Empowering Cancer Survivors: A Cedars Sinai Clinical Study with Burnalong 

Woman supporting friend with cancer

Cancer is a formidable adversary, especially for the adolescent and young adult (AYA) population aged 18-39. This demographic faces unique challenges when confronted with a cancer diagnosis, navigating not only the physical toll of treatment but also the psychological and emotional upheaval that accompanies such a profound life event. In the pursuit of optimal survivorship outcomes, both physiological and psycho-social, there arises a critical need for evidence-based interventions tailored to the specific needs of AYA cancer survivors.

Enter Burnalong, a revolutionary platform that has emerged as a beacon of hope for cancer survivors at Cedars Sinai Medical Center. In a groundbreaking *clinical study conducted with Cedars Sinai patients, Burnalong has demonstrated remarkable efficacy in improving both the physical and mental well-being of AYA cancer survivors across various cancer types, including Breast, Thyroid, Colorectal, Lymphoma, Soft Tissue Sarcoma, Brain, and Central Nervous System cancers.

The results of the study are nothing short of inspiring. Participants reported tangible improvements in their physical health, as evidenced by increased strength, flexibility, and endurance. But perhaps even more profound are the gains made in mental health, with participants experiencing a newfound sense of empowerment and resilience in the face of their diagnosis.

What sets Burnalong apart is its personalized approach to behavioral programming. Recognizing that no two cancer journeys are alike, Burnalong offers a diverse range of holistic health classes and workouts tailored to individual needs and preferences. Whether it’s gentle yoga for relaxation, high-intensity interval training for a cardiovascular boost, or tai chi for balance and mindfulness, participants have access to a wealth of resources designed to support them at every step of their journey.

One participant reflected, “Burnalong has provided me with a very therapeutic and loving environment. I’ve surprised myself by logging in and trying new classes, and I’m proud of myself for continuing.”

But the benefits of Burnalong extend far beyond the physical realm. Through its online community, Burnalong has created a shared sense of belonging among participants, fostering connections and camaraderie that transcend the boundaries of geography and diagnosis. In the words of one participant, “Thank Goodness for Cancer Friends!”

These testimonials speak volumes about the transformative power of Burnalong, offering hope and inspiration to AYA cancer survivors everywhere. As we continue to unravel the complexities of cancer survivorship, platforms like Burnalong serve as beacons of hope, empowering individuals to reclaim their health and wellness in the face of adversity.

In partnership with Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Burnalong is pioneering a new era of survivorship care, one that prioritizes the holistic well-being of cancer survivors and harnesses the power of community and personalized support. Together, we can rewrite the narrative of cancer survivorship, offering a future filled with hope, resilience, and renewed vitality.
