Walk it Off

Benefits of Exercise for Cancer Patients 

The benefits of exercise for cancer patients are well known:  in both younger and older patients, physical activity improves quality of life, reduces fatigue and shortness of breath, and speeds recovery after surgery.

More than just a feel-good remedy, moderate physical activity, such as walking 3-5 hours per week,  reduces the risk of cancer recurrence and significantly improves survival after treatment.
