Exercise is important for women with breast cancer.

A new study finds increasing physical activity after a diagnosis could help improve the odds of survival.


Researchers looked at over 2,000 breast cancer patients over the age of 50.

They found less active women who started exercising for at least two hours a week lowered their risk of death by 50 percent.
