“The Cancer Exercise Program inspired me to exercise throughout the duration of all my treatments. Because I stayed fit, I was less fatigued during chemo, recovered quickly from surgery and sustained good flexibility during radiation. I recommend the Cancer Exercise Program to all cancer patients who want to stay active and keep motivated.” – Ashley

“Lifemark Physiotherapists working the Cancer Exercise Program are extremely knowledgeable, motivating, friendly and helpful. They recommended specific exercises catered to my own physical challenges during my treatments. As a result, I bounced back quicker and experienced less pain.” – Anonymous
