When her radiation tech told her about a free eight session Pilates program, Pfenning jumped at the opportunity. The people she met there helped in ways she hadn’t anticipated.
“I feel very self-conscious about my body and they put me at ease,” Pfenning said, tearing up. “And they make sure I don’t do more than I can do. If something really hurts, then I don’t do it. But I really try to push myself to do as much as I can. So it helps me emotionally, spiritually, and obviously, physically. For my body, I’m trying not to focus on the lumps and bumps of it, but the strength I have and the breathing techniques that I’m learning and the strength.”
