The OnkoAktiv network provides support to oncologic patients in finding sports and physical therapy programs close to their homes. It does so by approaching training partners in the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region and nationwide who are able to offer patients qualified support and care during the various phases of their oncologic treatment. The OnkoAktiv network's partners thereby offer programs that can provide sports-related support during the acute, rehab and aftercare phases. OnkoAktiv has more than 50 cooperating training and therapy institutions.
Another important aspect in this context is professional counseling with up-to-date information on sporting activities for cancer patients by means of various media such as telephone, internet or print media. In addition, the OnkoAktiv network would like to promote an informational exchange with other affected persons, for example, through the development of Internet-based discussion forums or the organization and implementation of events for patients.
