The Pink Ribbon Program, founded by Doreen Puglisi, MS, was created to help meet the goals of the breast cancer survivor. These major areas of concern typically include body image, frozen shoulder, and/or range of motion, depression and anxiety. This is a video from Doreen about the program and will give you a preview of some of the exercises. Allison the is a exercise physiologist as well as a certified pink ribbon program instructor.
Thankfully, due to early prevention awareness, breast cancers, as well as other cancers, are no longer being viewed as an automatic death sentence, but instead as a chronic illness. Recent studies indicate a link between moderate physical exercise and improved quality of life for all cancer survivors. Exercise protocols like The Pink Ribbon Program are needed more than ever as the population of cancer survivors grow.
This post-rehabilitation class is open to all breast cancer survivors whether their surgery was eight weeks ago or ten years ago.

“Working out with Allison and Pink Ribbon Pilates has helped to restore my confidence, flexibility, clear my mind and allow me to feel more in control of my body again.” ~ Kathleen
“Pilates with Allison has been a huge step in a positive direction. I had breast cancer surgery and was very limited with my movement and strength when I first started with the Pink Ribbon Program. Soon I became strong enough I started to take full hour privates, then duets, and then trios. Allison has given me a safe stress-free workout where I don’t feel pain in my body. All these classes have given me new confidence with my body and has allowed me to have a balance of strength all over my body instead of one area. I just feel better and happier with myself. Thanks!” ~ Marci
“Allison is extremely knowledgeable and continues to build on her practice year after year. She has a talent for catering the workout to your special needs while emphasizing overall well being. This program is just what I needed after surgery. ~ Ann
