Breast cancer survivor Dee Whiting said the benefits she got from an exercise program targeted at survivors extended far beyond the physical benefits.
Participating in the YWCA NSW Encore exercise program for breast cancer survivors gave her back her mobility and confidence.
“I wanted to get back to normality,” she said.
"It was great to meet other people with similar experiences somewhere other than the treatment rooms.”
Encore involves gentle movements in the water to assist survivors with fatigue, pain, mobility, mood, sleep and bone mineral density.
“I found it fantastic because I could gradually build my strength back,” she said.
Encore will run weekly at the Oasis from October 12 at 10am.
