In 2020 Professor Anna Campbell set up CanRehab Trust to provide support for people living with and beyond cancer in UK to become or stay active. The aim of this charity is to help people manage the side effects of cancer or treatment and improve their quality of life.
The Charity is developing a register of approved personal trainers and health professionals qualified to provide tailored exercise programmes for people living with cancer. CanRehab Trust matches individuals who may require a physical activity programme to an instructor who can provide a number of exercise sessions that are tailored to the person’s needs based on their diagnosis and general health, stage of treatment and previous exercise experience.
Supporting people who have had a cancer diagnosis
The Charity has started out by supporting the Safefit trial. SafeFit was a research trial designed to support anyone in the UK with suspicion of, or confirmed diagnosis of cancer, aged 18 or over to be active.
