Too often when cancer patients have finished with their treatment, they are sent out the hospital door with a handshake but very little guidance on how to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Doctors may not think of the role of exercise in returning to good health and preventing recurrence, but research is accumulating on its value. Find out how exercise can help cancer survivors and others with chronic disease. And learn how exercise can be tailored for individual needs.
