Physical activity may not be at the top of your priorities following a diagnosis of blood cancer. However it can be an important part of your recovery after and during cancer treatment.

Side effects of cancer treatment, such as fatigue, may mean that you do not feel as though you have the energy to take part in regular exercise. However just by spending less time sitting down and taking small amounts of exercise such as walking can be beneficial in helping your body to recover.
