iCan Service

iCan is a free holistic therapy course aimed at people living with cancer and beyond. It has been designed by experts to help cancer patients build on their physical activity and fitness, as well as learn more about managing fatigue, nutrition, and mental health.

Funded by Lingen Davies

iCan is managed and delivered by the team from Lifestyle Fitness & Physiotherapy, a 34-year-old Shrewsbury-based health and wellbeing company and is fully funded by Lingen Davies.

Get Active, Feel Good

The highly qualified and experienced team at Lifestyle Fitness previously ran the Get Active Feel Good programme and have now partnered with Lingen Davies Cancer Fund to run a service specifically targeted at cancer patients. Not only does it help people regain fitness during and after undergoing treatment, but also supports them with healthy lifestyle behaviour, their mental and emotional health, teaches fatigue management strategies, and encourages good nutrition.

What is iCan?

The programme involves ten different sessions focussing on various aspects of life during and after cancer. It is run over a five-week period and people can join the training online, or at sessions currently delivered at the University Centre in Shrewsbury.

Philosophy Behind iCan

Gareth Mapp, Director of Lifestyle Fitness, said the philosophy behind iCan is to enable lifestyle changes and encourage people to maintain those changes for overall health benefits.

“iCan is about helping to support people both during and after their cancer treatment. It takes a holistic approach to health and lifestyle, and encourages not just physical activity, but positive mental wellbeing, nutrition, and healthy lifestyles.”

“We give people cancer specific advice. Our ethos is very much about mindfulness, it runs through every session. iCan is set up so that people can contact the Team and each other whenever they need to. Individualised support, information and programmes are also available for everyone to access, throughout iCan.”
