The Pink Ribbon Program
Exercise may be the last thing you feel like doing after breast cancer surgery. You're probably exhausted, your arm may be
painful and swollen, and the adjuvant treatments can make you feel even worse. All you want to do is rest. In the past, that's
exactly what doctors recommended. However, recent studies indicate a link between moderate physical exercise and
improved quality of life for breast cancer survivors.
We are dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle and positive body image to all breast cancer survivors. The Pink Ribbon
Program will help stretch and strengthen the shoulder, chest, back, and abdominal muscles, allowing women to regain full
range of motion to those areas affected by breast cancer surgery. This program is suitable whether your surgery was recent
or several years ago and accommodates all fitness levels.
