.
