Cancer Wellness Program*

Cancer Wellness – Exercise & Cancer – New Brunswick, NJ – Old Bridge, NJ – Middlesex County

The Cancer Wellness Program at RWJ Fitness & Wellness Center provides supervised exercise, education and support throughout your personal journey.

Working with an exercise professional who may communicate with members of your current treatment team, you will participate in an exercise program appropriate for your diagnoses, treatments, and current status in your cancer journey.

The purpose and guiding principle of the Cancer Wellness Program is that you should remain as functional and independent as possible, within the restraints of your diagnoses and treatments, through your personal cancer journey. Through the use of exercise integrated into your current care, you main maintain and/or improve your physical well-being, emotional well-being, and overall quality of life throughout your cancer journey.

As changes occur in your health status, team members will adapt the program to meet your individual needs.
