We are beginning our series on Cancer and Exercise this June with a discussion on how exercise can help cancer patients/survivors. The discussion will be co-hosted by prostate cancer survivor and advocate Richard Davis. We have an amazing panel of experts - Dr. Donald Abrams and Dr. June Chan from UCSF, Dr. Lee Jones from MSKCC, and cancer fitness trainer Carol Michaels.
The discussion will touch upon various aspects of exercising while being treated with cancer and try to answer questions like, Why and how does exercise work to help fight cancer?, What should you know about resuming exercise after surgery? Should you continue exercise during chemotherapy? and even provide practical advice on how and where to exercise, and how to find cancer specialized trainers.
