STRENGTH FOR LIFE INC
November 5, 2013

I am a four year cancer survivor and this is the second time I took Strength for Life. I previously took this program in early 2012 when I was recovering from implant reconstruction and had different issues than now. This program has helped me a great deal after surgery last winter for DIEP flap surgery. Jacqui gave myself and everyone individualized attention and reminds us of "listening to our bodies". There are some exercises that I was unable to do in the beginning of the sessions and now I am able to complete them with little discomfort. I will continue to do the exercises that I am able to do at home slowly and looking forward to the photos to remind me" the correct placement of the bands". I highly recommend Strength for Life and was pleased that the ladies that I recommended the program to found Strength for Life beneficial. Great program a must for cancer survivors.

I am so glad that I attended the Wellness Retreat with Jacqui, Debbie and the volunteers. The ladies were friendly, non-judgemental, helpful and fun to be with. The weekend was well planned out with great classes which included zumba, strength training, guest speakers on naturopathic medicine, white lotus massage, yoga, reiki. I especially enjoyed the zumba-gentle moves ,learning about Feng Shu and The Green Belt Trail. I listened to my body and did the exercises I was able to do. I can't wait for the reunion. Jacqui and Debbie you are phenonemal.

Participating in the Strength for Life program has greatly helped me with stretching and strengthing various muscles and parts of my body to improve my mobility. I do feel stronger. Jacquii and Debbie are excellent instructors and I enjoyed being part of the group. I met nice, caring people and we laughed and supported each other through our exercises. I will continue the exercises at home but won't forget the support that Jacquii provided. I will miss the program but would like to partake in the retreats.
