Welcome

YES, cancer survivors should exercise!
The American Cancer Society (ACS) and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) published minimum standards of activity that's beneficial for cancer survivors. Thirty minutes a day of moderate activity, 5 days a week, or, 20 minutes a day 3 times a week of vigorous activity. Your activity doesn't need to be done all at once, it can be broken into segments, maybe 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes later in the day. As you grow stronger, you'll find it easier to become more active. Read the ACSM study.
