No one is ever prepared to hear they have cancer. Yet, thousands of people are diagnosed with cancer each day.The good news is more and more research has shown a direct correlation between healthy lifestyle choices and the risk of getting cancer. People who exercise have less chance of getting cancer. And while there are no guarantees you can prevent cancer, being healthy will aid you in the treatment and recovery process. Working Out Cancer is a fitness site that focuses on cancer prevention and reducing the impact of cancer, if diagnosed.
When you hear a cancer diagnosis, it’s like the world starts spinning in a different direction and your focus immediately changes to how to get well.
Initially, everything seems overwhelming – from finding the right medical team to figuring out how to manage your personal and professional life. The best way to regain control is to be empowered – knowledge is power. Knowing what questions to ask, how to understand your pathology report, and keeping track of all your paperwork and expenses will give you much more control throughout your entire medical journey. I wrote the guidebook, Diagnosis: Breast Cancer – The Best Plan for Navigating Your Journey, to help other breast cancer patients be prepared and stay organized throughout their treatment and recovery process.
No matter where you are in your journey, I hope you take the necessary steps to make positive lifestyle choices. Working Out Cancer gives you the tools and resources you need to begin. Although there are many things in life we can’t control, this website is designed to help you with those you can.
