The American Cancer Society says good nutrition and physical activity after a diagnosis can lower the chances of the cancer coming back, and can even improve the chances of disease-free survival. Peninsula Regional has its own Cancer Exercise Program -- physicians can refer patients to the program, led by a of an exercise physiologist certified in cancer exercise rehabilitation.
