Study after study has shown that exercise reduces the risk of cancer recurrence for cancer survivors. More than 200 studies have shown that the most physically active survivors have a lower risk of cancer recurrence than the least active cancer survivors. The data favoring exercise is strongest for survivors of breast cancer, colon cancer, endometrial cancer and prostate cancer.

On Jan. 25, 2010, my life changed forever. It started as a regular colonoscopy and endoscopy due to terrible acid reflux, with me thinking the worst outcome would be a stomach ulcer.
After I woke, I heard the doctor telling me he found a quarter-sized tumor in my colon that he was 95 percent sure was cancerous. It seemed impossible. I was 27 years old and two short months from marrying the love of my life. I was looking forward to starting our life together with years of happiness ahead, instead of facing a life-changing obstacle.
