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
