About the project

Title: CANFit
Yorkshire Cancer Research
Time frame: September 2022 to August 2026
Contact for more details: Dr Cindy Forbes

More people in Yorkshire are diagnosed with lung, breast, and bowel cancer than in many other parts of the UK, with some specific cancer types at higher risk of returning after treatment.

We aim to test the feasibility of running a large trial to see if regular exercise after cancer treatments can help increase survival outcomes. The work will compare a personalised home-based exercise programme with support from exercise professionals with NHS standard care.
