about core compassion project
Breast Cancer survivors are faced with many challenges. Radiation and chemotherapy can be extremely rough on the body. According to the American Cancer Institute, fatigue is one of the most common and distressing side effects of cancer and its treatment. Cancer can cause one to experience feelings of sadness and fear, sometimes leaving one unable to perform a regular daily routine. Exercise is important for everyone, even cancer survivors, so it is crucial to slowly build a fitness regime after cancer for continued good health.
Core Compassion Project provides Pilates scholarships to breast cancer survivors. Every $500 we collect provides one survivor 10 private sessions with a qualified and approved Pilates Instructor who will create a program specific to the recipient’s needs with a goal of encouraging them to gain strength physically and mentally.
