I am a cancer survivor, and three time kidney transplant survivor. I have a degree in social work but over 30 years ago after my first kidney transplant; I dedicated my life to fitness. In 1994 I became certified as a fitness trainer and have been working in the field ever since. In 2004 after being diagnosed with anal cancer I became a cancer exercise specialist.
I own my own fitness company, Underwood Sports and Fitness. I train all levels and all ages, from the seasoned athlete to those living with chronic illness. I travel around the country speaking about the benefits of exercise, and the effects it has on quality and longevity of life, especially if you are living with or have had a disease. I walk the walk, and talk the talk. I have proven to the medical field many years ago (before exercise was touted as helpful) that exercise has a huge impact on one’s ability to recover and to combat side effects of chronic disease. This has been proven time and again as I not only survived but thrived after my transplants, chemo and radiation.
I have only survived these many years because of exercise and fitness. I have defied the odds coming through life and death situations 4 times. I believe exercise has been paramount to my quality of life, emotionally, spiritually and physically. It is my Prescription for life and for living! Doctors have agreed that I am where I am today because exercise was so important in my life. I am a living tribute to the fact that exercise is critical to one’s health and total wellness.
I have spent most of my life sharing my personal as well as professional experiences with others. If I can do it you can do it! Please come join me and let’s Boot Cancer and other chronic diseases through exercise and living a healthy lifestyle!
