We provide cancer patients with the tools to forward your life beyond cancer. By building strength and a sense of empowerment, you gain hope, peace, and a new meaning and sense of value for life in your fight against cancer. 


Help us educate patients about the importance of exercise and its role in cancer treatment. Benefits of increased treatment effectiveness, improved immune system, mitigation of chemotherapy side effects, and survival up to 50% are significant in the treatment of cancer. 


Become a leader in oncology care by offering a comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plan including exercise prescription. Helping patients achieve the desired outcomes of your prescribed treatment gives them ownership in their battle against cancer.


Are you passionate about cancer or exercise? Volunteer your time, care, and passion to support patients through their cancer journey and help them reach their health and fitness goals. There are many ways you can donate to Cancer Foundation for Life.


We offer the FitSteps for Life® program as the pioneer and leader in cancer exercise treatment, prescribing individualized and structured exercise treatment plans specifically for cancer patients. It is the only known community-based program that is provided free for the lifetime of the patient.
