Welcome to Tucson Cancer Conquerors
Tucson Cancer Conquerors is an all-volunteer, non-profit support group dedicated to empowering cancer survivors and the communities that support them to achieve optimal wellness. We offer a unique peer support environment along with creative wellness programs designed to educate, inspire, and encourage cancer survivors to be proactive about their health both during and after cancer diagnosis and treatment. Our group is run by cancer survivors and our supporters, so we understand first hand the physical and emotional challenges associated with a cancer diagnosis. With a focus on exercise, nutrition, education, and support, we are here to help you successfully navigate the journey that lies ahead. You are not alone. We have your back.
You don’t have to be a cancer survivor to be part of Tucson Cancer Conquerors. Our comprehensive approach to wellness is essential to cancer prevention and benefits everyone. Cancer survivorship is about getting healthy and staying healthy.

With the triple digit days it’s so important to be in tune to your bodies hydration status. If you live in a hot, dry climate, you learn to ignore your thirst but by the time you are thirsty, you are actually dehydrated!
It is important to always be aware of and pay attention to the signs of dehydration which are thirst, flushed skin, premature fatigue, increased body temperature, faster breathing and pulse rate, increased perception of effort, and decreased exercise capacity.
You can use creative ways to keep things cool while exercising, but hydration is your best defense against heat stroke. Remember to drink a glass of water every morning when you wake up and to carry a reusable water bottle with you on these hot summer days. The double walled insulated aluminum hydroflasks are ideal because not only are they BPA free, but they keep your water cold as well.
