Why FitSTEPS for Life®?

The only known program of its kind, the FitSTEPS for Life® program is unique and life changing. The program heals the whole person both physically and psychologically.


All patients are doctor referred to the program and certified Cancer Exercise Trainers (CET) supervise the individualized, structured exercise and nutrition program.

We have experience working with virtually all diseases that occur with cancer including heart, lung, diabetes, hypertension, and Parkinson’s. Our staff has worked with more than 18,000 referred patients who have participated in more than 400,000 exercise sessions.

Open to Anyone

All adult cancer patients are eligible. We can help patients with any type or stage of cancer; any degree of debilitation including wheel chair dependency or on oxygen; at any point in cancer treatment or recovery; and even if you show the presence of one or more coexisting diseases.

FitSTEPS for Life® is free of charge to any patient for life. It is the only known program in the United States that is free, community-based, and achieves unprecedented benefits that far exceed those of traditional prescribed rehabilitation.

No Medical Insurance or Financial Obligations

Free actually means free at the FitSTEPS for Life® program. We understand the astronomical cost associated with cancer care. Since its inception, the Foundation has been funded by physicians, hospitals, family foundations, grants and private individuals. Because of the generosity of our community, we are able to provide this life changing program with no strings attached!


Participants become part of a community with cancer survivors experiencing similar challenges—someone who really walks in their shoes. This enables them to not just survive, but thrive.

Every day, we at CFFL renew our commitment to our core values of caring, integrity and discovery. As we continue to improve the quality of life for many cancer survivors, you can rest assured we’ll be both at the forefront and by your side.
