Whether it's just walking to the letterbox, or cycling to your chemotherapy like Michelle Roberson did, maintaining a form of physical activity is important when you have cancer.
The right advice around how to do this will be available to Border residents through a Cancer Council NSW program running for the second time.
"I kept cycling throughout treatment as much as I could, and this program helped with some simple resistance exercises," she said.
"We were encouraged to record our steps, and given information about nutrition and portion sizes.
"The information from the dietitian and exercise physiologist was really great.
"It's no surprise cancer treatment really destroys your body ... but it's important to know it can rebuild."
The Department of Health and Human Services employee completed treatment for cervical cancer six months before taking part in the program with her husband Wayne, and said they had developed a camaraderie with fellow participants.
"It's good for partners to participate and get an understanding of these things too," Mrs Robertson said.
The free program is delivered in eight, weekly sessions.
Cancer Council NSW Western community programs co-ordinator Mel Nixon said feedback from the initial group was positive.
"Even while people are undergoing treatment, research shows us the benefits of maintaining some exercise improves overall well-being," she said.
"If we can keep people moving in whatever capacity they are still able to, it helps recovery later on.
"There's life after cancer, and it will be different to the one you had before, but if you can exercise and things like that, you'll make the most of that life."
Ms Nixon said the program would run in Albury from Thursday, May 9.
"We're offering the program to people who are nearing the end of their treatment, or have already finished," she said.
"There also people who will continue treatment for the rest of their life, and they are also welcome.
"Be brave and make the most of this opportunity."
Those interested in the program should contact 1300 360 541.
