Make available a physical activity program to women undergoing chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer.

Description

Thanks to the availability of an individual physical activity program or of group sessions, women undergoing breast cancer treatment can improve their quality of life during treatment, reduce the intensity of the treatment’s side effects and gradually resume their daily activities after treatment. In addition to being adapted to the needs of women with breast cancer, this program is offered in a safe environment, under the guidance and supervision of a licensed kinesiologist.
