    DescriptionMost of us know that exercise is good for you. It helps you feel good and live well. But once you are diagnosed with cancer, exercise can become a tool for treatment and prevention. Being physically active can help you:

    • tolerate and complete your cancer treatments
    • maintain and increase energy levels
    • improve mood and aid in stress management
    • sleep better at night
    • reduce your risk of cancer recurrence and developing new cancers

    If you are new to exercise or need a kick-start back into exercising regularly, then Exercise 101 is for you!

    During this five-week small group series, you will learn exercise fundamentals and basic movements to help with endurance, strength, balance, and flexibility using resistance bands, body weight, and light hand weights. You’ll learn to how exercise at home and how to make exercise part of your daily routine. Taught by Sara Weideman, OT.

    Fee: Free through funding by the Columbia St. Mary’s Foundation.

    Registration is required as space is limited. Open to CSM Cancer Center patients, both in and out of treatment, with clearance from their Cancer Center physician. To register and learn more, contact:
    Laura Stratte, Survivorship Navigator, 414-298-7247
