Queensland X-Ray has extended its support for the Toowoomba based ‘Fight Back with Fitness’ initiative which helps women affected by cancer improve their health through an exercise intervention program.
We have supported Fight Back with Fitness since its inception in 2017. Alongside cancer charity organisation Blush Cancer Care; Queensland X-Ray and allied health specialist FitLab pool resources to offer a 12-week program which takes a holistic approach to women’s health, mid and post cancer.
Queensland X-Ray Chief Sonographer for the Toowoomba region, Michael Hede, who was instrumental in setting up the partnership with FitLab, said;
“It’s wonderful that Queensland X-Ray are contributing to these ladies at this stage of their journey. Quite often our involvement is only at the diagnosis stage, or in the context of follow up review and this is understandably a time of worry for these patients. This represents an opportunity for Queensland X-Ray to give back in a manner that provides something positive for the ladies and something they actually look forward to. The fact that there are also real health benefits to them for doing these programs is an added bonus.”
