Review for Thrivewell Cancer Foundation, San Antonio, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a breast cancer survivor. A breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. It was a challenging & hard-fought battle to endure the pain and suffering of multiple surgeries; the devasting effects and side-effects of chemotherapy; and to overcome my fear. My participation in the TriveWell Cancer Foundation (The DIVA Program) was strongly recommended to me by my oncologist. The DIVA Program is a FREE nutrition & exercise program for women with breast cancer. Breast cancer patients who follow diet & exercise guidlines can reduce their risk of recurrence by 30-40 percent! The DIVA Program (Deriving Inspiration & Vitality through Activity) is a fitness program offering aerobics, yoga, Thai Chi & zumba classes. It provides nutritional counseling. Artful Healing classes are available twice monthly. THE DIVA PROGRAM IS OFFERED FREE OF CHARGE. The DIVA Program gave me an opportunity to "Get My Life Back". ThriveWell Cancer Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for cancer by funding cancer research, providing patient support, and offering programs, such as The DIVA Program, to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families. The DIVA "sisterhood" has given me an opportunity to gain control over my life, good health, & my survival rate. The DIVA Program positively impacts the San Antonio Community's breast cancer patients & survivors.
