Breast cancer surgeons in North Charleston recently launched "a New Year's resolution reboot" to encourage women to get out and exercise.
"Exercise is taking a more prominent role in the treatment of breast cancer," said Dr. Jennifer Fiorini, co-owner of The Breast Place. "Cardiovascular exercise three times per week has been proven to reduce breast cancer risk."
Women are encouraged to follow Fiorini and fellow surgeon Dr. Jennifer Beatty on Instagram and Facebook as they undertake this fitness journey.
"We are working to improve the long-term survival rate," said Beatty, in a press release. "Our fitness challenge provides support and structure to help patients succeed in developing healthy habits. It's also a great way to encourage the community not to lose sight of their 2018 New Year's goals."

Right in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Breast Place is celebrating six years of helping women navigate their breast cancer treatment. To date, The Breast Place has treated over 6,000 patients, a major milestone for the company.
Serving as the only female-founded breast health facility in the state of South Carolina, The Breast Place offers same-day appointments and services throughout Greater Charleston, including North Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and West Ashley.
"Women are often too busy working and taking care of their families to take immediate action when they detect abnormal tissue or a lump in their breast," said Dr. Jennifer Beatty, founder of The Breast Place. "Our goal is to make it easier for women to get access to quality treatment so they can take care of themselves as well."
Coinciding with the last week of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Dr. Jennifer Beatty and Dr. Jennifer Fiorini, owners of and breast cancer surgeons at The Breast Place, will speak to groups throughout Charleston to generate awareness and educate women on the importance of being proactive with their breast care - offering much needed information on the best steps women can take before and after a diagnosis.
"We want women to know as much as about their treatment options as they do about early detection," said Dr. Fiorini. "The breast cancer death rate is on the decline but it's still the second-leading cause of cancer death. The more informed patients are, the more likely they are to act and increase their chances of survivorship."
