Exercise Oncology Explained

Research has shown exercise lowers our risk of cancer, but new studies are showing it can also be an effective therapy for those fighting cancer. Exercise therapy helps make cancer treatment more effective and allow people to recover faster when treatment is over.

However, most cancer therapies and treatment programs do not know about or how to advise their patients about exercise. One of our foundation’s goals is to promote promising research and therapies in exercise oncology as a key way to treat cancer and improve patients’ quality of life.

Our foundation seeks to change this by conducting and promoting research, including trials, to articulate more substantially the promising science of exercise and cancer. In the future, we believe doctors will provide advice and targeted exercise therapies that is specific to a person’s treatment and cancer type.
