You’ve seen me mention the amazing Casey Eischen and her post-mastectomy exercise program, I’m sure. I’ve done it more than a couple of times. Foobie Fitness, which started with Casey’s YouTube channel and a community page on Facebook, recently became an official non-profit! Today Casey and her team launched FoobieFitness.com aiming to help not only women navigating breast cancer-related journeys, but anyone interested in disease prevention, nutrition, yoga, and the overall cancer-free lifestyle. Who isn’t interested in saying NOPE to cancer?!? Make sure to visit this awesome resource!
My feedback featured as a Success Story on FoobieFitness.com:
“The Coach Casey post-mastectomy exercise program is was what really helped me make a speedy and successful recovery after my prophylactic mastectomy and tissue expander reconstruction over a year ago. I knew that my range of motion and mobility were going to be severely impacted by the traumatic procedure, so I began searching for the right program that I could begin right away and would help me in my recovery. I found just that in Casey’s videos.
I started doing wrist bends while still in my hospital bed and I slowly progressed through additional exercises in the following days. Each time I played that YouTube video I was doing better than the day before and I attribute that to this program! I talk about and recommend it whenever the opportunity presents itself. I still do it as of the day I write this, having had additional reconstructive surgery just four weeks ago! Casey has always been positive, encouraging, and willing to offer additional advice and tips. She even created a clean and simple nutrition plan to supplement the exercise regimen. Thank you Coach Casey for helping me and countless other women get through this!” – Nope2BC.com
On a side note: I had my second fill today bringing the expander to 400ccs. I have also moved my exchange surgery out a few weeks to September 11. The story continues.
