6 Week Pink Ribbon Programme
Tuesday 12th June 2018 - Tuesday 17th July 2018

We have only 8 places so this will have to be first come, first served.

The Pink Ribbon Program is a post operative, pilates based, recovery program, developed by a survivor for survivors to help regain mobility, and improve strength and posture. It uses the principles of pilates exercises and focuses on shoulder mobility and strength to reduce pain and improve function. It can really help regain confidence and improve well-being. Exercise post cancer has been shown to greatly improve quality of life and this program is often the first step towards returning to normal exercise.

The Program is usually taught over 6 weeks, either one-to-one or in small groups but can be adapted as necessary. It is equally suitable for recent survivors and those whose surgery was some time ago but who have failed to recover full mobility.

All Pink Ribbon Program instructors are Certified Rehabilitative Breast Cancer Exercise Specialists.

November Meeting

This month's meeting we thought it would be nice to build on the talk from Nisha last month and provide the opportunity to get creative.

We have a ceramic artist coming in giving you the opportunity to get the chance to try ceramic painting.
Many of you talked about what gave you strength and what you are grateful for, even at such a challenging time. 

We thought it may be therapeutic and fun to get the opportunity to give thanks to these things, whether for you to appreciate, or as an opportunity to give thanks to others.

Breast Friends Northampton will cover the costs but will have a donation box if anyone would like to contribute (instead of the raffle - which will be free).
