The Bounce Back from Breast Cancer Program
Exercise allows you to maintain or improve your physical abilities, balance and muscle mass, as well as reducing cancer-related side effects and decreasing the likelihood of cancer coming back.

What many people don't realise is it can be a long road to recovery, once breast cancer treatment has finished. They ask "how can I get back to doing the things I love quickly and get the most out of my life?"

The Bounce Back from Breast Cancer Program is specially designed to do just that – improve strength, flexibility and self-confidence so you can get back to doing the things you love sooner.
 
So what are the experts saying? 
 
The Clinical Oncology Society of Australia (COSA) stated in their position paper in May 2018, that evidence demonstrates that regular exercise before, during, and after treatment for cancer:
 
  • Decreases the severity of adverse affects of associated treatments including chemotherapy;
  • Improves physical function including cardiovascular fitness; muscular strength; and functional ability
  • Increases energy levels;
  • Improves quality of life
  • Increases bone density
  • Increases self-esteem
  • Reduces the risk of cancer related death
  • Reduces the risk of cancer recurrence
  • Reduces the likelihood of developing breast cancer related lymphoedema (BCRL)
  • Reduces the likelihood of developed BCRL becoming worse
  • Improves posture; breathing; and functional movement
  • Helps reduce weight gain
