Other Cancer Patients with Heart Problems Like Me

Started exercising at Toronto Rehab near Sunnybrook Hospital.

I’m in a class of 15 women with heart problems due to chemotherapy drugs.  Although I think I’m the youngest one there, I’m also the one in the worse condition.  All of us have our own tailored plan for walking/exercising and resistance training based on results from a test we had on a bike and breathing apparatus.  The others are all allowed to walk 8, 12, or 16 laps.  I am only allowed to walk 4.  I just want to cry.
