Strength & Courage: Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors

If you’re ready to regain your muscle tone and mobility following breast cancer surgery, all it takes is Strength & Courage. Developed by breast cancer survivors and medical experts, the Strength & Courage: Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors DVD strives to enhance your ability to lead an active life following breast cancer surgery.

Starting with exercises that you can initiate one day after surgery, the program guides you all the way through a more rigorous stretching and weight training regimen. An integral part of any breast cancer rehabilitation program, Strength and Courage also includes guidelines for aerobic exercise, which has been proven to reduce breast cancer recurrence.
