Our vision for Yorkshire content
It is estimated that 80% of people with cancer are not active enough. Evidence suggests that most do not start to be active without support, likely due to a combination of the impact of cancer-related fatigue, concerns about safety, and the traditional message of rest.
Most people with a cancer diagnosis do not receive support with physical activity, nutrition and wellbeing.
We want to change this.
Quote from Dr Kathryn Scott
Backed by research
Research already shows that regular activity before, during and after cancer treatment can help patients in many ways. Yorkshire Cancer Research has partnered with the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University to understand more about the benefits of prehabilitation and rehabilitation for people affected by cancer.
