Exercise

Regular exercise can greatly improve physical and mental health and it's a very important piece of the cancer journey. At The Gathering Place, we understand the importance of exercise during or after treatment and will work each participant to help them meet their unique needs. Those who were not active before their cancer diagnosis can safely and successfully join one of our exercise programs.
