A Valuable Tool for Physicians, Nurses and Physical Therapists

The Strength & Courage DVD is also available in bulk quantities for physicians, nurses and physical therapists to give to breast cancer patients after surgery. Hospitals such as Magee-Women’s Hospital of UPMC now give a Strength & Courage: Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors DVD to every woman who has breast cancer surgery.

Developed after years of research and with exercise recommendations from Magee-Women's Hospital of UPMC, University of Pennsylvania and University of Alberta, Strength & Courage is a safe, proven program that benefits women who have had surgeries such as a lumpectomy, mastectomy, sentinel node biopsy, and is especially beneficial for axillary node dissection.

Dr. Gretchen Ahrendt, an experienced breast cancer surgeon at Magee-Women’s Hospital, says the DVD is very beneficial for her patients, stating "It's easier and more helpful to give my patient a DVD that demonstrates the necessary exercises rather than a written handout."
