Fighting Fit

We are working with Macmillan and NHS professionals to help support people living with or recovering from Cancer in Lincoln.

 

We will help you to maintain or increase physical activity levels at a pace that suits you and support you in the fight against Cancer and long-term health conditions.

 

Being physically active has multiple benefits for people living with or recovering from Cancer:

 

  • Prehabilitation – preparing you for your Cancer treatment after diagnosis, building physical and mental strength and providing a safe space for peer support

  • Reduce risk of cancer recurrence – being active during and after cancer treatment can reduce the risk of recurrence in some cancers. It can also reduce the risk of developing other long-term conditions.

  • Reduce side effects – being active during and after cancer treatment can reduce some side effects of cancer and cancer treatment. Side effects activity helps with include fatigue, depression, weight gain, blood clots, hot flushes, night sweats and nerve damage.

  • Prevent decline in physical ability – being active during cancer treatment can prevent a decline in physical ability without increasing fatigue levels.

  • Recover physical ability – being active after cancer treatment helps patients recover physical ability.

  • Maintain independence – in cases of advanced cancer physical activity can help patients maintain independence and well-being.

 

Launching in Spring 2021, we will help you build your strength, motivation and physical ambitions, and be here to put the kettle on and talk things through when you need it. Activities will be based at LNER Stadium with peer support and resources.
