Blumenthal Cancer Center has collaborated with Carolinas HealthCare System Sports Medicine and the Dowd YMCA to develop a cancer wellness program. Carolinas Cancer Wellness Program, which is funded by "24 Hours of Booty", is located on the 6th floor of the Dowd YMCA.
The cancer wellness program is an 8-week program designed to assist in managing the physical side effects of cancer treatment for survivors during treatment or during recovery phases. Participants will receive an individualized exercise program consisting of cardiovascular, strength training and flexibility exercises, offering a comprehensive approach to recovery and increased physical stamina.
Each participant will work with a registered nurse and a trained exercise physiologist during their individualized program. There is no cost for patients to take part in the program thanks to the generous support of 24 Hours of Booty.
