About

Exercise Oncology Australia is a page dedicated to kicking back at cancer using evidence-based research. Exercise has been commonly prescribed for lifestyle-related chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, but more recently, emerging studies have shown that exercise can improve many outcomes for cancer patients. In a nutshell, some of these benefits across different types of cancer include increased survival rate, decreased chance of the cancer returning, less fatigue, better sleep, improved cardiovascular health, less anxiety & depression and increased strength  just to name a few.

Throughout this blog, I will discuss some findings from emerging exercise oncology studies. I’ll also speak about my experiences co-ordinating exercise studies for women with ovarian cancer, traveling around Australia and overseas to present my work with other researchers. Also I’m always happy to discuss other bloggers stories and answer any questions. I have seen some amazing people do amazing things during a time in life that brings so many challenges
