Breast Cancer Survivor Program & Others

The MUSC Wellness Center, supported by the Health & Wellness Institute, works with providers to develop programs tailored to the specific needs of chronic disease and special patient populations, focusing on physical fitness while providing a sense of community support for the patient. Its Survivors' Fit Club is a 10-week exercise, nutrition and behavioral-change program designed for breast cancer survivors. With guidance from a MUSC registered dietitian, exercise physiologist, post-rehab exercise specialist, health coach, cognitive behavioral therapist and certified personal trainers, the program focuses on improved cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, body composition, fatigue, anxiety, depression, self-esteem and quality of life factors specific to cancer survivors. The result is a powerful healing process that is not only physical but also mental, giving participants the emotional support of each other as they enter into the complex phase of survivorship.
