Fatigue is a common side effect of cancer treatment that may be helped
with regular exercise, and the
Peitz Cancer Support House (PCSH) is proud to offers free exercise programs. Most people feel better
when they get some exercise, and maintaining a healthy weight may also
help with cancer prevention.

and Thursdays. This exercise program is specifically designed for cancer
