Doncaster people urged to get active after cancer

YOU may not know that being active during and after cancer treatment has many benefits. It can reduce the sense of isolation, reduce side effects, improve strength, aerobic fitness and flexibility.

Caroline Wright, a Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Specialist, said: “Physical activity is an important part of cancer recovery and rehabilitation.

“People who have had cancer can be unsure about doing exercise, we’re encouraging people to get back to hobbies they enjoyed before cancer, whether that’s going to the gym, line dancing or gardening.

“Our team of cancer information specialists will be visiting Doncaster town centre on Wednesday 15 February, 2017 to answer questions, provide support and inform people about local cancer services and ways they can get active to suit their needs.”

Drop by and talk to the team on Macmillan’s Mobile Information Bus on Wednesday 15 February (10am – 4pm). Find the bus team at Clock Corner, next to Frenchgate.
