Why is exercise important for cancer suffers?
Importantly, for cancer sufferers, exercise can boost energy after treatment and help to reduce side effects of treatment. It can also be beneficial for those with long-term illnesses such as lymph oedema, anxiety, depression and impaired mobility, as well as aiding the recovery of physical function, managing fatigue, improving quality of life and mental health, and controlling body weight.
