Should I exercise after breast cancer treatment?

Eileen Rainsberry

Exercise can bring incredible benefits post breast cancer treatment. In the aftermath of surgery it can help you get your strength and mobility back so you can get back to doing all the things you did before your treatment. And in the longer term, a combination of fitness and strength training will not only help you feel better, but can also help reduce the risk of the cancer coming back and lower your risk of heart attack, stroke and diabetes.

We Owe It To Our Sisters

Eileen Rainsberry

In the Spring of 2004, my mother began complaining of a pain in her hip. I suggested she see a physio. Ten years earlier she had had breast cancer. It didn’t occur to me for a moment that the cancer had come back. By the time we found out that it was secondary (or metastatic) breast cancer, the disease had spread throughout her body. She died in the Spring of 2005.

I don’t talk about it much, and never publicly. But a woman called Jo Taylor made me think twice.

We get asked all the time why we chose bamboo as the basis for the fabric we use in our post surgery range of underwear. Our answer is always the same "how long have you got?"
