“Rehabilitation for breast cancer includes three parts: preoperative, peri-operative and postoperative parts.
The main kinds of exercise include strength, flexibility and aerobic training. An important element of comprehensive rehabilitation is focusing on the increase
in the range of movement in the shoulder on the affected side.” -National Library of Medicine

I have worked with Oncologists, Nurse Navigators and Surgeons, facilitating cancer Pre-habilitation and Post-treatment programs since 2009. The Breast Cancer Restorative Functional Movement Exercise Program On-Demand video project became a reality in 2020 during the global CV-19 pandemic because venerable breast cancer patients around the globe suddenly found themselves isolated (some alone) with minimal rehabilitation post-treatment support.
The comprehensive evidenced based Breast Cancer Pre-habilitation and Post-Treatment Restorative Functional Movement On-demand Program provides options for Breast Cancer Healthcare Providers, Caregivers and breast cancer patients through survivorship.
I look forward to providing a variety of on-demand videos from Pre-habilitation through Survivorship

Starr’s program has been a wonderful start to a journey, Starr is wonderful at putting people at ease and explaining the exercises. I think we were all a little scared when we started, but now I am ready to forge ahead to new exercise activities based on my success with Starr.
OMG - I’m a double mastectomy patient who was afraid to stand erect 3 months after my surgery for fear of tearing my skin over the chest area. I had a frozen shoulder in both shoulders and was not motivated to do the required exercises as frequently as I should the first 2 months after surgery. This program is everything I was hoping for. Within the first 6 weeks of engaging in breast cancer exercise restorative movement program, I gained 50% of my range of motion in both shoulders, so I registered again as soon as there was time on her calendar. Great program!
This is a phenomenal program for breast cancer patients to do in their homes during their recovery. Starr’s patients and colleagues have asked her to create an online program for newly diagnosed patients as well as the successful post-treatment programs, so many women have enjoyed. Starr…You are the best.
