Gráinne is the co-founder of SPARK cancer rehabilitation which is a non-profit program offering anyone who has been diagnosed with Cancer the opportunity to access specialist 1:1 physiotherapy to address issues they may have acquired due to surgery or treatment. It does not matter how long-ago diagnosis/treatment was. It can be accessed at any stage of the cancer journey including pre-operatively, post-operatively, during or after treatment.
The service is currently developing bespoke cancer rehabilitation exercise classes for any clients who complete the 1:1 SPARK program to progress onto and maintain their exercise levels.
The evidence base for the benefits of physical activity and exercise in oncology is strong and continues to grow. Exercise should form a part of everyone’s cancer journey.
