Organization plans yoga program for breast cancer survivors
Aug 11, 2011
Being diagnosed with breast cancer can leave women struggling to fight, and the struggle often continues well into the recovery process. However, there are certain organizations that are looking to reach out to breast cancer survivors and empower them to finish their healing.
In breast cancer survivors and supporters news, Rhonda M. Smith, the founder of Breast Cancer Partner, is running a program that will help breast cancer survivors reemerge from the experience through the powers of yoga, according to the South Florida Times.
"We must address the growing need for advice, education, tools and resources for breast cancer survivors regarding their health and wellness, not only during but especially after treatment ends," Smith told the news provider.
This kind of program could be just what breast cancer survivors need in order to feel like themselves again.
According to a pilot study from the National Institutes of Health, yoga may be a way to treat the persistent fatigue that breast cancer survivors tend to suffer from. However, the researchers were quick to point out that a larger study must be conducted before an official claim can be made.
