To survive breast cancer is an ordeal. It may involve a mastectomy and chemotherapy.

The recovery process can also be very difficult. Lisa Callahan is starting an exercise program for women who have survived breast cancer at Broward Health North on Monday mornings and Monday evenings.

“We work on resistance, stretching, aerobics, balance and coordination,” said Lisa Callahan, who is running the program.

For many women, the program encourages self-confidence. After a mastectomy, some women are uncomfortable moving and Callahan works to encourage women to move with confidence.

“We throw balls to each other and work on weights. We do air boxing and motion exercises,” said Callahan. She had a double mastectomy as a preventative measure against cancer. She is encouraging more women to join the program.


Khan met two men in a parking lot. One of the men shot Khan. A motive is not known. A gun was found. The two suspects drove away in a white SUV. Two people are being questioned about the shooting.

Among the candidates for the Coral Springs Commission, there is a divide on how to proceed on the proposed municipal complex. On one side, there is the feeling that $28 million is too much for new complex. On the other side, there is belief that the municipal complex will benefit Coral Springs and so will the planned Downtown that will surround it. Commissioner Tom Powers and now mayoral candidate believes the proposed municipal complex is a great idea and will benefit Coral Springs. Mayoral Candidate Walter “Skip” Campbell believes a new municipal complex is needed but should be built for less money.
