For people going through cancer treatment or recovery, the thought of working out may seem overwhelming. But more and more research is proving that exercise has many benefits for cancer patients, including:
Enhances mood and reduces anxiety
Improved ability to perform daily tasks
Improved cardiovascular endurance and muscular strength
Reconditions lymph systems compromised by surgery or radiation
Reduced fatigue, pain and nausea
Refocuses energy from illness to wellness
