Aerobic Training Is Safe but Not Feasible for Many Women With MBC

A new study has been released by Metastatic Breast Cancer Center of Excellence that concludes aerobic training is safe but not feasible for many women with MBC. 
“Many women with stage IV breast cancer will not be able to participate in aerobic exercise. It not only could cause increase in pain, but also potentially contribute to pathological fractures. We don’t want to frustrate patients by trying to do something potentially unsafe that may or may not benefit them long term. Gentle yoga is something that can be helpful to patients by teaching them how to relax, meditate, and unwind.”  Lillie D Shockney RN, BS, MAS
