New data suggests that breast cancer patients with a lower BMI, who take more exercise, drink alcohol responsibly and are not lonely, have a better quality of life.
Sally Greenbrook, Senior Policy Officer at Breakthrough Breast Cancer, says:
“Every breast cancer patient copes in their own way and quality-of-life factors may be different for everybody. However, we do know that many women find it helpful to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle during and after breast cancer treatment and also value having a support network around them during this time.”
