“Those patients who decided to move beyond the diagnosis of breast cancer, who decided to fight, and beat [it] on their own term—survive better than those who don’t,” Dr. Jose Rhoel de Leon, a Breast & Cancer Surgeon Oncologist, attested.
Anytime Fitness Trainer Louis Ramos, RN, RPT demonstrated some post-surgery stretchings and tips on movement exercises.
Lastly, Movement Coach Michelle Odderra imparted her experience as a survivor, as well as some insights on the importance of movement.

“Moving on is not about even losing weight, its about picking up yourself—to inspire others. It’s about giving hope,” said Odderra. She also noted how movement encourages independence to survivors in a way that was giving them to continue moving forward, again.

“Our pink therapy is for fellowship, is to encourage women who are kissed with cancer to raise up,” Odderra concluded.

Rotary Club of East Urban President Rosalinda Caragos commended the efforts made by Thrive CDO on her closing remarks.
