What will I do in the program?

All participants will receive a pedometer and have access to a secret Facebook group and websites with information and strategies to help cancer survivors become more physically active and improve their health.

Information and tips are posted through Facebook each week for 12 weeks. There are no classes to attend, and you can log on any time that works for you. Participants assigned to one Facebook group will be encouraged to participate in 16 Facebook group discussions and use an exercise website over the course of the 12-week study. All participants will also be asked to complete two online questionnaires and to record the number of steps taken over two 7-day periods, once at the beginning of the study and once at the end, after 12 weeks.

Most importantly, you will learn strategies that will help you promote a healthier lifestyle for today and the future.
