Strong Cancer Recovery is committed to helping people living with a cancer diagnosis become more active during treatment and beyond. We provide free, individualized exercise programs for physician-referred cancer patients in a clinical setting.

Exercise is safe and beneficial for all people living with a cancer diagnosis: just diagnosed, in treatment, in remission, and during relapse. We are currently operating out of the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center in Scottsdale AZ.

For those who are interested in ar**la repigmentation, I'd like to recommend my colleague and friend Elli Edgar, Painted Ladies. Elli is also living with a diagnosis of breast cancer; she knows how it is to belong to the club.
