Marion Foreman

Cancer Rehab

Marion Foreman has been a practicing nurse for almost 50 years mostly working in the fields of palliative care and cancer. Marion has lectured for both the Open University and Homerton School of Health Studies about health and social care and about death and dying.
Marion held a senior nursing position as a lead cancer nurse and has had personal experience of living with someone with advanced cancer.
Ten years ago, Marion trained as a personal trainer and specialised in Cancer Rehab. Prior to retiring she ran three online exercise circuit classes for people who are living with cancer and offered support to many of them individually. She previously had a great involvement in the development of cancer care in hospitals local to her.
Marion’s passion is twofold; one is to make sure that any client can say ‘I have cancer’ and we don’t fall apart, that we can ask focused questions and consider what help we are able to offer, based on sound knowledge. The other is to help other fitness professionals to develop coping strategies so that when someone you have a professional relationship turns to you and asks you to help them to stay as healthy as possible whilst they deal with their cancer, you are robust and confident.
