Breast cancer surgeons in North Charleston recently launched "a New Year's resolution reboot" to encourage women to get out and exercise.

"Exercise is taking a more prominent role in the treatment of breast cancer," said Dr. Jennifer Fiorini, co-owner of The Breast Place. "Cardiovascular exercise three times per week has been proven to reduce breast cancer risk."

Women are encouraged to follow Fiorini and fellow surgeon Dr. Jennifer Beatty on Instagram and Facebook as they undertake this fitness journey.

"We are working to improve the long-term survival rate," said Beatty, in a press release. "Our fitness challenge provides support and structure to help patients succeed in developing healthy habits. It's also a great way to encourage the community not to lose sight of their 2018 New Year's goals."
