    Exercise medicine is a relatively inexpensive cancer treatment, highly effective and safe if prescribed correctly, and has no side effects! Patient quality of life and potentially quantity of life is improved. Targeted exercise reduces the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, supports the patient to prepare for and recover from surgery, and actually increases the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation therapy!


    I never knew exercise could be a critical part of my cancer management. I feel so empowered to take an active role in my medical care. The resources and tools provided are fantastic and the FitMed app really keeps me motivated.

    Regular exercise has never been a part of my life and I had no idea how to even start. Being 73 years old and having prostate cancer I was scared that I might do something wrong and injure myself or worse. This book is easy to read and quite funny in places which helped me to stay engaged. The examples are motivating and knowing more about how to exercise to help treat my cancer really got me off teh couch.

    You read so many different ideas and recommendations on the Internet but I was worried what was accurate and based in science. The author really explains the science clearly and simply. I want to do everything I can to help my mother through this cancer journey and this book gave me so many ways to actively support her.
