Cancer Wellness Program

Individuals diagnosed with all types and stages of cancer may enroll in the Cancer Wellness Program at NMMC Wellness Center in Tupelo. Anyone who is recently diagnosed with cancer and receiving treatment is eligible to attend with a physician’s referral.

The Cancer Wellness Program combines specifically prescribed exercise with education and support to guide a person through recovery.

Research indicates that patients who are in good physical condition may tolerate treatment better than those who are not. A regular exercise program may reduce fatigue, as well as nausea, an occasional side effect of cancer treatment. Exercise can also bolster the immune system, an important part of fighting cancer.

Along with other education, a registered dietitian teaches participants how to eat more nutritionally. To register or for more information, call 377-4147.

Fitness specialists will then set several reasonable goals for the participant to accomplish over the next three to six months and write a personalized exercise prescription to accomplish these goals.

Each participant will receive an orientation session to recommend a group exercise class and demonstrate how to use the fitness equipment. In addition, participants have the option of scheduling a one-on-one consultation with our registered dietitian for $10 to assess eating habits and make recommendations for improvement. Results from all assessments can be sent to your health care provider’s office for your records upon request.
