Getting back on track after beating breast cancer with help from SuperSlow Zone.

A diagnosis breast cancer and lymphedema is incredibly challenging, even if you happen to be a medical professional of more than 50 years. Understandably vulnerable at times, physical therapist and home health care specialist Susan Hill turned the table on her stage 2 cancer diagnosis and let it shape her life. And in doing so, she became not only a breast cancer survivor, but a thriver.

“Like my physical therapy patients feel, my diagnosis felt like climbing a mountain until I took one step,” Hill said. “Sometimes goals can seem too big, too far, unattainable, or doable; however, you still set the goal.”

I tell my patients, ‘Let’s just take one step and get going.’ I needed the same help.” -Susan Hill

Following a partial radical mastectomy and rehab, 74-year-old Hill took her own advice and joined SuperSlow Zone personal strength training to help get back on track with her work, travel plans, life goals, and overall health.

“I tell my patients, ’Let’s just take one step and get going.’ I needed the same help,” Hill said. “So, I signed up at Super- Slow Zone for personal strength training. I took one step, with lots of help!” Regaining the strength to work with her patients was a must for Hill, who experienced an 8 percent drop in bone density, from chemotherapy to a nerve injury to her shoulder during her surgery.

SuperSlow Zone is a personal wellness and exercise studio, not a gym. As a professional service, instructors are focused on safely and effectively providing results-focused care. Joanie said 71 percent of new clients come from referrals and 21 percent of those are from physicians. SuperSlow Zone is accredited by the prestigious IAC- ET which accredits, among many others, the American Physical Therapy Association and the National Institute of Health.

“Clients come, stay and refer because it works. Super-Slow Zone clients are typically very busy men and women ages 35 to 75 and older, who require measurable results in their health, well-being and fitness in minimum time. All of us, like Susan, know that improving our outer strength supports improved inner strength.”

Taking it one step at a time, and with help from SuperSlow Zone professionals, Hill beat cancer and got back to her life, including a trip to Singapore with her grandchildren and competing with her sister in the Buffalo Bayou Regatta for canoes earlier this year – and coming in first in their division.

“Exercise is essential for my strength, posture, functionality, balance and, managing lymphedema,” said Hill. “I am little but strong!”
