Throwing Bones, an Asheville-based national nonprofit focused on supporting individuals living with blood cancer through programming, education, and advocacy, will host a free webinar on Exercise as part of Cancer Therapy, Monday, Aug. 10 from 2:30-3:30 p.m.

Throwing Bones Founder and Executive Director, Kenny Capps, who is living with multiple myeloma himself, said, “When you are diagnosed and living with cancer, you don’t have a lot of control over a lot of what is happening to your body, your life. Having access to experts and information about how you can take control, like appropriate physical activity, can make a big difference in your physical and emotional state.”

Panelists include:

  • Moderator Carly Bailey, Certified Exercise Physiologist, Physical Activity & Wellness Coordinator for UNC Comprehensive Cancer Center
  • Kenny Capps, Founder & Director of Throwing Bones, Certified Exercise Coach, Motivational Speaker, living with multiple myeloma
  • Dr. Sandra Eskew Capps, PT, DPT, MHEd, Previous President, Georgia State Physical Therapy Licensing Board

  • Dr. Saad Usmani, Chief of Plasma Cell Disorders Program & Director of Clinical Research in Hematologic Malignancies at Levine Cancer Institute/Atrium Health; Clinical Professor of Medicine at UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine, Throwing Bones Board member
