The Cancer Foundation For Life® (CFFL) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in Tyler, Texas in 2001. The foundation is dedicated to increasing the quality of life for cancer survivors. Dr. Gary Kimmel, a retired oncologist, started the foundation to better the lives of cancer survivors through exercise. Our goal is to rehabilitate cancer survivors to their maximum level of strength and independence so they may achieve a better quality of life.

FitSTEPS for Life® is the name of our program that includes aerobic exercises, muscle strengthening and stretching techniques specifically designed for debilitated participants. To our knowledge, CFFL provides the only free structured, individualized program of unlimited duration.


Susan and DB Holt, First Christian Church, Tyler participants, have a very powerful testimony to share. Click here to see a video sharing their story.
