Hi, I’m Marion Foreman. I’ve been a nurse for nearly 50 years, much of that spent looking after people on their cancer journey. I have been a hospice ward manager and a lead cancer nurse. I have lectured in universities and taught many nurses. I spent time as a BUPA health check nurse, meeting people with many health concerns.
In 2011 I trained to be a Personal Trainer (PT) and went on to successfully complete the Level 4 Cancer Rehabilitation Course. Studies show that physical activity and a healthy diet maximise your chances of living better and for longer. Being trained in cancer rehabilitation means I can guide you in how to enjoy a healthy lifestyle and exercise safely during and after your cancer treatment.
I work for a local cancer charity, running their ‘Get Active’ programme. This involves assessing every client referred to us and offering an appropriate programme. We can offer you a complete lifestyle guide looking at – exercise, healthy diet, sleep and stress.
I know that exercise is important for everyone on their cancer journey and I am committed to offering help to all of our clients, carefully assessing and offering very specific, tailor made help to live a healthy lifestyle.
I am also a co-chair of the Patient Advisory Board, working with the East of England Cancer Alliance, helping to improve the patient experience of living with cancer.
