Anti-Cancer Club™ Announces Partnership with Medical Fitness Network to Provide New Fitness and Allied Healthcare Provider Resource

The Anti-Cancer Club (ACC) has partnered with the Medical Fitness Network (MFN) – a free national online resource directory to locate fitness, wellness and allied healthcare professionals who provide services for those with medical conditions, chronic disease or who need pre & postpartum care.

The Anti-Cancer Club is a free educational resource for spouses, children, friends and any other persons touched by cancer. It was designed to help people take charge of a cancer diagnosis and craft a personalized plan for their health. ACC offers a proactive, take charge approach to dealing with a cancer diagnosis by providing education.

Education and awareness are key elements in the fight against cancer and other debilitating disease and doctors often prescribe diet and exercise as an extension of their treatment. At this point, the patient is often left to their own devices to determine how best to fill these doctor’s orders. The patient can search online for diet plans and providers, but it can be a daunting task to find the right solution.

“A balanced wellness plan is critical for surviving cancer. Studies show a strong connection between fighting cancer and important choices in physical activity and exercise, diet and nutrition, and lifestyle.” says ACC Founder Patricia Wetzel.    “We are excited to partner with the MFN in order to provide a resource for survivors and their families to find health, wellness & fitness providers all in one place that best fit their needs.”

“The MFN strives to improve the quality of life for cancer survivors, family members and caregivers by providing a registry of professionals that offer a holistic approach to complement their medical care,” said MFN founder Lisa Dougherty. “My father is a four-time cancer survivor. We’re thrilled to partner and support the Anti-Cancer Club’s survivors and their families.”
