Survive Strong

Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital's Rehabilitative Services have partnered with Lake Forest Health & Fitness Center to offer a cancer-related fatigue program, Survive Strong.

This program is designed for individuals diagnosed with any stage of cancer who are experiencing fatigue or weakness, or are unsure how to initiate exercise. It is appropriate for anyone currently undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy, or who has completed cancer treatment within the past year.

A physician's referral is required and scholarships are available for program participants.
