Breast Cancer Now responds to new evidence that exercise can help people with secondary breast cancer

Dr Simon Vincent, director of research, support and influencing at Breast Cancer Now, said:

“With an estimated 61,000 people living with secondary breast cancer in the UK, who’ll be on treatment for the rest of their lives, research like this is crucial to ensuring that they have the best quality of life possible so they can enjoy the precious time they have left with their family and friends.

“We still need to better understand the mechanisms behind the link between physical activity and reduced pain and fatigue for people with secondary breast cancer, but these findings add to the growing evidence that staying active throughout treatment can boost energy levels and improve quality of life.

“Anyone seeking information or support about exercise should speak to their treatment team, or GP, or can call Breast Cancer Now’s free helpline on 0808 800 6000 and speak to one of our expert nurses.”
