At the Hayworth Cancer Center, we know that a diagnosis of cancer impacts your body, mind and spirit. We offer a variety of oncology fitness and wellness programs to give you the tools you need to successfully navigate the journey through cancer. New research in cancer treatment dispels many of the myths and early fears about the safety, feasibility and efficacy of exercise as a quality of life intervention following a cancer diagnosis. Studies suggest that increased physical exercise results in less fatigue for the cancer patient.
Susan Rostand, certified RYT-500 Yoga Instructor, offers classes designed specifically for cancer patients. No previous experience with Yoga is necessary. The program is designed to guide participants to become more active and to improve their quality of life. These goals are achieved through the practice of Yoga postures, breath-work and meditation. Participants must complete an information form and physician permission form prior to enrollment. These are available at the Cancer Resource Center. All equipment and supplies will be provided. Clothing that allows the participants to move comfortably is recommended. Classes meet each Monday at 1:30 pm and 3 pm in the Cancer Resource Center Conference Room.
CancerFITT: Functional Independence Through Training
CancerFITT is a 12-week supervised, group exercise program designed specifically for cancer patients. The program provides progressive cardiovascular, strength and flexibility exercises and opportunities for guided relaxation techniques. It includes informative education sessions and specific group exercise classes led by an exercise physiologist experienced in working with oncology patients. A signed physician release is required. Program participants can utilize The Fitness Center at High Point Medical Center during operating hours. For more information about CancerFITT call 336-878-6221.
Women’s Wellness Sessions
These classes are open to any woman who has been diagnosed with cancer. The group meets on the third Monday of each month from 6 to 7 pm at the Patient and Family Lounge on the third floor of the Hayworth Cancer Center. Exercise physiologist Melissa Moore and oncology dietitian Erin Kline offer cooking and exercise demonstrations along with fitness and nutrition education. No reservations are required.
After Breast Cancer Exercise and Education Class
This class is for anyone and their family after a breast cancer diagnosis. Optimal pain-free function of the upper body is vital. This class is taught because 35-58% of breast cancer survivors have arm/shoulder issues such as frozen shoulder, cording, lymphedema, pain, decreased scar mobility and rotator cuff limitations.
During class, you will learn how to decrease the risk of infection, lymphedema, poor posture, tight scars, and poor shoulder function.
The class is free and is taught by a physical therapist who can answer any of your questions.

Cancer survivors may face physical, emotional, social, spiritual and financial challenges as a result of their cancer diagnosis and treatment. The Hayworth Cancer Center offers resources designed to help cancer survivors cope with these challenges. A variety of support groups welcome current patients and those who have completed their treatment and are in recovery.
We also sponsor an annual Cancer Survivors' Day Celebration featuring educational offerings and presentations by inspirational cancer survivors each summer.
Due to advances in the early detection and treatment of cancer, people are living many years after a diagnosis. This requires special attention to help maintain health and improve survival and quality of life after cancer. Regular physical activity has been shown to improve the quality of life after a cancer diagnosis. Our CancerFitt exercise program is tailored specifically to cancer patients and is a great way to take a first step toward a healthy survivorship.
Our knitting and crocheting groups offer a healing activity for anyone touched by cancer. Our groups are open to all and made up of active patients, family members, volunteers and survivors. Beginners or experienced knitters and crocheters are welcome. Supplies are provided or you may bring your own. All projects will be donated to the patients of the Hayworth Cancer Center.
