Diagnosis of Cancer is a devastating reality for the patient as well as the family. Life as it existed ceases to exist with the whirlwind of doctor's appointments, medical testing etc.
Did you know that the Benefits and Effects of Physical Activity and Fitness on healthy individuals are numerous? While the benefits of physical activity and fitness on someone fighting breast or prostate cancer can mean life or death?
As a four year survivor of Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma and an Exercise professional, I saw a need for more fitness and wellness activities for those battling cancer and their caretakers. As a cancer survivor, I can personally attest to the benefits of having participated in fitness and wellness activities prior to and during my cancer treatment. Fitness helped me to maintain my weight and muscle tone during chemotherapy, and reduce the stress of the associated financial hardships.
I believe wellness activities should be a part of the standard treatment, making it accessible to all, not just those with ideal medical insurance and that is why I became a Cancer Exercise Specialist and founded the Fitness Angels 501c3.
The mission of the Fitness Angels is to provide fitness and wellness activities and events to uplift and enhance the quality of life of breast and prostate cancer patients and/or in some cases the caregiver.
We provide Yoga, Meditation, Breast/Prostate Cancer Recovery and Post-operative Group Fitness classes, Personal training, Reiki, Massage therapy, Mental Health counseling and educational events to help improve the quality of life by focusing on providing these services by qualified professionals in a safe and loving environment conducive to healing the mind body and spirit.
