Our Mission Statement
To promote unity and wellness amongst our class while engaging friends, family and community members in the support of Steps to Wellness, a medically based rehabilitation and research program that serves the unique needs of Cancer Survivors.
Steps to Wellness, helps survivors maintain function during initial oncology therapy and provides a pathway toward improved fitness and quality of life after initial therapy. The program includes a physical therapy evaluation, medical assessment, individualized exercise prescription, education and the collection of physiologic and psychological measures to evaluate and improve the program. This research will enhance understanding of the potential benefits of rehabilitation for cancer survivors.
