PEER is a collaborative initiative between the University of Calgary and Kids Cancer Care, developed by an interdisciplinary team of pediatric cancer specialists to help parents and health care professionals to use exercise to help ease the long-term impact of cancer and its treatments on kids. Specialized exercise programs are designed for each session to rebuild fundamental skills such as aerobic capacity, muscle strength, balance and flexibility, while restoring immune system, energy levels and confidence.
PEER is free and open to children with cancer (both on- and off-treatment), survivors and siblings! Please attend cold- and flu-free.
