Eating well and exercising regularly, can improve your muscle strength, cardiovascular fitness and stamina, as well as your self-esteem and overall quality of life, especially as you complete your cancer treatment and look ahead.
Regular exercise can also help reduce nausea, pain and fatigue, as well as assist in combating anxiety and depression.
