Sunflower Wellness Resources

Manuals, Links & Resources

The links on this page will take you to the resources we have gathered to date. We will periodically update this page with pointers to other websites that support people with cancer, describe the benefits of exercise, and contain relevant research.

Click here to see the most recent Sunflower Wellness brochure.

Also included here is the Cancer and Exercise Manual for Trainers, originally written to guide personal trainers as they offer exercise instruction to people with cancer. Please note that this document is now generally out of date.

We also feature a link to the 2016 "Your Health Matters" publication from the UCSF Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science *and* Sunflower Wellness:
"Moving Through Cancer: A Guide to Exercise for Cancer Survivors."

Please feel free to let us know about resources that would be helpful for us to include on this page by using the Feedback form here on the website. Thanks!
