Oncology Therapy


Thanks to new research, treatments, and early detection more people than ever are living with or surviving cancer. Research shows that an active lifestyle improves recovery and promotes a better quality of life during and after cancer treatment. However, these can sometimes have lasting effects on daily performance, including physical, cognitive, sexual, emotional and social functioning.
