More and more scientific research is showing that regular physical activity during and after cancer treatment can help survivors.

In this podcast, 2 fitness instructors from the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program discuss these challenges, share tips for staying physically active, and describe the sometimes surprising benefits of participating in a fitness program specially designed for cancer survivors.share on twitter
