Physical Wellness Programs

Staying active during and after cancer treatment can help keep your body strong and help you feel better.

Your cancer team will recommend the amount of activity which is safe for you, and may recommend wellness classes designed specifically for cancer survivors.

Peg, a cancer survivor, explains the difference physical wellness classes made in her treatment. A physical wellness instructor, Shanda, also speaks about what teaching these classes means to her.
