COLUMBUS, Ind. — Cathy Tower's arms and legs moved smoothly and quickly on an elliptical trainer at Mill Race Center while she looked out the fitness center's large windows to enjoy seeing trees changing to autumn colors.

Tower is making strides in her recovery from colon cancer, participating in the Columbus Regional Health Cancer Rehabilitation Program. She makes twice-a-week visits to the Mill Race fitness center to keep building her strength and endurance.

First offered in February and now available at five area sites, more than 200 patients have been evaluated for physical or occupational rehabilitation, as well as speech therapy.

Please read Thursday's edition of The Republic for more details.
