Strength & Courage: An Exercise Program for Breast Cancer Survivors
Dr. Sharon Cowden, a pediatrician and breast cancer survivor, and Janette Poppenberg, ACSM/ACS Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer®, collaborated to create an exercise DVD for breast cancer patients. The ladies of Strength & Courage are behind the compilation of exercises helpful to women who are surviving breast cancer and want to get back to the life they lived before their diagnosis.
Here are a few ways Strength & Courage can benefit you:
- Exercise can decrease side effects often associated with breast cancer treatment such as fatigue, weight gain, and anxiety.
- Stretching exercises can help you regain upper body flexibility so you can get back to doing the things you love.
- Weight training exercises can help you regain upper body strength countering the effects of bone loss, and giving you back a feeling of well-being and control.

The Strength & Courage exercise program is available in both English and Spanish upon completion of the payment process.
