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.
Watch the heat!
The calendar may say fall is here, but the days are still warm and heat related problems can develop when we're exercising. Heat illness can go from mild to life-threatening very quickly, so it's important to always be aware of the signs of heat illness in yourself or your workout partners: nausea, muscle cramps, dizziness, heavy sweating, and a fast, weak pulse.
If you recognize any of these symptoms in yourself or a buddy, take action quickly! Stop your activities and rest, move to shade or a cool room, drink cool water or soak a bandana in cool water and place it on your head or around your neck.
