Macquarie University Cancer Institute and MQ Sports have joined forces to provide a new timetabled gentle aqua aerobic class for cancer survivors.

The class has been added to the programs available at the Macquarie University Sports and Aquatic Centre and is designed specifically for women who have ever been diagnosed with any form of cancer.  The Live Well program helps people in the survivorship phase of cancer recovery following surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments.  

There is significant evidence to support women commencing or returning to a regular exercise program following treatment. Exercise not only assists women to build up their general fitness but increases mobility, strength and generally improves mood and emotional state.
