Exercise for Cancer Survivors - PCSH Cancer Wellness Group

Regular exercise can help to ease some side effects of treatment, such as fatigue. Exercise can improve your ability to complete normal activities of daily living, lower the risk of anxiety or depression, and improve your quality of life. Exercise is also beneficial in reducing cancer recurrence.

The Cancer Wellness Group is a free exercise program specifically designed for cancer patients in all stages of treatment and recovery. As in any exercise program, please consult your physician before beginning.

Exercise sessions are held every Tuesday & Thursday from 9:30 AM till 11:30 AM in the Knox Wellness Center. Sessions can be individualized to your abilities and needs.

Pre-registration is required to obtain a gym access card. For more information please contact the Peitz Cancer Support House at 870-508-2273.
