Cancer Fit

Just one in twenty people living with cancer in Yorkshire has taken part in a specialised exercise programme, according to a new survey by Yorkshire Cancer Research. That's despite evidence showing that being active before, during and after treatment can help improve survival rates and reduce the risk of the cancer coming back. The charity will be funding fitness programmes in Dewsbury, Pontefract, Wakefield and Harrogate which are due to start at the end of the year. But the one in Sheffield is well underway and cancer patients are already seeing the benefits.
