Main description

The first Harvard doctor-approved workout book designed specifically for breast cancer survivors like you

When you are going through cancer treatments, the last thing you feel like doing is exercising--but it can be the key to your well-being and ultimate survival.

In an encouraging, compassionate "I’ve been there" tone, Dr. Carolyn Kaelin offers a wealth of practical advice, proven techniques, and much-needed support. Working with experienced Reebok master trainers and breast cancer survivors Josie Gardiner and Joy Prouty, she created a complete program of easy-to-follow exercises that anyone can do at home--even beginners. These safe, simple routines improve your flexibility and balance, rebuild your muscle, shore up your bones, and enhance your appearance, vitality, and all-around health.
