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. Whether the woman had a lumpectomy or mastectomy, a sentinel node biopsy or axillary node dissection, she will benefit from the exercises in Strength & Courage. The program is especially helpful to women who had an axillary node dissection. Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC now gives a Strength & Courage: Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors DVD to every woman who has breast cancer surgery.

Dr. Gretchen Ahrendt, a breast cancer surgeon at Magee-Womens Hospital who has treated breast cancer patients for over 10 years, recently shared with Dr. Cowden that the DVD is very beneficial for her patients. Dr. Ahrendt said, “It’s easier and more helpful to give my patient a DVD that demonstrates the necessary exercises rather than a written handout.”

The program presented in Strength & Courage was developed after years of research. Exercises recommended are from Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, University of Pennsylvania and University of Alberta. Health care providers can be assured this is a well researched and complete program which is safe and beneficial for a breast cancer patient.
