Focus Keynote: Exercise & Life After Cancer

Sunday, February 3, 2019, 8:00-9:30 AM
Keynote: Exercise & Life After Cancer, Jenn Junk, Executive Directory, Recovery on Water

Speaker Bio:

Jenn founded Recovery on Water with Sue Ann Glaser in 2008. As a board member, a coach and the Executive Director of ROW®, Jenn has led the organization since its infancy. She brings her nonprofit background and coaching experience to manage the coaches, budget, assess programs and run the organization with the guidance of the Board Chair and Board of Directors.

Jenn is passionate about exercise for survivors and believes in the tool that exercise and the sport of rowing can be for patients recovering from cancer and other types of trauma. She continues to lead ROW today and hopes to build the organization so that it is a resource for survivors for years to come.

Jenn sits on the Advisory Board for Girls in the Game and the Board of Directors for South Side Community Rowing. Jenn likes starboard side, handstands, running marathons, eating hot wings (not at the same time) and kicking cancer’s butt–one rower at a time.

Session Description:

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Jenn joins the Focus Conference to show you just how to do that for the survivors in your community. In 2008 Jenn founded Recovery on Water (ROW) in Chicago, IL. While this program may seem like an exercise program on the surface, it is so much more than that; it is a program that empowers women after they have been defeated post breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Many studies over the years have proven the many benefits of exercise, especially for those recovering from breast cancer. We will discuss the cancer patient’s journey and how survivors are typically left confused about the body they’ve been left with after surgeries and therapies. Jenn will also discuss the need in the cancer survivorship space and how ROW has met that need in Chicago.
