Testimonials

After being diagnosed with cancer in 2014 and undergoing surgery and chemotherapy, I was keen to try and rebuild my fitness. It was hard to know what exercise was appropriate whilst navigating the side affects of treatment, recovering from major abdominal surgery and having had a portacath fitted.

Being able to remain active during treatment helped me retain some normality and provided a sense of achievement.

Physical exercise has played such a big role for me in emotionally coping with treatment and adapting to living with cancer.

My fitness is something over which I have control and maintaining a decent level of fitness can only be a good thing if I’m faced with further surgery or treatment for my cancer in the future.”
