pledge your support now for joined up thinking on the importance of exercise programmes during and after cancer treatment!

So our idea is that we get as many comments as possible from as many people as possible, about the importance of exercise, preferably in fresh air.. during and after cancer treatments. Whatever you think about it, please reply to this post on this site and hopefully we can get loads of comments and take those to some politicians and health care practitioners who have some influence. It’s so difficult to get exercise referral programmes if you have a cancer diagnosis and yet so much evidence is there (see Reka’s earlier postings)… so please help us tell the government we need joined up thinking on exercise referral, targeted resources going into exercise programmes specifically for people being treated for cancer and much, much greater awareness of the importance of some form of exercise every day during chemo, radiotherapy, post treatment, between treatments…. These are the times that it’s really hard to find the motivation to have that walk in the park, get on your bike, whatever and yet, with enough encouragement from professional people and resources to help you…. all the evidence says not only will it improve your quality of life but could actually help in management of cancer. So look at the evidence and if you agree, reply to this blog posting… even if its just to say ‘good luck’.. the more signatures the better… Thank you, thank you! 1 day to go!
