Breast Cancer and Exercise

My recent visit to Tennis for life

Hope and resilience. My recent visit to Tennis for life it was life changing. This wonderful organization created by breast cancer survivors offers their members an opportunity to experience a  pure jolt of excitement, resilience, hope and all that practicing your favorite sport, Tennis! They invited me to discuss my recent book: Super Body, Super Brain

Breast cancer is one of the most feared common cancer among American women. The chance of developing breast cancer at some time in a woman’s life is beyond the staggering number of 10%.

The American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates for breast cancer in the United States are for 2011:

    • About 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
    • About 57,650 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
    • About 39,520 women will die from breast cancer to see more data click here CANCER.ORG

Janet who is a breast cancer survivor and the program coordinator at Tennis for life expressed her excitement of her new life: “I am preparing for my next Triathlon and when I come to Tennis for Life I  have never felt better in my life”

According to one of the members, Andrea ” There was a point in my life where I needed to go to a support group for breast cancer but not to cry but to move and feel happy about myself and why not practice my favorite sport, tennis?”

According to the National Cancer Institute California researchers have found that strenuous long-term physical activity decreases a woman’s risk of invasive and in situ breast cancer, according to study results published in the February 26, 2007, Archives of Internal Medicine (see the journal abstract).
