"As a physician specializing in cancer therapy, I have seen the dramatic differences between women who are physically active after the diagnosis of cancer and those who are not. Evidence has shown that women who are physically active are better able to tolerate the side effects during therapy and also do much better after treatment is finished. Exercise can most certainly improve physical conditioning, but equally important, it can increase emotional well-being. Encouraging patients to exercise, therefore, is an important part of my routine practice. As physicians, we need to remember to treat the whole patient, not just the disease."
