exercise and cancer

About Cancer Foundation For Life®

If you had cancer and learned there was a “wonder drug” that could save your life, would you take it? Would you invest in this drug that increases cancer survival by 50 percent?

That extraordinary drug is exercise.

Cancer Foundation For Life® has been administering this drug for more than 17 years. Through FitSteps for Life® we have seen that exercise delivers unprecedented and immediate benefits to cancer patients both emotionally and physically.

Established in 2001, Cancer Foundation For Life® is the only-known nonprofit organization that offers a scientific-based, community cancer rehabilitation program in the United States that is free for the patient’s lifetime. FitSteps for Life® is designed to assist cancer survivors in achieving optimal functional mobility and endurance during their cancer experience.

Cancer Foundation For Life®’s mission is to enhance the quality of life and survival for individuals living with cancer, while also empowering cancer survivors to participate in their journey to recovery. Our compassionate and caring staff provides them with tools at diagnosis, during and after treatment to remain active throughout life.

Identity is one of the greatest benefits of FitSteps for Life®. Patients become part of a community with other cancer survivors experiencing similar challenges—someone who really walks in their shoes. Every day, we renew our commitment to our values of caring, integrity, and growth as we continue to improve the quality of life for cancer survivors. Rest assured, we’ll be both at the forefront and by your side.

We transform cancer patients one step at a time.
