The Medical Fitness Network strives to improve the quality of life for those with chronic medical conditions by connecting them to the most qualified fitness and healthcare professionals, bringing a holistic approach to the care of chronic illnesses.

 

“It is important that patients and survivors of this disease and their families are given all the tools and support they need to fight breast cancer,” said BCWM editor and 23 year cancer thriver, Beverly Vote. “A partnership with the Medical Fitness Network will allow Breast Cancer Wellness Magazine to connect our breast cancer patients, survivors, advocates, and family members with useful resources to assist them on their breast cancer journey.”

 

An overall wellness plan of healthy living is critical when it comes to health and fighting breast cancer. A growing list of studies shows a strong connection between fighting cancer and important choices in physical activity and exercise, diet and nutrition, and lifestyle, and that’s where the BCW partnership with Medical Fitness Network comes in. The use of this community allows breast cancer patients and survivors to connect with healthcare, wellness, and fitness providers that best meet their needs, bringing the holistic approach to breast cancer care to the forefront. It is important to build a team of experts and healthcare professionals when faced with a breast cancer diagnosis, and the patient and community services the Medical Fitness Network provides allows breast cancer patients to build out the best team for their care and individual disease.

 

“Our team at the Medical Fitness Network strives to connect the community to qualified health and fitness professionals to maximize wellness and quality of life,” said MFN founder Lisa Dougherty. “We’re dedicated to improving the quality of life for those with chronic illness, and are thrilled to be able to do so for those affected by breast cancer through a partnership with Breast Cancer Wellness Magazine.”
