Exercise tips for cancer survivors (and caregivers)


Recommended Posts

Dr. Anna L. Schwartz, author of this article, is an esteemed cancer researcher whose expertise lies in exercise for treatment of cancer-related fatigue. Since I've recently recommended simple exercises to treat shortness of breath on this site, I thought some people here might wish to read more on cancer & exercise. This is a brief overview of exercise for people with cancer. No reason why caregivers cannot use these tips, though.

I agree completely, Lisa. Realistically, people just need to know how to increase their activity levels, not how to be world-class athletes.

By the way, Anna Schwartz was on my dissertation committee. I found the article while looking for contact information for her - she is now at a different university. She is one smart nurse!
