Exercise Programs for Patients and Survivors“I have learned through personal experience as a cancer patient, as an athlete, and now through careful scientific study with nonathletes that exercise can strengthen not only your body but also your soul.” ―From the Introduction
Increase your survival odds by creating and following an exercise program that counteracts the side effects of your treatment, speeds your recovery, and reduces your risk of recurrence. Most cancer patients and survivors think that "rest" will decrease their fatigue and speed their recovery. But in fact, rest can make patients weak and debilitated during treatment and may prolong hospitalization.
