Exposures: I Care: Giving back after her own triumph

Published: Monday, Nov. 4, 2013 - 12:00 am

One smile from Pam Whitehead, at left above, could lift anyone’s spirits as she gently encourages cancer survivors working to rebuild their strength at the Savvy Fitness center in Folsom. Diagnosed in 2000 with uterine cancer, the Sacramento architect realized the need locally for a cancer recovery program on her own personal journey to recapture her health. She began cycling and became involved with the Livestrong Foundation, where she was recognized for her community outreach efforts and awarded money, which she used to launch the Triumph Fitness Program in 2005.

Through a partnership with Savvy Health Solutions, which provides instructors certified specifically to work with cancer survivors, the Triumph Cancer Foundation offers a free 12-week program at three area locations to participants who have completed cancer treatment.
