Cancer and Exercise
Keeping active before, during and after cancer treatment can help both your physical and mental health.
Some of the benefits of regular exercise include:
- Help to reduce fatigue
- Improve mood and positivity
- Increase strength, balance and mobility
- Help to maintain independence and complete daily tasks.
