About Beat Cancer Boot Camp. Based in Tucson, Beat Cancer Boot Camp (BCBC) is an exercise and support program that empowers and inspires cancer survivors to take
charge of their health, while conditioning their minds and bodies for healing. The 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization was created to encourage and support survivors to engage in physical activity throughout the many stages of fighting cancer. In addition to meeting for exercise, BCBC programs provide support, education and camaraderie for cancer survivors, their families and friends.
About Anita “Sarge” Kellman. Tucson wife and mom, Anita Kellman, R.T., (R) (M), is a licensed mammography
technician and a specialist in breast biopsies. Affectionately known as “Sarge” to thousands of BCBC “troops” and their boot camp buddies, Kellman has worked
in the medical field for nearly 30 years. She currently works as a clinical liaison for a Tucson breast surgeon. In 2004, Kellman met a woman who had recently been diagnosed
with breast cancer at an outdoor Navy Seals-style “boot camp.” Inspired by her new friend and the obvious benefit of the class in her recovery, Kellman, a
fitness enthusiast, adapted the boot camp techniques she had learned to create an intensive support group built around physical fitness—and Tucson’s first
Beat Cancer Boot Camp was born. Kellman is recognized throughout Tucson and Southern Arizona for her contributions to cancer awareness and women’s health issues. She is
host of the popular “Commit To Be Fit” segment on local NBC affiliate KVOA, where she teaches viewers exercise tips. Kellman is the author of “It’s a Beautiful Day for Boot Camp: Empowering Cancer Survivors with Physical and Mental Toughness.”
