Exercise for Cancer Survivors: Getting Your Life, and Your Body, Back After Treatment

September 7, 2008
by Amanda MacMillan for

I tend to think of this weekly fitness blog as being for people who are, well, fit. I take for granted the fact that Iím healthy, active, and able to do things like run and swim without a second thought. But a New York Times article this week reminded me that for people who arenít so luckyóthose who are being treated for or are recovering from cancerófitness is just as important, if not more. As specialized exercise classes spring up around the country and doctors increasingly encourage their patients to get moving, itís becoming clear that fitness should be a part of any cancer recovery plan.
