After having a baby, most women want to bounce back into shape right

Last summer, in August, I was invited to attend the first annual Valor Games Midwest. The Games is open to all military, both disabled and otherwise, and are held in the downtown Chicago area in locations such as U.S. Cellular Field and Soldier Field.

A common tool of preventive medicine has been realized to be an important
complimentary therapy for cancer. Exercise has been studied extensively for its
power to combat the risk of developing many forms of cancer, and it is now gaining even more attention for the benefits conferred on cancer patients and survivors. As might be expected, from what is known about exercise and prevention, physical activity reduces the risk of cancer recurrence after successful treatment. It also works to improve the survival rate of those undergoing treatment.
