Description: If you’re ready to regain your muscle tone and mobility following breast cancer surgery, all it takes is Strength & Courage. Developed by breast cancer survivors and medical experts, the Strength & Courage: Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors DVD strives to enhance your ability to lead an active life following breast cancer surgery. Starting with exercises that you can initiate one day after surgery, the program guides you all the way through a more rigorous stretching and weight training regimen. An integral part of any breast cancer rehabilitation program, Strength and Courage also includes guidelines for aerobic exercise, which has been proven to reduce breast cancer recurrence. Developed by Dr. Sharon Cowden, a pediatrician, avid golfer and breast cancer survivor, and Janette Poppenberg, a ACSM/ACS certified Cancer Exercise Trainer®. The exercise program is designed to help breast cancer survivors regain upper body strength, flexibility and improve posture after breast cancer. By following the guidelines and practicing the exercises on a regular basis, breast cancer survivors not only improve their strength and range of motion, they also boost their confidence and regain control of their personal health and wellbeing. The exercises in Strength & Courage: Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors are demonstrated by breast cancer survivors and led by Kathy Johnson, Licensed Physical Therapist, and Janette Poppenberg, an ACSM/ACS certified Cancer Exercise Trainer. Dr. Adam Brufsky, a medical oncologist and co-director of the UPMC Breast Cancer Program, explains how medical research supports the importance of exercise for breast cancer survivors.
