‘Survive and Thrive’ is a wellness program for women cancer survivors.
As the population is aging and growing more people will experience cancer than ever before; however, at the same time, survival rates are improving and there are more cancer survivors than ever before. One of the main fears of cancer survivors is the fear of recurrence. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that especially for breast, uterine, colon and rectal cancers, weight loss and physical activity may decrease the risk of recurrence and at the same time improve anxiety and depression. This is the basis for the Survive and Thrive program. The program was created to empower women who go through cancer treatment to achieve and maintain a healthy life style to decrease the chance of cancer recurrence.
Our mission enables cancer survivors within our community to thrive in their life post-treatment.
