We provide cancer patients with the tools to forward their 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®.
The growth and impact of the Cancer Foundation For Life and FitSteps for Life relies on the leadership and passion of its Board of Directors. This November we will honor eight of these exemplary board members who have provided 10 or more years of board service:
Barbara Haas, PhD, RN
Sasha Vukelja, MD
Please join us in recognizing these individuals with giving hearts, in honoring the memory of Dr. Kimmel, and in advancing the 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.
Scientific studies continue to demonstrate the unprecedented benefits of exercise in cancer care. FitSteps for Life® provides these benefits to cancer patients while restoring hope, purpose, and meaning, moving them forward in their cancer journey.
