Dry July Foundation funds exercise program at Choices Cancer Support Centre

Thanks to funds raised through Dry July 2019, The Wesley Hospital Choices Cancer Support Centre will be able to fund a Women's and Men's intra and post treatment exercise program.

For people undergoing chemotherapy and other cancer treatments, research demonstrates that a tailored and accessible gym program, supervised by oncology exercise physiologists, has multiple benefits, including:

• Better treatment outcomes

• Reduction of recurrence risk

• Reduction of risks of other chronic diseases

• Reduction of fatigue


Combining an exercise program with appropriate education sessions provides patients with additional support to manage lifestyle changes resulting from treatment, including:

• Managing early, late and long term side effects of treatment

• Managing nutrition

• Managing exercise

• Peer support
