Project aims to empower survivors of cancer

Have your say

A new initiative, which encourages people affected by cancer to become more active, launches in Sheffield today.

The ‘Active Everyday’ project aims to help tackle long-lasting effects of the disease - including fatigue, weight change and depression - empowering cancer survivors to rebuild their confidence as well as their activity levels.

Project Lead Lindsey Reece, of Sheffield Hallam University, said: “So many people are unsure where to start again with exercise, after something like cancer has knocked them off their feet.”
