What is the Fondation Cancer?
Founded in Luxembourg in 1994, the Fondation Cancer is a non-governmental organization with three missions: informing the general public and cancer patients about cancer topics (INFO), supporting cancer patients and their families in order to improve their quality of life (SUPPORT) and funding cancer research (RESEARCH). Every year the Fondation Cancer organises the Relay for life a national cancer patient solidarity event. All this is mainly funded through donations and bequests.
Offer in the way of physical activity
Since 2001 the Fondation Cancer has offered weekly physical activity training sessions which are adapted to the fitness of the participants. The groups and classes aim to improve physical shape and well-being by using adapted exercises.
Types of exercises offered
The Fondation Cancer proposes four different types of activity: gymnastics and yoga. The intensity of the exercises and the level of difficulty are adapted to each person’s capacity. All of the activities are supervised by people with an appropriate diploma.
