Strength After Breast Cancer

About This Event

Enhance your healing and recovery through this 6-week exercise rehabilitation program.

Strength ABC was founded by Kathryn H. Schmitz, PhD, MPH and is based on the PAL Trial (Physical Activity and Lymphedema). This study showed the effectiveness of progressive weightlifting for breast cancer survivors who were living with or were at risk for lymphedema. Our program has been developed to meet the broader physical rehabilitation needs of breast cancer survivors.

What do the sessions include?

  • An initial screening by a Physical Therapist
  • Personalized exercise instruction from Sunflower Exercise Counselors geared towards increasing motivation and promoting behavior and healthy lifestyle change
  • Education on weight training routines that help prevent lymphedema and increase range of motion
  • Free resistance band and 2-3 lb. dumbbells
  • Guidance on creating a long-term fitness practice that fits your lifestyle

Participation is dependent on your pre-screening assessment with a Physical Therapist.
