There is extremely compelling evidence to suggest that if people are physically active before, during and after cancer treatment, their outcomes are likely to be better. Their risk of recurrence (and death) is lower and their ability to deal with the myriad side effects is improved significantly. Increasingly people with cancer understand this but they are often unsure of what exercise would be best, what is safest, what would be most effective and what to avoid. This book offers very practical, targeted information to enable people to exercise in whatever way they feel ready for. It provides guidance on effective and appropriate exercise for anybody who has received a diagnosis of cancer, including those receiving active treatment and those living with incurable cancer of all types, with the emphasis on the proven benefits of exercise and activity.
