Hi Dawn.

My best friend I met at Project Livestrong at the YMCA had lung cancer and just stopped chemotherapy after 8 years. Project Livestrong was a free program for cancer survivors. 5-6 survivors work twice a week for 9 weeks with a group trainer.

They evaluated us the first and last day, and had us do an aerobic activity each time, lower body weight machines on Monday, and upper body weight machines on Wednesday. Before the first day, I had never set foot in a gym, and could hardly hobble in from the car. After 3 weeks my neuropathy didn't keep me awake at night any more.
And I was amazed at how much more strength and energy I had.

The program was free, and we had full use of the YMCA for the 9 weeks of the program. I started using their pool and taking classes out there, and discovered that I had no peripheral neuropathy pain if I exercised in the deep water daily.

So I do.

I guess I'll never know if the initial cancer treatments have kept away any relapse, or if the anti angiogenic foods I'm eating and all the exercise is doing it's job. But I'm not going back to the way I was living before cancer. I definitely feel better than I ever have before.

Good luck to you. If I can help at all, just let me know.

BTW: The Livestrong Program has 2 manuals which are available free online (you only pay postage). You can order them if you can't find a program to attend.

I'd recommend those books to anyone when they first get a cancer diagnosis. Lots of good information.

I'd recommend the program to all cancer survivors. If you can find a program near you, all you need is your doctor to complete a form.

Welcome Dawn,
I'm sorry to hear about your mets. You are doing a good thing my trying to eal healthy and exercise. Dr. Block has a great book about living with cancer and diet and exercise. His view is that the QOL is improved for everyone dealing with cancer no matter what the stage by continuing to exercise at whatever level you can.

I just finished treatment for stage 2b triple negative breast cancer which is a very agressive form of breast cancer. I'm a big believer in a whole foods, clean diet and exercise. I hope that it helps you in your own journey.

Hugs,
Kay

Hello, my name is Dawn and I joined this team because I have metastasized endometrial cancer in both lungs. I finished my chemo treatment in February and now on anti estrogen medicines. The tumors are shrinking but still there, so I have a long way to go yet. I'm trying to do my part with diet and exercise to help my body fight this. Its slow going but each day my stamina and strength gets a little better, I don't get as winded, and I'm making better food choices. So hello to all, here's to everyone's health and beating cancer!!

When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food, and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies with yourself.
