Celebrate every little victory

Living with a long-term condition as a result of your breast cancer diagnosis is difficult. We know that the way your condition affects you is unpredictable, where from one day to the next you don’t know how you will feel or what you can and can’t do.

Our information and support can help you get back into exercise after breast cancer and manage your long-term conditions. 

Because it doesn’t matter whether it’s something small and new, or just that little bit more of something you already do. It all makes a difference.

15 leading health and social care charities are launching a national campaign and movement to inspire and support people with long-term health conditions to be active.

When I went to my oncologist after being diagnosed with breast cancer, she said to me randomly, "Have you heard of Dragonboat Racing?". It's an amazing floating support group. The boat is my happy place.
