About Bounce Back From Breast Cancer
Hi, I'm Kate Perkins, the founder of Bounce Back From Breast Cancer.
If you are recovering from Breast Cancer treatment, or have just been diagnosed and are preparing for surgery soon, then know you are in the right place.

I developed The Bounce Back From Breast Cancer online community and training programs because I wanted to reach as many women as possible going through treatment for Breast Cancer, are in recovery, or are well and truly in the fitness phase of their breast cancer rehabilitation.

I know there are women who just don't have access to the type of services I provide and find it very difficult to recover from treatment, with loss of strength, movement and energy.

The first step is with The Foundation Program where I have created a 22 exercise video library of exercises with detailed instructions, starting with the very basics of posture, correct movement patterns, and giving the 'why' you would perform the exercises or movements. I want women to feel confident to perform these exercises in the comfort of their own home, and know that they can actually do the program. I see women all the time come out the other end of their treatment stronger than before their diagnosis.

I've also created a supportive and dynamic Online Community  of Bounce Back Babes for women who have completed the Foundation Program. With live online exercise sessions every week, expert presenters and enthusiastic coaches all available to members so they never feel alone.

I'm looking forward to helping YOU bounce back from breast cancer treatment faster, stronger and full of energy.

Pre-Surgery
Prepare your body before you start treatment for breast cancer, and that also means before you start neo-adjuvant chemotherapy, which happens before surgery or other related treatments. Get to know why specific postural and correct movement patterns will help you regain strength, movement, and energy faster.

Post Surgery
It is so natural to want to adopt a protective posture post breast cancer surgery, and not want to use the affected arm/s. This can contribute to loss of shoulder range of movement and function, can inhibit breathing patterns, and optimal lymphatic function. That is why it is important to get moving as soon as possible post surgery with guided exercises.
Recovery
You might be ready to get back to the gym, but don't know where to start. You don't want to risk injury by not performing weights or resistance exercises properly. This program will guide you and contribute to your repertoire of exercises so you are confident to increase your strength, movement, and energy.

Some Love From Our Members

BBFBC Has given me the motivation to do exercise in a non- judgemental platform. Where exercises are designed at a level for what you can handle. It gives u a voice to ask questions with people that get your journey and understand what u have been through.





Denise Prendergast
Thankyou for taking the time to do this for us online. I did Plates before I developed cancer and I never returned back again. Motivation is sometimes hard but you somehow get me to the screen and connection you don't feel you're the only one. I wish I had this in 2010 but I am making up for it now. I work so my time is morning or at the end of a busy day. Being educated is a continuing subject and very important you think you know everything but you don't. I am learning a lot.
Monica Johnstone
Connection and motivation for me too. Motivation is so important through diagnosis, treatment and beyond. I never would have imagined I could exercise through treatment. And the feeling of connection helps through all the highs and lows.





What Breast Cancer Experts Say
Andrea Mangion
Graduated and properly prescribed exercise programs are highly evidence-based to benefit cancer patients before, during, and after breast cancer treatment. Empowering yourself with high-quality education is important. If you have lymphoedema, having exercise prescribed by a lymphoedema therapist means that the program will consider your lymphoedema needs, such as avoiding any exercises that can make you swell more."


Andrea Mangion, honorary lecturer at Macquarie University and Lymphoedema Physiotherapist. 
Professor John Boyages
All women should be prescribed exercise after being diagnosed with breast cancer, according to the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia (COSA) guidelines. "As doctors we really need to actively think about weight, nutrition and exercise and advise about possible interventions. Weight gain is common after breast cancer treatment and many patients assume they will lose weight. Weight gain adds to self-esteem problems, increases the risk of heart disease and other cancers and several reports suggest it may affect prognosis and also increases the risk of arm swelling (lymphoedema). Prescribing a healthy lifestyle is just as important as prescribing tablets".
Professor John Boyages AM, radiation oncologist at Icon Cancer Centre
