The Flamingos for Hope will visit patients at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center on Tuesday, November 26th at 10 a.m.
Flamingos for Hope is a patient-led program developed by a cancer survivor who chose to “be a live-er” and to celebrate something every day.
Flamingos represent Friends Laughing, Achieving Miracles, Inspiring and Nurturing Gifts, Offering Smiles. The mission of Flamingos for Hope is to enrich the quality of life of those touched by cancer through inspiration, fun and laughter.
All Physical Wellness Classes will be on holiday break the weeks of November 25th, December 23rd and December 30th.
We do this to be consistent with current research that shows there are less overuse injuries that occur when a week is taken off. When people think about taking time off from exercise, they become concerned with regression in progress and weakening of muscles. However, taking time away from exercise allows you to make progress, whether they are related to weight loss, muscle strengthening or general fitness and toning. Muscles require time to recover and rebuild.
