This booklet is for children and adolescents with cancer, and their parents and carers, to learn about the benefits of physical activity during cancer treatment. Cancer treatment is a stressful time and can cause major disruptions to normal routines. The thought of exercising during cancer treatment may seem daunting and unachievable; however, it is possible to stay active. This booklet offers tips and ideas to help get into a more active daily routine, as well as information about when you might need to ask for help from a healthcare professional.
