Making Progress Against Cancer
Partners on the Journey

Over the last few years, I’ve had the great privilege of visiting a variety of NCI-designated Cancer Centers and talking with various stakeholder groups across the country. While meeting with oncologists and researchers takes up most of my time, the highlight is always my interactions with patients. I am especially moved by the willingness of so many to take part in clinical trials – to become part­ners on our research journey – all in the hope that others won’t have to experi­ence what they are going through. Their courage is a humbling reminder of the experiences of all cancer survivors and the reason why we do what we do every day at the National Cancer Institute.

Just Move
A Step-by-Step Approach to Physical Fitness for Cancer Survivors

As a medical doctor specializ­ing in cancer rehabilitation, I often find myself echoing a common refrain to those around me: just move. Inactivity has both a direct and an indirect effect on our health and func­tion. Historically, we, as a society and as medical professionals, have often underestimated the effects of inactivity. Over the past several years, a shift in thinking has begun.

Travel Gently

by Lisa K. Tager, JD, MSW, LICSW

I first heard the words “travel gently” at a meditation class in New York that I attended with my daughter. The meditation class was held in a dark, cool dome of a room. A facilitator led us in counting and encouraged us to gently push away other thoughts from our minds. Since cancer, I had been mak­ing myself do this regularly, so I was actually not bad at this exercise. BC (or before cancer), I was never able to do anything like that! Before cancer, I was barely able to relax long enough to sit still – let alone (attempt to) meditate.
