Core Compassion Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to offering Pilates scholarships to cancer patients to attend a specialized program to reduce the side effects of cancer treatments and recover their mobility, strength, and range of motion following breast cancer surgery.
The program is designed for those with cancer to help ease the transition from treatment to returning to post-treatment daily life. The biggest issue faced by most cancer survivors is fatigue, both during and after cancer treatment.
Pilates offers strength, self-esteem and quality of life to survivors. For more information about the event, visit http://www.corecompassionproject.org.
