David often blogs about programs and campaigns underway at the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance, as well as creative fitness ideas for those dealing with cancer, while creating relationships with similar organizations.
Most people know that fitness is important, but a string of recent studies from various cancer foundations prove just how important fitness really is. According to various studies, fitness is a great aid for cancer patients, no matter what stage of cancer they are in.
While fitness may benefit certain cancer patients more than others that does not reduce its importance. Certainly, cancer patients with a rare or aggressive form of cancer, such as mesothelioma, may require extra attention from a doctor. However, even these patients can benefit from fitness.
Exercise has multiple benefits, all of which are linked to help cancer patients reduce their side effects. Of course, fitness is not a miracle cure, but it can greatly improve a patient’s life’s quality.
