A cancer diagnosis can be debilitating,
not only for your body

but also for your mind.

Most patients feel overwhelmed, and it can easily lead them to forget about taking care of themselves while battling their condition. Research indicates that compared to the general population, cancer patients and survivors engage in fewer activities. It could be brought on by discomfort, worry about the ensuing agony or a shortage of supplies and knowledge.

This is where cancer fitness programs can be helpful for the rehabilitation of cancer patients as well as survivors.

Introduction to Cancer Fitness

What is Cancer Fitness?

Welcome to the world of Cancer Fitness with cancer surgeon and specialist Dr. Jay Harness. With this initiative, Dr. Harness aims to enlighten both patients and doctors about the benefits of exercise as an adjunctive care measure to make cancer recovery a truly positive and meaningful journey.

Cancer Fitness involves individualized tailored exercise programs for those going through cancer treatments and post-treatment survivors. Exercise should be an essential component of every multidisciplinary cancer treatment program.

Regular exercise can significantly enhance both physical and mental health during all stages of treatment, according to multiple studies conducted over decades. An exercise program tailored to your specific needs can help you resume an active lifestyle, even if you were not active before your cancer diagnosis.
