Training is designed to help patients and survivors who may be suffering from effects caused by surgery and treatment. Debi will teach exercises designed to help heal and improve physical and emotional quality of life post cancer treatment.
Some cancer patients think that rest will decrease fatigue and hasten recovery, however rest may make cancer patients weaker and more drained of energy. This training offers patients and survivors a proactive way to improve their health and reclaim their lives past cancer.
