CANMove Launched Today!

This morning I was at the launch of an exercise programme available to anyone being treated for cancer, or who has been treated for cancer, with proven benefits for health and well-being.  This new programme builds on the Active ABC model, but is open to anyone affected by any kind of cancer (though it was still mainly women, and mainly people who'd been affected by breast cancer at the launch it has to be said).

Anyway, you can read more about it here or if you live in Scotland can catch TV coverage today on STV at 2 pm or 6 pm, possibly on Daybreak, and tomorrow in the Scottish press (Glasgow Herald, Daily Record). 

I spoke to one of the coordinators who said that now that NHS GGC are actively committed to it, more people are taking part.  Given that research suggests exercise reduces the risk of recurrence by up to 50%, and has well-being benefits for at least five years, it all seems like a no-brainer to me.

I can be be seen in the TV coverage looking suitably gormless it has to be said (avoided most of the press photos!) but it was good to be there... and I got my five a day for free as part of the buffet lunch!


  • What a fantastic initiative, Catriona! Sorry I won't see the TV coverage. :-)
