The Quebec Cancer Foundation is proud to announce the launch of the POUR MOI pilot project, a new adapted exercise program for people with cancer living in the Eastern Townships. The project was made possible through a partnership among the Quebec Cancer Foundation, the school of rehabilitation at Université de Sherbrooke, CURE (the university’s affiliated rehabilitation clinic) and the CIUSSS-CHUS Sherbrooke.  The initiative combines kinesiology and physiotherapy to improve the quality of life of people undergoing cancer treatments and helps them maintain healthy habits.

ME, MY HEALTH AND I!

“As the head of the hematology/oncology department at the CIUSSS-CHUS Sherbrooke, I see the side effects of cancer treatments: stress, fatigue, nausea, poor quality sleep, etc. This is why I am proud to be part of the POUR MOI program. It will help my patients and others going through treatment better cope with the disease, while taking advantage of all the benefits of exercise,” explains Dr. Michel Pavic.
 
Made available as a medical prescription, the program lasts 10 weeks and involves 3 weekly exercise sessions, two of which are supervised by a kinesiology and physiotherapy professional.
